Because the peonies are blooming!!
See that bird, up in that tree? Do you remember those annoying car alarms, the ones that would go “tweet, tweet, burrup, burrup, breee, breee, breee?” The alarm would cycle through a number of annoying sounds. This bird, whatever the heck it is, would imitate that car alarm all day long. I call it the annoying bird.
I stayed up until nearly midnight to see the eclipse of the wolf moon, but I sleep at night. Mark, my husband, doesn’t. So he looked at the moon, and in the morning I found this picture he drew for me.
Red and green and a stone cat. Merry merry.
