Friday Yardening
Today is gorgeous, sunny and much cooler than it has been.  It's currently 79F which is perfect for yardwork.  

So we went out and picked up a bucket of sticks in the savannah.  Then we cut several small trees' worth of honeysuckle and hauled that to the brush pile.  *gasp pant wheeze* 

We spotted an abandoned bird nest in one bush.  Also I saw a pretty big nest up a tree.  I'm not sure what it is, but it's made of twigs (instead of leaves like a squirrel flet) and it's bigger than most of the songbirds.  Too small for great horned owl or hawk, though.  I am wondering if it might be kestrel or something else in that size range.

Round 2, I went out to spray the stubs of honeysuckle and some poison ivy.  Then I spotted a tree with late mulberries on it and picked those, along with some blackberries.  Finally I trimmed grass around the septic garden, so it actually looks like a garden again and not a giant pile of weeds with a few marigolds in it.

Cicadas are singing.  We got rain last night, everything's still wet, so it's a good mating day for them.  They need soft wet soil to lay their eggs in.  Mosquitoes are out too.  >_<
