Dukes can’t handle his catnip…

The peepers are singing tonight!!! It’s such a beautiful spring sound that I look forward to every year.

I leaned out my bedroom window to take this night shot when I heard them. One of the benefits of curfew…less cars on the road!

Sunday bliss

Happy sweet sixteen birthday Shae!!!

Today was a gorgeous, sunny, almost warm, day. When I wasn’t playing with seeds and soil, I was stepping outside to take in the gorgeous weather.

The geese started coming back today. I saw a few ducks too. More red-winged blackbirds and European starlings are visiting too. But the best was stepping out this evening, around 5 pm, and hearing the Robin sing it’s good night song. I sure missed it!

This is the Robin that was singing so beautifully in the video clip.

The indoor planting is coming along. I’ve finished sowing the 6-8 week seeds. I purchased a heating mat this year. Can’t wait to see how it works and if it will make a difference. For now I have it on the second shelf for a variety of seeds that like warmer weather/soil. I’ve also set up the grow light I bought last year, on the bottom shelf.

I’m also experimenting with late winter/early spring seeding. Can’t wait to see how they do.

And how about tonight’s sky? It’s clear, the stars are popping and the moon is getting bigger!
