I lose myself in

the basil until I hear

hummingbirds mating.

I actually used to pass this darling little house on the stairway almost daily a few years ago. It’s about eighteen inches tall. I was delighted to discover when I went to look at it again that not only was it still there in Bellevue, but someone had given it a fresh coat of paint. Notice that the address on the front door in the bottom photo is 202 ¼ Grant.

still full...of hot air!
