Still nobody sick in my community – whew! We are practicing social distancing – at least, I am and I’m also wearing a mask if I am in public which isn’t often. I’ll be going to church Sunday morning and will wear my mask if I’m even close to anyone but the piano sits at the front and nobody is close to me. I will duck in and duck out – quickly.
More work in the yard today – it was a gorgeous day – one of those days which makes any yard work fun!
I did drive to the next town today to pick up just a few more plants but couldn’t shop because the power was out in the entire town of Forest City due to someone running into a transformer. Bummer – a wasted trip.
So I’ve seen an oriole twice and I know it’s time because this tree is blooming and when these “candles” appear, so will the Orioles.
Remember when I talked about the strings on the walnut tree? I cleaned up some more of them today. This is what I’m talking about:
I’m not sure what kind of bird this is but I heard him hit the window so I ran outside to pick him up until he revived. Anybody know? A juvenile robin, maybe?
See all this “stuff” in the screened porch? In the bottom of those danged diagonal sections that my contractor thought would be so neat? I just wanted vertical dividers and I was right. I can’t get these small places cleaned and this year since I won’t be entertaining anyone in my porch, I’m not cleaning each section. I can enjoy the porch without waxing the floor or cleaning up every bit of dust. Porch is ready for summer!

And here’s a pot of Millie!
I really thought I’d start moving the plants outside today but I did this instead – potted up some shrubs and trees from my grove and yard.
Now I just hope they’ll all grow!
A mystery quilt finish and one Dirty Dozen project:
Honestly it’s been a slow day on the farm – I’ll do a walk-around photo shoot tomorrow and move some plants if it doesn’t rain. And just so you know, I love to hear from you!
Be still, Everybody!
