Shades of March

Quite a bit of rain yesterday as a cold front passed through and the bottom has fallen out of the temperature. Highs Thursday were in the upper 70's but the low this morning was 41F. Had to turn the heat back on. Off today but the rain has made the garden unworkable so I will just start in on cleaning up some of the mess left by the tree people. Lots to do.

Good to the see the Boston flap is wrapped and very glad to see that the young man was taken alive. It is probably a safe bet to say that he PTB's were going to take him out in a hail of lead if they had their way. This is a better ending than I had hoped.

Probably not a good idea to live close to a fertilizer plant.

Off the depot to get the stuff I forgot to get yesterday when I worked...Duh!. The bluebirds, woodpeckers, yellow-rumped warblers(butter butts), blue jays, titmice, and the rest of the wildlife are going through suet cakes like crazy. Lots of little beaks to stuff with high energy fat I guess.

Off to get a rare Saturday off underway. Have fun out there.

Got an army of ladybugs from the garden store and released them in the yard. My Earth Day contribution to the neighborhood.
