Verdant in May

(May 28 1:58 p.m.)

Living out in the woods (not quite, but bear with me), we’re pretty close to nature.  Lots of bugs during the summer, but also lots of fresh air— nice and “inviting” for a walk… when it’s not too hot.

Today, it only entered 60s Fahrenheit. …I don’t want summer, yet.

(May 28 1:58 p.m.)

Entering late spring, the leaves have gotten large.

(May 28 1:59 p.m.)

Even the leaves on the “porch plant” are full.

Among the late-spring activities around here, some trees were cut down.  Down the road, a man yelled timber, and a woman, barely visible in the photo (click any photo to enlarge), yelled back about the house.  Yes, chop away from the house.  (And it’s a good idea to use a rope.)  It’s the time where it becomes more apparent that limbs, growing fast, may need to be cut to avoid potential damage— not just falling on lines, notably during later seasons (*cough* ice storm *cough*), but on private property, parked cars, etc.  Humanity needs trees, but it’s all necessary.  When weather gets bad, tree branches can be inside your house.

Not a pretty sight. (May 26 4:10 p.m.)

…And the rose plant is getting too tall.  It hit the ceiling of the window, and needs supporting books removed.  The top bulb won’t be able to develop properly unless I keep removing books.  Which means it’ll be receiving less light for its height.  Sadly, it’s only getting light from the window.

I haven’t been away from the house since last posting.  It would be a good idea to get off the property…. see a park, a movie…

(May 15 1:59 p.m.)

…the beach.  Sorry, not much green.

(May 15 2:02 p.m.)

I’m sure the Crescent Beach park greens are fuller now.  So much must be in full bloom, including new flowers.  Dandelion puffs were in the air recently.

(May 15 2:10 p.m.)

Enough old photos.  It’s settled; I need to get out there.

Until next time…
