Song of the day: Patsy Cline, Walkin’ After Midnight
Yesterday’s Phenology: A sunny day. Oppressively so. With a bit of a headwind, if you’re biking in an easterly direction, unpleasant if you’re tired and on your way home and going up hill. The garden flourishes, though. Kale and lettuce, baby cucumbers on the vine, and raspberries soon to make an appearance.
Song of the day: Jerry Jeff Walker, Desperados Waiting for the Train
Yesterday’s Phenology: Another perfect day, partly sunny, with a high of maybe 70? A tad breezy, but just plain nice, really. Went to the dogpark, saw many dogs, including a deerhound that looked like a bit of a cross between a borzoi and an Irish Wolfhound. Saw a kingfisher kingfishing, and perhaps some mature redstarts flitting about in the trees.
Song of the day: Mississippi John Hurt, Monday Morning Blues
Yesterday’s Phenology: A nice sunny warm dry day. And a bit breezy. And everything is pretty green again
Song of the day: The Vogues, Five O’Clock World
Yesterday’s Phenology: A surprisingly nice day, after recent weather occurences, with sun, and blue sky, and reasonably warmish April temps. Wood ducks, mallards, and canadian geese all getting along around the pond. People could learn a thing or two from these water fowl.
Song of the day: Joe Cocker, With a Little Help From My Friends
Yesterday’s Phenology: Sunny and warmish — though the day did start off with scraping ice off the windshield. But, a momentary disappointment. The day improved. The sun warmed. Wood ducks waddle by the pond. Geese pout by the paths, all surly and annoyed. I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a cheery Canadian Goose. They are malcontents.
Song of the day, Petula Clark, I Know a Place
