Nature Notes: Morning Has Broken
Houseguests are due any minute, but I didn't want to miss out on Nature Notes, so you're getting a quickie:
In a nutshell, we seem to have a new neighbor somewhere to the north of us who loves guns. I mean, loooooooves guns. He starts shooting around 6 or 7PM and keeps it up until after dark. It's like living beside a rifle range.
So. Since that totally winds me up, I stay inside in the evening, where I can't hear it. To get my daily dose of natural peace and tranquility, I have to get out there in the morning before work.
And I am not a morning person.
However, I have discovered that the world looks entirely different in those early hours. I am now involved in a love affair with dew drops and dawn light.
I guess every cloud really does have a silver lining. But if Mr. NRA keeps this up, I'm going to have to have a chat with him. Not looking forward to that.
Hope everyone has a great (and gunshot free) holiday!
