Twitter Weekly Updates for 2012-10-07

  • Sunlight filtered through thin clouds—it's almost spring-like, apart from the yellow leaves, the goldenrod, a white-throated sparrow's song. #
  • Blastocyst: http://t.co/Hmj1lYKO The final installment in my Small World series, I suspect. Series link: http://t.co/c7kvZcuz #
  • Something glitters on a tansy stalk next to the porch: the hard foam surface of a praying mantis egg case. A tiny spider dangles alongside. #
  • The lilac trembles from rain without and a flock of migrant sparrows within. The stiltgrass in the yard seems redder than yesterday. #
  • I'm off for a week. Updates from the porch should resume on Oct. 9. #
