Lemons of the Day #2158

Another busy day today, and the dim grey skies discouraged any seagull-watching over lunch, so I spent most of the day inside, not too far from a computer screen. Walking home I took some small joy in focusing on things in the distance, and just being outside in the cool air. From the train I’d seen, for a minute, a hint of sunlight, but it was gone when I disembarked; I arrived home to find the lemons all surrounded by a cold sky.

Shifting gears is always a bit disorienting, but I’m having fun with this.

  1. On our lemon bushes, the ants have farmed aphids or scale (a slow moving, sap sucking dot of an insect). The parasites use so little energy that their poop is high in sugar, which the ants crave.

  2. Could have been Argentine, but most ant colonies are pretty clever about gathering food.
