Springtime evening

Beautiful moon tonight. Funny how it looks bigger in real life than in the picture. I had an artist speak at my store once, who does a lot of local landscapes, and he said he often has to exaggerate the size of Mt. Baker in his paintings, compared with how it looks in a photo, to match the impression it makes in your mind when you see it.

The robin who was here a while back built this great nest, but now he doesn't seem to be living in it. I thought maybe my pottering around my flowers last weekend might have scared him off. Or maybe one of the neighborhood cats (two of whom I saw noticing his activity) ate him. Tonight I thought I saw him again. Hopefully he just moved into a tree.
