We had a first time visitor the other night -- a luna moth. These guys are nocturnal and have a life span of one week once they emerge from their cocoons. So I guess seeing them is somewhat rare.
The first tomatoes of the season have arrived! And the sunflowers are doing great too. The biggest ones are about 24" tall and are starting to present with their first buds.
Managed to sneak away to Boshamer Stadium the last two weekends for the NCAA Regional and Super Regional baseball action. The Tar Heels have advanced to their fourth consecutive College World Series in Omaha, NE. In case you glossed over that 'cause you saw the words 'baseball' and 'NCAA', read that again - their fourth consecutive trip. For lack of a more eloquent phrase, that's freakin' awesome!!! Go Heels! We'll be cheering for you when things get started this coming weekend.

Students watching from the dorm behind left field. They have a great cheering section up there.
