  • Mood:


Today is sunny, breezy, and mild.

I fed the birds.  I've seen a flock of grackles, several house finches, and some sparrows.

I picked up sticks from the south part of the ritual meadow, filling one trolley, and I dumped those in the firepit.

The pear tree is in full bloom, along with probable pear volunteers.  The first cherries are starting to bloom.  Lilacs have flower buds.  The buds on the bluebells in the forest garden are turning blue already.

EDIT 4/9/21 -- I went back out and desticked the north part of the ritual meadow.

EDIT 4/9/21 -- I picked up sticks from the auxiliary meadow and the prairie garden paths.  Those areas are now ready to mow.
