The birds are nesting everywhere: my ficus, the tree house, the barn. The hummingbirds are back, and Kali is determined to catch one.
I feel like the garden is at a really good place this year, despite the fact that I didn't "put it to bed" the way I'd hoped to last Fall. Everything is planted, except for the little plants, which are going out this weekend. I've had so much more time to attend to it, that we are able to keep up with the weeding and mulching and mowing and planting.

climb and MUCH safer!
We ate our dinner out on the veranda this evening (hot dogs from our favorite itinerant vendor, who has returned from his winter hiatus.) JP started the mowing even before we returned home from Voice Lessons tonight, so the scent of fresh cut grass surrounded us.
I am looking forward to an extra day to spend together this weekend. We are easing ourselves into Summer Break, and it will be here before you know it!
