evening lights

In our environmentally-responsible little 'hood, we're very careful to regulate lighting so as not to pollute the sky - with the consequence that on a clear night, one can see more stars than one would ever believe possible.  So there are strict rules about when to take down one's holiday lights, and I may, indeed, be transgressing them by now.  On the other hand, this tree trunk of solar-powered blue pin pricks are only visible for a few hours before they dim.

In other news - when I went outside to take this picture, I found the downside of the rapid thaw, the warmed-up day - every single gopher in Eldorado had decided, it would seem, to aerate our back yard.
