Soda bread and squirrel banquet
Here's Butternut Boy enjoying the pear core I'd thrown out for him. It's one of the pears you saw on the windowsill. He also runs off with mango peels and canteloupe rinds.
Not many of the scraps I put out to nourish the earth get left to rot down. He knows where to look and I think he can tell time.
Indoors I was all set to make bread and found, unbelievably, I was completely out of yeast. So I made soda bread, not a great deprivation. Yeast is now on the shopping list.
My knitting groups have been running out of doors for a couple of weeks, but without me. With a brisk wind and temperature in the 60s f. I'm not up for sitting outside and trying to get my hands to work. This Friday might work though. We'll see. It's going to be a bit warmer. My inner introvert is saying let's not go and say we did..
This has been a long cold spring, and the flowers love it, blooming longer than usual, no hot days to get them blown out.
