Pear trees blooming in town (before I fell ill.)
I'm 99% sure this is one of 2 large, laurel oaks in our backyard. I know they litter the yard with acorns every fall, regardless.
The raccoon was back again today, but had a lot of catkins to contend with in its attempts to pilfer birdseed. The pollen counts lately HAVE to be high. Both of our cars have turned pale yellow-green.
Even the crane flies were getting bizzay.
I haven't seen more indigo buntings since the other day, but I did spot a couple of male brown-headed cowbirds out back yesterday.
In other news, my humble, little blog was recently honored as one of The Best 47 Photo Blogs on the Web.
My blog-friend, JJ, also recently gave me a "Happy 101" award. I'm now going to break most of the rules (as usual,) but here are 10 things that make me happy; Charles, birds, stargazing, hiking, hearing from family & friends, artistic creation, dreamworking, relaxing on my deck, Strawberry Newtons and nature.
