early morning blackbird

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


morning blossom

Yesterday’s Phenology: Largely warm and steamy. 80s? Sunny? Waiting on the next thunderstorm, which I believe is scheduled to arrive in an hour or two.

Song of the day: Los Lobos, Saint Behind the Glass


off they go…

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


another morning blossom

Yesterday’s Phenology: 89 degrees. Need I say more? Sunny and unpleasantly warm. What can you do? It’s June. A few small passing rain showers in the evening, didn’t seem to cool things off much.

Song of the day: Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band/With a Little Help from My Friends


morning flight

Yesterday’s Phenology: Another nice rainy day, until the afternoon, when it stopped raining, and then the sun peeked out a bit. Nice to get the rain. Noticed a ruckus up in the trees as I walked Flynn in the late afternoon, birds, excited, and then a hawk flew out of a spruce and away.

Song of the Day: Spencer Davis Group, Gimme Some Lovin’


morning commute

Yesterday’s Phenology: Mostly a perfect day, temp in the 60s, sunny, beautiful. Only problem was the gusty wind coming out of the west, during my bike ride in particular. Still great time of year for birdwatching, though that won’t last much longer, as things are greening up. Saw a pair of kingfishers at the dogpark this morning. Heard a lot of cardinals and flickers, but saw nary a flicker, not a one.

Song of the day: Paul Kantner, Grace Slick, Sunfighter


morning moon shine, fresh snow

Yesterday’s Phenology: mid 60s and sunny. Lots of robins observed. Gangs of them. Good day to get the bike out and sit outside and drink offee at one of our fine local coffee shops. Tulips are just starting to come up, and snow drops are still up. They’ve lasted a long time!

Song of the day: Shawn Phillips, Moonshine
