Yesterday’s Phenology: A bit warmer today, and maybe a bit sunnier? Was this the second longest day of the year? 15 hours and 37 minutes of daylight, according to the US Navy Observatory. Very nice. Much appreciated, after those long cold winter nights. But, of course, we’ve turned the corner now…
Song of the day: War, Slippin’ Into Darkness
Yesterday’s Phenology: A tad on the breeeeezy side, but let’s not quibble. Lots of clouds, and temps in the 70s, after a night with occasional rain. Almost perfect out there today, except for those biking into the wind.
Song of the day: Paul Simon, I Know what I Know
Yesterday’s Phenology: More sun, more warm. Late afternoon clouds. Lots of little branches littering the ground because of the storms and the wind. No rain tonight, though.
Song of the day: Sonny Rollins Trio, Weaver of Dreams
Yesterday’s Phenology: a warmish morning, followed by gathering clouds in the afternoon, followed by thunderstorm, followed by cool damp evening. Nice! My phenology reports are seriously hampered by being locked in the office all day. (okay, I’m not actually locked in all day.) However I did note little tiny baby raspberries on the raspberry bushes today.
Song of the day: Los Lobos, When the Circus comes to Town
Yesterday’s Phenology: Sunny, clear, very warm, perhaps even hot out in the sun. Not so bad in the shade. A perfect evening to sit outside at the Sea Salt restaurant, enjoying a nice dinner and a delicious beer.
Song of the day: Miles Davis, Summer Night
Yesterday’s Phenology: Summer. Upper 70s and sunny. May was cooler than average – the first month that was cooler than average after a string of 18 warmer than average months. I expect we will be starting another string of warmer than average months in the very near future.
Song of the day: Jerry Lee Lewis, Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On
Yesterday’s Phenology: Almost a perfect day, especially from a bike-riding perspective: overcast. upper sixties, low seventies? Not much wind at all. All this led to a pretty nice ride. There’s a lot of water locally. There’s a gully by the greenway that is usually dry. I see cats down there sometimes when I’m just getting onto the bikeway. Today: 4 mallards, paddling about. Now that all the trees are leafed out, I hear more birds than I see. Today featured the Red-winged blackbirds.
Song of the day: Los Lobos, Wicked Rain
