I was out in the back garden and heard quite a ruckus.
When I looked beneath the trees I noticed 4 male cardinals on the lower branches!
I had seen a female about 10 minutes earlier and I suspect the males were looking
for someone to nest with.
She had quite the array of suiters!
We had a few nice days after weeks of rain and grey skies.
It was pleasant to be able to spend the afternoon in the back garden planting pansies.
I even brought my phone out there for my work meeting one afternoon.
On Wednesday I went to my daughter’s house. A trip that normally takes about an hour in the car
only took about 30 minutes because there was no traffic.
We stayed outside and we stayed 6 feet away from one another.
He was so happy to see me and to show me the garden they are creating.
They have teepees made for peas and beans to climb up and he is very excited about that.
There was only one time when he ran toward me for a hug. I had to side step a little bit but he’s old
enough to understand that we couldn’t touch.
The folks next door to Verne’s house have three horses.
This one’s name is Hannah, which we think is quite a coincidence because
that is also my older daughter’s name.
So, Verne and I couldn’t hug each other but we could hug a tree together!
