C and I both spotted 'our' Pied-Billed Grebe, returning after its short migration to who knows where. It was almost impossible for C to snap a picture of our little darling, as she dove and then resurfaced a ways away, as is their custom.
I doubt that I would see my Grebe if I was living in the city fulltime, and I dare guess I wouldn't have my little veggie garden either. Here's what I've got growing right now:
I leave on Sunday to fly to Seattle where I will be met by my Blogger Buddy Gerrie. We are taking Beyond Kimonos: Color Rice Paste Resist on Silk at the Coupeville Art Center and will be sharing accomodations at a nearby B&B. I am really looking forward to meeting Gerrie in person and getting to know her better, learning another dye process on silk, and to spending some summer time in the Pacific Northwest. WooHoo!!! OK, so I'd better go get packing!
