The small brown snakes were out sunning on the front rocks, and I saw a tiny grey grasshopper in the garden

This morning 's walk about : 60 cloudy and still

I saw my first honey bee on the purple flowers of the nasty creeping charlie .....I guess it is good for something Glare

Two rabbits one over the hill another near the compost . I guess the compost rabbit is the one that trimmed the blackberry bushes, they are all about 6'' now.

The golden finches are turning color and there is a lot of fighting going on at the feeders.


Drug a couple carpets out to the pasture to kill grass for planting , the cardboard did not stay in place so only one good space to plant as of now.
