Saw a rose-breasted grosbeak on the feeder the other evening & this morning on the dog walk we caught a glimpse of a pileated woodpecker flashing overhead, then a moment later heard its wiry call. Cool spring day. This afternoon I weeded the area at the top of the driveway & tghen raked in one of those wildflower seed mixtures, then I edged a flowerbed out back with stones & Carole mulched it with bark. I had our neighbor Dean, who has a gravel pit on his place up the hill, bring me a couple of loads of stones & sand last week, which I'll be using to edge beds & cover walkways. Cost me all of sixty dollars. Dean loves using his backhoe & dump truck. Me, I'm looking forward to a summer of yard work & gardening while teaching my online summer course from the comfort of my living room.
