Thing You Don't See Every Day # 1: I think this has to be the first time I've ever seen my name on marquee. I'm not sure what I think about it. Eek.
If you'd like to witness this phenomenon in real life, come on over to the Paquette Gallery at the SteamPlant tomorrow (Friday, June 1) from 5-7pm for the advertised art reception.
Thing You Don't See Every Day # 2: Bighorn sheep. We do see them in our area, but I was surprised to find a trio of young rams down this low at this time of year. We are struggling with a deepening drought and I expect they're after whatever grass and water they can find. They're looking mighty scruffy... still trying to lose their winter coats.
Thing You Don't See Every Day # 3: A dragonfly laying eggs in a pond. And I actually had my camera with me... that should be Thing # 3 1/2.
Thing You Don't See Every Day # 4: Field sketches. Finally. I escaped for a bit today to an area called Bassam Park, about half an hour or so from here. I hadn't been in there in a long time, and I'd forgotten how interesting the landscape is. (This is where the bighorns and dragonflies were, too.) Wild iris are still blooming and I spent several happy minutes watching bees at work.
You don't see so many Things You Don't See Every Day every day now, do you? I don't. Not usually. And certainly not every day.
