#188 3 little duckies...

And finally they can swin again and don't have to lie on the cold ice and walk all the time. The algae below the water surface for sure hold a lot of food for them.

#186 Lemon Tree

I wonder how, I wonder why
Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky
And all that I can see, and all that I can see, and all that I can see
Is just a yellow lemon-tree

When posting this picture it came to my attention that if you look from far, it looks like palm fronds. Nice illusion!

The sun is out a lot these days and the temperatures are well clear of freezing, but not all pots are ready for spring time!
Hope that they will have beautiful flowers soon.

#171 What is this bird?

Hallo Opa!

Ich habe jetzt die ganze Woche keine Amseln in Ithaca gesehen (vielleicht gibt's die hier wirklich nicht), dafür aber ziemlich viele von denen hier. Weißt du, was das ist?


For our English speaking readers:
Hi Grandpa,

I haven't seen any blackbirds in Ithaca all week long (maybe they just don't exist here). Instead I spotted a lot of these ones. Do you know what species they are?

#170 Squirrels...scary when you see them close

Since this one was so brave, as mentioned 2 days ago, we could very close, and I have to admit, it lookes a little scary! You want to know another secret? : They are not so cute anymore if you see hundreds of them every day runnning aroung.

#169 Ithaca is colorful

Even the pols in the parking lot, which are supposed to prevent cars from driving into pedestrian walkways, are high-end design products. The striking red color makes a beautiful match with the bright yellow stripes. So Ithaca is colorful, not only by nature, but also by design. ;-)

#168 Squirrels... so cute...

And it is spring and they keep coming from everywhere! This one was particularly brave and seemed to be observing us, rather than the other way aroung. Anyways, very cute from the distance!

#167 Ithaca Falls

#164 They will rip open our street

This was in our letter box this week. We are looking forward to weeks upon weeks of waking up to the joyful sounds of busy workers digging up our street. Luckily the power lines are above ground here in America so the digger drivers will have less chances to cut our power supply. They might hit water though. Or oil.

#163 Rules of the Road @ Cornell

I have to confess something. I rode my bike on the sidewalk. I also parked on campus (in a parking lot that is) at 3am in December (to hand in a prelim).
