Templeton update & robins
It has happened! Even before I reached to right crabapple tree I could sense that it had happened. Templeton has retrieved his egg. I can only guess it was ripe enough for him to show it to Wilbur. I counted four times and reached the conclusion there were 24 robins today. They keep moving, the little runts, and they are so hard to see in the decayed leaves. And bold! They will almost let me walk right by them without pausing in their worm hunt. No gophers today, but a hoard of freed students playing Frisbee in the statue garden.
