mottled hares. it has begun! robins, gulls, downey woodpeckers, nuthatch, chickadees, bugs, spider web, swarming cedar waxwings, crows, ravens, ladybugs, swans, geese, ducks, seeds, voles, rain ...
coyotes. gophers. winter eggshells, seedling starting pots. a branch of pussy willow that unexpectedly rooted. spring crocuses.
half of the half-eggshells were lost (to complete fracture) by poking holes in the bottom for drainage, but 48's enough. spring is sproinging. crunching shells when planting later, if there are plants, should work for root development.
it's hot w/ dragonflies. & recipes - garlic scapes.

2 dream deer. coyotes, a pheasant, hawks. and one fine bush lily!
what is it about daddy longlegs & woodpiles. harvestman, an animal, not a spider or Opilionids and Pholcids. the toe-biters (giant water bugs) yonder, not exactly pleasant imo, pincers just too huge. a cloud of bees in mint patch. a peony, languishing, now closer to ant hill. the little ants, crazy for yarrow. wasps, we've reached an accord.
some romas have ripened, delicious, must grow more next year. other tomatoes have flowers again. parsley and romaine lettuce from seed - whoot!
hot, then rainy, and hot some more.
