Its hard to believe after our very tough winter that spring has sprung, gone away and come back again for a few more days before the final blast of summer heat stays for good. We have an active garden at the moment with both wildflowers and cultivated flowers blooming. Birds are everywhere building nests and raising young and even a rubber boa came to visit.
The only bird that has a bad name around here is the beautiful Flicker and once again he has created a wonderful nesting site inside our chimney for this little sparrow who has proceeded to get stuck inside the drywall. Nothing a reciprocating saw wont fix and one more household repair job to add to list. We must love birds!
Now that a few things have been accomplished it is time to break out the kayaks for the first time this season and enjoy a day on the water. I was going to say rest and relaxation but who am I kidding, its a 7 mile paddle first time out. It should be interesting and I cant wait!
