Opening my eyes revealed swarming multitudes in the plum tree, so I casually picked up my beach towel and little pillow and sauntered back to the carport, contemplated a tailgate nap, then watched the swarm reappear just across the garden...then read this bit from Toledo School District’s Facebook page (link here).
