My Honeysuckle is leafing but no flowers yet. But the Redtip bushes have tons of lacy flowers covering each bush. They are so fragile looking.
Krogers left a bit ago and I had to order alot of things. Luckily I already had stewing beef, chicken and pork chops in the freezer.
But I am sitting here posting with a cup of coffee and some sour cream and Liption onion Dip next to my rocking chair. Unfortunately instead of avocados. It's been almost a year since I had chips & dips. Usually I have salsa and tortilla chips. I bought some of those as well.
But I have all the fixing to make refired beans and tacos or enchilidas. I have had a hankering. Maybe both.
I have fed all the birds, squirrels and now have two grain rats that are enjoying the nuts and seeds I put out for the birds and squirrels. My neighbors found a petrified large rat in one of their bureaus. They tried to say it was from my yard. But it's petrified state means it's been in there for a lonnng time.
I think I have mentioned the black cat that belongs to that guy and his kids across the street. They don't care that it roams everywhere. Lately it has been hanging under A's porch that faces my porch. But this morning I found it sleeping ontop of a huge basket seat - round with large openings on both sides. The cat was curled up on top asleep. Usually when it rains my porch is soaked but not this time. As soon as I opened the door it split.
Unfortunately this cat has been hanging out here - the house is raised 3 feet on the east side due to a hill the house is situated on. It also hangs out next door with the big yellow male cat J&W have it living in their shed. The shed is across the fence about where my back steps are.
I am not pleased over either, as the Yellow male cat hangs out under my house as well. As does the black cat. But both cats are very Lais-sez-faire about my yard and house. 8-( Oh well.
The hummers have been drinking the nector like they are starving. Well after the trip they just made I would think they are. Both feeders were empty this morning. Thus I am making nector every day.
The wildflowers are tiny and of every color. Charlie and I walk my path every day. The scents of the fresh grass and other grasses growing are amazing from the rain. All the trees are leafingout. THe oaks are still shedding their leaves and my yard is a lawn of so many shades of brown and gold and tan that walking though them just leaves paths behind. I have never seen so many leaves fall for so long. I've had the leaf carpet for since Dec & Jan. That is not a good sign. For they usually do their leaf drop in March and quickly releaf in early April. Witha leaf drop of over 3 or 4 months... it is so very odd.
There has been periodic rain, usually at night, with mist during the day. We have had fog in SA and alerts put out for the hillcountry. The driving up here can be pretty dangerous.
Well I need to have breakfast - chips & dip and Strawberries after. I have been buying strawberries in ever order.
Well I am going back to watch the rest of The Big Sleep with Bogart & Bacall. I have my 4 favorite movies by Bogart. I love Black & Whites. So I am going to go looking for a Bogart movie I don't have yet.
Well Happy Spring! And Mom "Happy Birthday!"
Love All Life; Thank You For Posting! :)
