Today is sunny, warm, and calm.

I fed the birds.  Plenty of activity today -- sparrows, doves, house finches, grackles, cardinals, robins, and a Bewick's wren. 

I started pulling weeds around the forest garden.

EDIT 5/5/19: Round Two, I did more weeding around the forest garden.

I've seen a new bird today, gray with a black cap.  I think it may be a gray catbird.

EDIT 5/5/19: Round Three, I did more weeding around the forest garden.

The birdgift apple tree is blooming.  :D

EDIT 5/5/19: Round Four, I  did more weeding around the forest garden.  As it is now dark, I am done for the night.

This poem is spillover from the February 5, 2019 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] wispfox, [personal profile] gingicat, and [personal profile] lone_cat. It also fills the "meal" square in my 2-5-19 card for the [community profile] fluffbingo  fest, and the "partying with someone" square in my 9-5-18 Kind and Soft card for the 1000 Words or Less Bingo fest. This poem is posted as barter for [personal profile] fuzzyred updating the Antimatter and Stalwart Stan thread, to which it belongs.

This was supposed to be posted in April of 2018, but either was forgotten or eaten by the snails.

This poem was written outside the regular prompt calls, inspired by the "Election Day" square of my 11-1-16 card for the Fall Festival Bingo fest. It was sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Antimatter and Stalwart Stan thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.
