Yesterday’s Phenology: Another Sunny and overly-warm day. Just for the record, June was 2.4 degrees warmer than average. However, yesterday, nice morning for a dog walk, in the shade of the tall river trees. Got up to 81 during the afternoon. Not so bad, I guess.

Song of the day: the Grateful Dead, U.S. Blues



springtime and blackbird

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


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


arctic willow after the rain

Yesterday’s Phenology: It was cooler and cloudy in the morning, perhaps in the 70s. The big thunderstorm hit at about 9 or so… just as we were making our way back to the car at the dog park. It got very very dark, and it rained very very hard, and we got to the car just as the hail started. It rained much of the morning, then was cloudy and cooler and much nice through the rest of the day, with periods of rain, temps in the 60s and 70s. Should green things up a bit.

Song of the day: Gene Kelly, Singin’ in the Rain
