What else can one wish for?

A beautiful Saturday, a few clouds, some moderate rain that cleaned up all the dust that’s been piling up on my doorstep for the past months due to construction works near by.

These are some views that can be seen from our home these days.

Three hyraxes in our garden were captured by the municipal animal-catchers and delivered to out-of-town locations, where they will hopefully be just as happy.   Haven’t seen any since.

During the fall, the grapefruit tree,  which had two-thirds of its leaves eaten up, has began to grow lots of new, healthy  leaves.

They also caught three yard kittens and took them to the municipal veterinarian, and were vaccinated and neutered.  During the last few months two of them, and one older,  have been living on a ledge on the kitchen window. I bought a cage large enough for them and they seem very happy. Thy are really sweet and friendly.

We managed to catch by ourselves around five or six mice. No glue traps ! We just trap them and find them a new home … away from neighborhoods.

A couple of days ago I saw (and filmed) a bulbul bird, emptying a pomegranate.  It kept on entering the fruit and coming up with the red grains in its beak;
