Here is a pic of us during our Atlanta reunion. “Johanna-lea” and I didn’t make it to the Botanical Garden, but her description of it made me put it on a list for a future trip.
Here in Ohio we just went through a spate of strong thunderstorms and it is now very humid (that cold front didn’t give us the pleasant weather promised!). So now I’ve got Georgia on my mind;) Hot and sticky!
Hoed out some of the garden before the storms, the weeds grew like weeds heh-heh. Got the kids to mow the lawns(I run the big tractor mower- they do the small ones.)
Summer has set in.
I’m also seeing some dead starlings, etc. I don’t know if this is from the cats or whether West Nile is raising it’s ugly head again. I hear about the Swine flu (Ohio doctors are finding the Health Dept is not reporting all the cases because it saves money on testing -according to latest news story), but nothing yet on the West Nile virus. It took a toll on the bird population- especially Blue Jays. This year was the first I had seen them in awhile. That was late winter spring- none are resident here now.
