Early start this morning. I'm hoping the farmer neighbor doesn't mow the side of the road before tomorrow. I'm headed into the office today, but want to dig up a part of the daisy when I get home this evening.
It was great walking weather - cool, but sunny. As I walked down the road, I heard the baby birds rustling in the ditch along the road - frogs, baby rabbits, baby wrens, maybe even meadowlarks. Could not see what was there, grass was so long. Hope all the critters will survive a mowing.
Walking by the canal, I heard a lot of splashing. The bank was pretty steep and without my glasses, I had to wait until the splashing got closer. At first I thought it was beavers. Then I saw some dorsal fins - in my head, I could hear the theme song from "Jaws". There were several rings of splashing. I then thought there were also snakes or eels because I could see a beastie zigzagging in the water. Finally I saw a couple of fish heads. There were at least 6 schools of fish feeding - probably carp. But it did add to the excitement of the walk.
Back home, the iris are starting to bud and will soon be blooming.
This really is truly a lovely way to start the day!
