No matter what you call it, I hope you all are enjoying Summer Solstice (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, that is)!
While gardening a few days ago, I looked up and lo and behold . . . visitors . . .
And then the four cubs saw me and proceeded to climb up this tree. I estimate them at about 3-5 pounds/each.

Have a wonderful, not-hellaciously-hot summer!
Hope you all enjoyed the “conclusion” of October. Onward, for us, to a fog- and moisture-filled November. I wonder if this spider’s sparkly necklace and curtain of fog bode loads of snow-des for winter!

Who knew it was National Dessert Day, the publication day of A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh (1926), or poet ee cummings’ birthday? (Thank you, Children’s Book-a-Day Almanac.) Let’s have some fun with this . . .
Although alive, this one was fortunately behind glass. (And now the incomparable Ed Yong on a komodo necropsy.)
