It's really a pleasure to walk on the path along the irrigation canal and I'm trying to take advantage of it as often as I can.
Before long these geese will strong-arm their way into possession of the paths, to say nothing of the copious goose poop and it looks like there are going to be a lot of poopers very soon. Click for big to see how many! Plus you really need a dog on a leash to avoid conflicts with the possessive males.
Like everyone else here, I'm struggling with spring fever and learned from last year that if you plant too soon, the last frost will get the last laugh. So I hope I'm demonstrating patience by planting seeds indoors: heirloom cucumbers, basil, tomatoes and next week I'll add zucchini seeds.
I swore I wouldn't buy any plants until June, but that was before I went to Costco and saw these pansies, day lilies and petunias, and against my better judgement, they are all in the ground.
I'm not the only one with spring fever. Maddie loves sitting on the sill closest to the bird feeder. This is the closest she'll ever get to it and she seems to be okay with it.
I ran down to the library after my art class this morning for some reference books to help with my project. For whatever reason I looked up and noticed that there are different quotations on the building. My favorite: "Access to knowledge is the superb, the supreme act of truly great civilizations." A man entering the building at the same time as me also stopped to look up and said - How about that? They even used a living person!
