Yesterday’s Phenology: Big storms last night, everywhere around here but not here. Here the lawns are turning brown. We had a little thunder last night, and a little wind, and a little rain. Not much. We could use some rain.

Song of the Day, Chuck Berry, Maybellene

Yesterday’s Phenology: Well, let’s see. Sunny in the early morning, then clouded over a bit, then sunny again, and a little warmer, then breezy (from the west, as I biked west) and sunny, and then cloudy and thunderstorm, and then cooler, and partly cloudy, and maybe more rain? Lots of daisy’s blooming in the yard, and large clumps of green grapes hand from our pergola. Baby cucumbers in the garden, and it looks like raspberries are on their way too.

Song of the day: Keith Michell, Irma la Douce, The Wreck of a Mec

Yesterday’s Phenology: A cloudy day that looked like it intended to rain, but hasn’t yet. Flickers in the trees are pecking away, looking for food, I suppose. Or perhaps just something to do.

Yesterday’s Phenology: The day started out dark and gray. Then the sun came out and brightened things up a bit. Temps got up in the 50s, and it seemed like a nice March day. Vs of geese are seen flying over, headed towards the river. It always cheers me up to see them up there, and reminds me of the Wonderful Adventures of Nils.

Song of the day: Ides of March, Vehicle

Yesterday’s Phenology: Downright balmy. It’s just kept getting warmer and warmer, until now it’s all the way up to 24.  We also had a bit of snow throughout the day, which was fairly pretty as it was coming down but made for a very long commute home, as the roads were covered with mush, making for tenuous footing and worse driving than usual.
But, the snow also showed a lot of nice rabbit tracks around the pond. Invisible rabbits. You never see them, but they are there.

Song of the Day: Graham Nash, Military Madness

Their selection of giraffes was particularly good for a small town whatzit shop.

Yesterday’s Phenology: coolish and cloudyish. Spotted one bright red tree on my drive home from work. Early adopter. 60% chance of t-storms tonight, but was 80% chance a few hours ago, so odds are we stay dry, I think. Generally, an unremarkable day, pheonology-wise. Today I will pay more attention.
