One of my neighbors enjoying brunch in one of the cork oak trees of our neighborhood.

    1. Merci beaucoup!

      You probably know that “a moveable feast” is a quote from Ernest Hemingway: “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”


    1. The squirrels were very frisky this morning, chasing one another up and down and around the trees and across lawns. I think this one was saying “I dare you!”


  1. He’s a cutie! He has more red in him than our gray squirrels, though they look similar. I was watching a chipmunk the other day gathering nuts and bedding before diving down his hole. They get a lot into those cheek pouches!
    I love the texture of the bark on the cork oak.


    1. He showed up for this morning’s walk – him and about 50 of his buddies. I think when it comes to squirrels, this guy has charisma.
      I love the bark on the cork oaks – it’s very thick and it makes me want to pinch it. There’s another tree on the same street that I like. It’s bark feels exactly like chamois. Or suede. Are they the same thing?


      1. Chamois is a small wild goat/deer native to the mountains of Europe. Its soft leather was called by this name, but luckily for these poor little guys, someone figured how to make a soft cloth out of cotton that replaced the demand on its pelt. Whew! So now I’m curious about just what this ‘chamois’ tree is!
        I got a kick out of you wanting to pinch the cork – just something I would do – lol!


Looking forward to your thoughts
