    I’m not convinced that’s the real eostre bunny. It’s not carrying a basket of chocolate eggs, nor is it walking on its hind legs. FAKE!

    Duh, the pics were taken on MOnday. In civil life she’s a young doe named Molli and is the latest addition to the family*. She is very shy except when you got dandelion and is still positively freaked out by green grass and the idea of outdoors. She was like “oh, grass, must nibble! Oh, grass, behind me, must nibble! Oh, grass over there, must nibble! …”

    *If you’d told me as a kid that one day my dad would buy and care for pets I’d have sent you to the doctor.


    Does it lay eggs?

    Very small and brown ones.

    I had my jackrabbit siting for the month this afternoon. It was poking around under an evergreen on the front lawn of the high school I went to. They seem to like Saskatoon given how many I’ve seen in the last few years, and how many different places I’ve seen them.

    But of course the teeth are A-Sharp Major. (rim shot and trumpet going wah wah wah)

    Any way, musical bad puns aside, she’s very cute.

    About the second photo of dramatic skies and a house, the buildings where you can find that steep roofs here are mostly (medieval or 19th century) churches for some reason.

    It’s certainly a typical angle here, esp. in slightly older houses. Something to do with not collecting too much snow during the deep dark winter, I think. Also something about heatspace within that upper triangle, but that could be me imagining things from random commentary accidentally overheard.

    I wonder if steeper roofs are more common in areas where thatched roofs have been common. Here traditional roofing materials before the era of wooden and ceramic shingles and sheet metal were birch bark or split logs and the steepest single-pitch roofs tend to be 45°.

    The mildly deranged penguin says steep roofs like that are often found in areas prone to subterranean vikings. Those buugers tunnel up from the volcanoes below, then rummage and ravish the ground level. Being naturally at home in the deep dark, the high light (mistranslated, albeit understandably, as sky light) was a safe hiding place.

    Also convenient for the boiling oil, albeit not the dying battery, as mine is now doi—

    It’s a delight to see the rainbow. If you hadn’t mentioned it, I would’ve missed it.
