In comes May! We didn't have much in the way of April showers, I went two full weeks without any rain at all!
But fortunately, thanks to the garden hose, my plants got the water they needed, and my patio is now covered with
day lilies, calla lilies, twining morning glories, and roses. It is a beautiful place to sit. Nearly every day after
work I spend time sitting out there enjoying the view of the flowers and birds at the feeder. My bluebird pair raised
a clutch, but then did not return for a second one. Closer inspection found a grey rat snake had taken up residence
inside the dead tree the birdhouse was mounted on! I don't blame them for moving out! I got a pole, a baffle, moved
the birdhouse, and took down the dead trunk remnant. It wasn't very big, only about as tall as I am, and completely
rotten inside so it likely would have fallen over on its own soon anyway. As of this morning, a pair was already
inspecting the house in its new location!
I also had the water oak tree removed that dropped its upper portion on my house in Hurricane Michael. It was the
tree that still posed the highest threat to the house because it hung over the house and ALL of the tree's weight was
towards the house. I feel better with it gone!
With the pandemic and the predictable change in habits over the past couple of years, we seem to have gotten into the
habit of staying home. I understand that completely. I love my home and thoroughly enjoy the time I spend there, I realize
I could easily become a reclusive hermit! While that may be something in my future, I don't think it is something I want
right now. But it is rapidly getting too hot to do much outside walking unless we start really early, several people are
(understandably) still concerned about dining in enclosed spaces, and things like movies or escape rooms seem to be unlikely
to draw much attendance right now. I welcome any suggestion y'all may have for activities we could enjoy as a group. To start
the ball rolling, I will tell you something I am doing this month and if it sounds like something you would enjoy, make a
reservation and join me! Curious? Check the calendar for full details.
We have our monthly dinner set for Vertigo Burgers, they have outside seating, and we have been there a couple of times
before. Yummy food! I hope many of you can make it to the dinner this month and perhaps the other event as well!
