not so good
sat 23 may 2015

May is my birthday month, but a couple things have happened and I'm a little bit sad.

Our killdeer nest -- which was in the middle of our community garden plot -- got raided by a predator, who ate ½ the eggs around the 8th of May and the other ½ on the 17th. Evidence of the last crime was a bit bloody, and it really upset me. And now, thinking about our garden makes me sad... Stuff was being planted and weeded all around the nest while we had eggs. But now there's this big empty space that we've been working around since they started the nest...

And this weekend, I have a lot of homework that I brought from my day job. bleh, so much for the three day weekend. Having extra stuff that must be done forces me to be more organized with my time. So other stuff is getting done... unfortunately it's not very interesting stuff.

But all I need to do is go for a walk and life starts looking better. There are ducklings...

And there are pretty flowers... purple rhododendron

And the lupines are starting to bloom. And the swallows are flying. And the garden is starting to grow.
