We seem to have skipped right past spring and into mid-summer. I heard the first spring peeper frog tonight, just one of him, but where there is one there will be more soon. The weather today was sunny and absurdly warm. I rode two horses; the gray old man not-too-hard so he wouldn't get sweaty and distressed, and the grumpy red mare with some tact. I took each one out to walk outdoors to cool off. One silver maple tree was humming – Margaret and I couldn't figure out what it was until we looked up and saw the bees. Not swarming, just lots and lots of bees making use of the early blooming.
I think I've mentioned it before, but I want to give these circles away. If you see a day you like particualrly, comment or email me, and I'll send it out to you.
