Since people aren’t speeding their cars bumper to bumper on our streets, I’ve seen a much better use of the word bumper: we have a bumper crop of bunny rabbits and squirrels in our Seattle neighborhood. And songbirds! The mornings are a symphony.
On a walk a couple days ago, in the afternoon, we saw this lovely barred owl fly into this tree close to us and stare at us in that unsettling way that owls do. We were only a couple blocks from our house.
It was wonderful! Mother nature lives!
