I have that delicious tired feeling again. Worked out in the yard all day, one of those perfect days, temps in the 70's, blue sky, slight breeze, I call these kind of days "San Diego Days". Several years ago we took a trip to California, stayed a few days in San Diego before heading up to visit out son in Los Angeles. The days in San Diego were perfect weather every single day so when we experience a day like those, I refer to them lovingly as San Diego days.
Spent most of my time in the back yard today....still quite wet so clean-up is still not completed, still have a few spots to weed and rake, but with all the rain, and not too much sun, it's just too dang muddy. Hopefully by next week, all will be complete. Wow, I am usually quite done by now, sitting back and watching things grow...oh well. There is no controlling Mother Nature.
Look at that green bug....he is probably enjoying munching on my roses.
And speaking of roses, they are out in full masses....this is the arbor that surrounds my front walk.
Couldn't help it....had to get a picture of the one and only little baby cardinal. There are 2 more eggs in the nest, not sure what happened to the others, but one is moving and has a crack in it, so possibly another one is ready to enter the nest. Mama Cardinal was just having fits all day today as I worked in the backyard. I kept trying to re-assure her that I would not harm her little one, but somehow she just wasn't buying my promises.
A face only a mother could love!
Enjoy Saturday, hope it is gardening weather where you are. There is not much that satisfies my soul like a good day in the garden.

Until next time....
