The Gold Finches finally showed up. They are a little scruffy looking. The males molt from the drab yellow/olive color to the beautiful sunshine yellow of summer.
So far I have only seen the males.
They frequent the thistle seed in the bag feeder. Oh my.. the last few days have been almost summer like. 70 degrees is a perfect temperature..it could stay 70 degrees all summer as far as I am concerned.
I put out some garden ornaments and the rain gauge the other day. It is almost time to drag out the patio furniture!
Chance and I have started to make evening trips. He loves the evening rides and so do I.
Sunset is at 8:21 PM. In the Spring I am always surprised how fast the sun sneaks north of us to set.
I have many projects to finish up..these last few days I have of complete freedom are going way too fast. Five more days of freedom. I am busy watching the birds and the golden sunsets so some things are just going to have to wait until Fall. May 1st I am going back to work.
You all should be thinking about bringing in the May with May Baskets! I have all my material for the baskets sitting on my desk..perhaps today I will get around to it! I love the old tradition of making and filling May Baskets. Haven’t heard of May Day Baskets? Stay tuned:)
