Question for April 29, 2019


Who is your favorite musician?


Listening to one musician is like eating only one food.  Variety is the spice of life.

I'm rather partial to my backyard.  Had I planned, I would have taken a picture of it before it got dark.


This house was built in the late 1970's.  It has had a progression of owners (it's a "starter home"), some of whom were seriously into gardening (hence, the greenhouse) and some who weren't (hence, why the greenhouse is in a slight state of disrepair).  It has reached a point of... manicured neglect that it's like a small nature preserve. We get plenty of birds at our feeder, a bunch of manic squirrels who sometimes just collapse and lay on the deck when it's hot out, and a large raccoon who lives in a pine tree (although I haven't seen him recently).  I'm pretty sure we have a catbird nest in one of the azaleas.  It's nice, it's peaceful, it's pretty, and I don't spend nearly enough time back there.


There's also a birch tree, which I want to try to collect seed pods from this year.



A more traditional "special" place is the Museum of Life and Science in Durham, NC.  My wife and I went on our first excursion there and it's where we got married 13-ish years later.

manicured neglect... I like that. Its a beautiful evocative phrase!
