In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day. No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them. ~Aldo Leopold

Dear heavens... it's SUNNY. It wasn't supposed to be, and even the weather websites say it's cloudy here, but they LIE. I don't know how long it will last, but I'm in heaven.

Sadly, I had to take back the Yankee Flipper yesterday. After I opened it and read the instructions, I found it doesn't work with red squirrels or chipmunks. That's pretty much all I have on my feeders, so it wasn't appropriate. Apparently the one they recommend for those particular rodents is the Yankee Dipper -- not as amusing, but hopefully will save my seed. Agway ordered it for me. Have I mentioned how much I love them?

Speaking of Agway, they have all their baby chicks in and we visited with them a little bit yesterday. Dakota kept sticking her nose into the cracks, and the chicks would peck her and she'd jerk away and then do it all over again. Dork dog.

So, today, I may play hookey at least a little bit. The weeds in my gardens are going to need baling soon if I don't get them pulled. Tomorrow is supposed to be rainy again -- which will put a bit of a damper on our Father's Day barbecue, but I'll make the most of the moment.

Have a great day!


You Are a Natural Beauty!

You're the kind of beauty that every guy dreams about...

One that looks good in the morning - without a stitch of makeup

That's doesn't mean you're a total hippie chic though

You have style, but for you, style is effortless

If that means I seldom wear make-up, then YES, they are right. *G*

So glad to hear you've got sunshine. Enjoy it. I'll bet you have a great time weeding.

I've got that same task on my agenda for this morning. A good time for introspection, isn't it? And the blueberry garden will look so much nicer when it's weeded and freshly mulched.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Hope you have some fun in the sun! It's pouring rain here, but I don't care. I'll be spending my day inside writing.

The sun came briefly but it is now raining.

Bummer about the Yankee Flipper; gotta love the name Yankee Dipper.

re quiz: I'm a natural beauty.

I'm a natural beauty too. What a shocker. *g*

Yay for the sun! Sorry to hear about the bird feeder. I hope the new one works. What exactly is an Agway?
Re the qiz, I am a Natural Beauty. Considering I don't wear make-up? It works. *G*

I hope you have a great day and enjoy that sun!
