japanese garden, como conservatory

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.

Song of the day: Jackson Browne, Rock me on the Water


Japanese Garden, Como Park

Yesterday’s Phenology: Perfect spring day; rain a bit in the morning, cool and cloudy throughout the day, with moments of rain or drizzle. Probably stayed in the 40s all day. Another good day for reading, bookstores, coffeeshops, and more reading.

Song of the day: Riley Lee, Sanctuary

Yesterday’s Phenology: Another day of stormy skies and rain. Much too nice to spend at work, and yet, there we were. Nice thunderstorm in the evening, just after dinner.

Song of the day: Tom Waits, Make It Rain & Rain Dogs

Yesterday’s Phenology: Another cool cloudy spring day. Temp just nudged up to 50 degrees. Blue Jays are looking at things very critically, these days. They are vainglorious posers who are never around when there is real work to be done, but they love to complain about things.
Well, maybe they are not all like that.

Song of the day: Harry James and his Orchestra, When Your Lover Has Gone

 


the bicycle bugs are out…

Yesterday’s Phenology: This has been a pretty nice spring! This morning, in the 40s. Maybe it got up into the 50s today. Rained a lot in the morning, cloudy afternoon, and then more rain and a bit of thunder in the evening. Big buds are opening up everywhere.

Song of the day: Count Basie and his Orchestra, One O’Clock Jump
