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


early morning blooms

Yesterday’s Phenology: More typical late-spring weather returns: sunny and I think 75 today. Fortunately I worked through most of that, and didn’t have to deal with the glare and the heat of the day. A cooler evening, very suitable for dog-walking and sitting-out-side-beer-drinking.

Song of the day: Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong, Summertime


one last spring sunrise

Yesterday’s Phenology: A bit of a change of pace: it was sunny all day. We had something akin to snow-blindness. The sun: it’s very bright. We seized the opportunity presented by sun and a day off of work, and went to the dog park, where the water was high, and getting higher. Not as many dogs, it being a Monday, but pleasant none the less. Unidentified birds up in the trees, hiding behind leaves. It stayed cool throughout the day, in the 60s, with a bit of a breeze. A pretty nice day.

Song of the day: Paul Simon, Was a Sunny Day


early morning commute

Yesterday’s Phenology: A cool and overcast day. Have I mentioned that robins are everywhere? And cardinals? And that the Red-winged blackbirds are singing up a storm? I wonder where these guys spend their winters? This is prime birdwatching season, before all the leaves come out. Birds are on display.

Song of the day: Charlie Parker Quintet at Birdland, Ornithology
