Picnic Grounds of the Ancients

These mysterious structures were built millions of years ago, perhaps, by ancient suburbanites of this locale. The local legends speak of something referred to only as “weenie-roasts.” What actually took place here, what purpose these small monolithic structures served, what happened to the forgotten tribes that used them for some long lost purpose… well, we may never know the true story. We are left with conjecture and imagination. Could this be the representation of an ancient spacecraft that landed here before recorded time? Or it is an igloo precursor, hewn from stone by long-lost technology? Or some sort of communication device? Or an early sauna? Or the beehive of the gods???

Yesterday’s Phenology: What can you expect? Hot and mostly sunny. Mid 80s and humid. Big rainstorm last night went north and south of us. We stayed dry.

Yesterday’s Phenology: A good day for working in the yard; partly cloudy and warm with a cooling breeze. Not that you’d want to spend all day working in the yard. But, still, if that’s what you did, it was a good day for it. A little bit of thunder in the early evening as a cold front rolled through. A bit of rain and a huge rainbow. No pot of gold found this time, though.

Song of the day: Sakura, Cherry Blossoms

Yesterday’s Phenology: Well, pretty darn nice. Got up to about 80 today, with a wee bit of breeze. A perfect day for working outside, dog walks, and a long bike ride. And a day off from work!

Song of the day: José Feliciano, Light My Fire

Yesterday’s Phenology: A cool and cloudy day. Nice looking clouds. They tried to rain a bit, and managed to do so, here and there. Temp topped out at 60. Nice.
