Have you ever worn a bonnet? Any jaunty hats?
At my mother's house I've seen a hawk around for years. It seems there is also an owl. She missed getting a pic. All the houses sit on acre or half acre lots. There are enough rodents around to feed a hawk and an owl. Possibly families of them. That's a lot of rodents.
The forsythia are finally blooming. Daffodils. Magnolia. Some tulips, not many. Trees showed buds 3 weeks ago but i havent had a chance to mention. Those are starting to turn red & green now.
Oh! I drove by a swampy area while the weather was drizzling. The bare trees were covered in new lichen growth. So inside these dark acres of wet black swamp pale, sick green skeletons of trees. The ends of the branches were black in the rain with the very tips deep dark red of new bud growth. Black wet shine, sick green stripes and deep red clouds. The effect was so unearthly.
