In spring, a young worm's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love
In the garden this morning: earthworms doing it!! It was hilarious - they were each halfway out of a hole in the dirt, with those thickened part of their bodies aligned and touching. Then I accidentally startled them and they separated and zipped back down their respective holes like teenagers when the parents come home.
Also, next door: squirrels doing the vertical tango on a tree trunk. Who says romance is dead?
In the yard: our second brown thrasher of the season (flinging mulch everywhere), and a rose-breasted grosbeak. Also, the white-crowned sparrows have arrived.
I've finally cleaned off the desk in the guest room and now have a place to study that is away from the usual house activity. Now if only I could clean out my brain as easily. Tomorrow is May 2. MAY 2!!!! Two freaking months. I'm doomed.
