Happy First of May!
Do you believe this???
Still cloudy, however, we only had sprinkles today.
The weeds are going CRAZY. Even if there were chickens in the little henyard, they would soon be lost behind the weeds!
The mutants, however, are doing fine.
As are the wild birds.... I am still feeding them, though I expect to only do so for another 4 weeks or so. Then I'm gradually going to take all the feeders down... and quit putting feed out. It will be the best time of year, when there is plenty of abundant food... so they will be fine, but I'll miss them very much.
That was one of my greatest joys at the old place.
I am going to put up a feeding station here at the new house, but have not decided on where, yet.
We hope to make a sitting area on the side patio... with flowers and a few vegetables. I hope to be able to show you that sometime in the next two weeks.
The feeder may go there.
No more flat feeders, though... too much waste and spillage.
See my companion? She goes with me almost daily now... she has found that she LOVES to ride in the car, even on errands. Soon it will be too hot, though.
I worked in the shop today for a few hours, and drove over to it. Lilly was studiously ignoring me, because we had run down to Sonic for lunch, and she had a junior deluxe hamburger laying in the grass out of sight, and was waiting to eat it. She did!
Those random tulips I planted everywhere last fall are paying off now... and surprising me!
We should have some iris blooming within just a few days. I noticed that there are lots of old iris blooming around the older parts of Tonganoxie already.
I'm so glad I'll get to enjoy it!
