Charlottesville Colonnades Senior Living Community Lifelong Learning PLACE

A shrinking space …

I am so happy, however, to have my own safe, comfortable place to weather the pandemic … or economic and social turmoil, tropical storm … or whatever fate throws at us! No, I haven’t moved, but after four months of daily walking and gardening in our beautiful grounds, I have decided now to self-quarantine inside my apartment until the testing and contact tracing can control our local spike in COVID cases.

A small world, to be sure, but I am so grateful for my ever-changing balcony garden with cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, flowers, vines, and lots of tiny creatures to observe. Who knew there was a moth (Hemaris thysbe) that looks like a minute hummingbird?
