Yesterday it rained; today it's damp. I've gotten more yardwork done, but don't know if I'll get outside today. Seen at the bird feeders this week: small flock of sparrows, several mourning doves, a pair of cardinals, many grackles, a rose-breasted grosbeak, a yellow-bellied sapsucker, and five blue jays. Tulips are done blooming. Currently blooming: violets, honeysuckle, zinnias, nannyberry. The poppies have flower buds on them. They look like fuzzy little aliens.
