Nothing technical here
This was the first really good weather of the season so far -- it was in the 80's yesterday and mid 70's today (26-28 C), mostly sunny except for one thunderstorm that rolled through. We had just mulched all of the gardens around the house, so now it smells like wet mulch, which is actually a pleasant smell. Nice being able to have the house open for a change. Did the spring clean on my home office this morning, I have a lot of plants in there and they seem to just spray sap all winter (really big ficus tree, the one I'm sitting in front of in that picture in the upper corner especially seems to "leak" sap from the leaves). So, lots of sticky floor space to clean up as I moved the bulk of the plants onto my porch.
(I know the picture is bad, but this is sort of what it looks like looking out my front porch)
Right off of my office at home is a small screened in porch. Perhaps my favorite place to be, "my end of the house". It was supposed to be a sun room, but I took it over for work. Fortunately it is surrounded by alot of trees and is on the north end of the house (note to architects, when designing sun rooms, southern exposures in the hemisphere I live it work best). So, even though it has lots of windows, there is very little direct sun (which would sort of ruin the whole computer experience). But lots of nice views.
From the windows I have seen many deer, fox, and once a baby bear was to be spotted. Lots of wildlife. I have a bird feeder right off of the porch and there are always a ton of birds out there (and squirrels, that is a constant battle, I think I finally won though -- they haven't been able to get to the feeder for a while now. Human 1, Squirrels 0, but I'm sure they will be back for a rematch, they are just planning now).
Everything is growing like crazy now. I don't live in town, I live out a ways - and have three acres. 2 acres of trees and 1 of grass to cut. My neighbor on one side has 24 acres (it used to be a farm, they have the old farm house and surrounding propertly). Needless to say it is very "green". He hasn't been running the tractor for a while so the field he has is very overgrown, I prefer it that way.So, right now -- everything looks and smells "clean".
A friend of mine once said to me "I love it after the rain, the world smells like it just had a bath". And so it does... Anyway, hope everyone enjoys the long weekend if you have it -- memorial day and all.
