Today is partly sunny and mild.

I fed the birds.  I've seen sparrows, house finches, and  mourning doves today.

I picked up sticks from the barrel garden to the goldenrain tree.

EDIT 4/17/21 -- We cut brush in the prairie garden from the east edge, along the north path, down part of the west path.  Yay, progress!

Redbud trees and pie cherries are in full bloom.  Wild strawberries are starting to bloom.

EDIT 4/17/21 -- I finished picking up sticks from the yard by the house.
