Titmice have been feasting lately on a sunflower seed head on a table on the deck.
They come one at a time,
harvesting the seeds in neat rows before they eat them or store them away.
Meanwhile, the monarch chrysalis continues to darken.
The caterpillar to monarch butterfly should take 10 to 14 days,
or so I've read;
this is day twelve, and it's starting to feel like waiting for water to boil.
From the deck, Barley watches me as I watch the cocoon.
"Wake me up when it happens."
