The white in the green, eloise butler garden

Yesterday’s Phenology: Upper upper 60s today, and a little breezy. Clouded over in the afternoon. The grass is tall, though there are those of us who follow the old tradition of not mowing before May 15th, lest your ears fall off. Probably nothing to that, but, still, why take a chance? Sea gulls in the parking lot in the morning, making a racket. The usual geese and ducks around the pond. I’m watching for buffleheads and cormorants. Where are they? My local naturalist thinks that yesterday’s turtle may have been a baby snapper. I think she may be right.

Song of the day: Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Cowgirl in the Sand
