That day in the yard I was so surprised to see all of the birds. We have such a big flock of doves now.
It is so fun to see birds again. I just love to sit outside at dusk and watch all of the cattle egrets and ducks and the bats. The egrets and the ducks hurrying home and the bats waking up.
I think that I will finally reach my goal if I am not careful and have the whole 2 1/2 acres in garden. I ordered a bunch of different kinds of pumpkins. Warty, white, Cinderella, all colors of Jack be Littles
Now when I go to bed at night, I think about manure, and mulch and tomato plants. Then lots of sunflowers. None yellow. I have yellow seeds. I still haven't got the food seeds I want. Like squash and eggplant and all of that. I find myself promising, I will remain weed free all summer. I will have the garden of my dreams. Do you think it odd that for my birthday, I asked Ron if he would go down to the lady at the end of the street and ask her to bring dump loads of horse manure she has out in front of her riding stables? I can't think of anything else I would like more. Spring has hit me hard. I have finally lost it. :)
Well, here we are at Monday. I hope yours is nice, and this is the last snowstorm for you all in the path of it today.
