When the blackbird flew out of sight,
It marked the edge
Of one of many circles.
Yesterday’s Phenology: 48 degrees or so today. Yup. 13th of February and 48 degrees. Some of the nearby lakes, the ice is starting to look suspicious. Beautiful evening for a dog walk. With the moon not yet up, and only patchy clouds, the air seemed very clean and you could see a lot of stars and planets from the backyard. Venus is quite bright in the evening sky, Mars a bit less bright. Orion was up in the Southeast, with Sirius. Very beautiful night.
Song of the day: Nina Simone, Blackbird
