Bluets in Bloom, or Quaking Quaker Ladies
Bluebird Nesting Box and Bluets
At this time of year, when you pass by a field with patches of white, stop and have a closer look. The Bluet’s tiny florets are actually a dreamy azure blue; the little bunches also “quake” in the seasonal breeze! Also called Quaker Ladies, the sweet petite blossoms attract Little Carpenter bees, Green Metallic bees, small butterflies, and the Meadow Fritillary Butterfly (Boloria bellona). Both nectar and pollen are the pollinator’s floral reward!

The Typical and Atypical Reading Brain
Lion’s Tooth – Beauty or Beast
The lowly dandelion (meaning lion’s tooth because their leaves resemble the teeth of lions), a bright sign of spring to some, a beastly invasive weed to those trying to maintain manicured green lawns or clear walkways. I love dandelions myself, and how can you not respect the tenacity, strength and determination of a plant that makes its way through concrete!

Davio’s….A Good Call.
My mom, sister, and I went to Davio’s for an early dinner on Saturday to celebrate Mother’s Day together. We made a reservation, but upon walking in, decided to sit at the bar since it was fairly empty and the dining room was filling up quickly…and was kind of loud. Besides, when Mom says, “Do you want to eat at the bar?” you do it!
We split 5 items from the “Piccoli Antipasti”, “Marchi”, and “Piatti Del Bar” sections of the menu. All of it was incredibly fantastic. The sangria was perfectly amazing also!!! And then….came the dessert cart. Bliss!

Hi! My name is Woof! I am a seven-month-old, white-and-tan male kitten. I am residing and relaxing at the Cape Ann Animal Aid, located at the Christopher Cutler Rich Animal Shelter in Gloucester. Check our website at: CapeAnnAnimalAid.com
I love it here. I have friends to play with, toys, big windows to look out, music and great staff and volunteers! Please stop by and visit me soon. I am dreaming about my forever home and I can’t wait to have a family to love.
Just remember, my name is Woof, but I am a cat.
