Saturday, March 21, 2015 – Today I saw the ground dwelling leaf cutter bees and also a house finch that didn’t seem able to fly far, though he was able to hop up into the miniature grove of aspen, Oregon grape and juniper that is part of my front yard.

Monday, March 23, 2015 – Today I journeyed forth to visit a new friend.  We shared ancestor stories, green tea in an iron pot, fun company of a little Buddha named Aidan, and the play of light off of trees, clouds and pine needles from her balcony.  Then I ventured home and stopped to see birds and clouds over the Wasatch.  The photo at the top of this post is from this day.
