petit pois

As an exercise in form, made photograms from the vegetable garden.

Note on peas:  the whole plot - cultivated, staked with netting, & tended - yielded one cup of shelled, yummy peas.  Eat slow.

baby red shoulder hawks in Edna's yard

So while we're watching the baby hawks, the baby hawks are watching us, & their mother is probably watching my chicks.

Can one use the words "cute" & "hawk" in the same sentence?

There are two babies, one nest & what a nice bird butt.
