I have spent more time outside this year than I ever have. It might only be in our back garden but it is outside.
Should have kept quiet. Storms and tornado watch today
Hopefully it will pass by without causing damage. So no garden time today

But it is when we get into tornado season.

Nice but high winds today. My cherry tree is bare of blossom now and the ground looks like snow.

Keeping a close eye on the fruit trees because I don't want to lose blossom.....

That's a shame, one of my favorite parts of spring is the cherry blossom. I love all flowering fruit trees, really. Pear, crabapple, cherry, whatever, they're all lovely.

We had quite a nice weekend, the yard was full of birds again on Saturday. I wish I'd taken a picture of them before they flew off but we had two Northern Flickers in the yard looking for bugs. Not sure if they are the same ones that were drumming on our gutters a couple of years back but they're lovely birds and it was nice to see them again. For reference (not my pic though):



Still quite nice today, too. Started out in the 30s, but now sunny, and in the 50s on the way to 60. Can't complain at all.

Woodpeckers are generally quite nicely colored, but I always liked these ones when we first realized what it was making that noise on our roof a few years back. Saturday was the first time I saw them in person since then though, which was a nice surprise in among the usual Robins. Saw my first Cardinal of the year too

we saw quite a lot of cardinals in the garden when we lived in NJ. Also had a woodpecker, who I thought looked rather nice with his light grey feathers and bright red head, until he started knocking chunks out of the side of the house.

Luckily the woodpeckers only ever drummed on the gutters, or the metal covering for the 'chimney' leading out from our furnace. There was one tiny one drumming on our door frame, but it was all the territorial stuff, not looking for food, which might have been why they were tearing chunks out of your house.

Cardinals are common enough round here, but every so often the Blue Jays scare them all away.

Rain, possibly turning into rain and snow. Snow likely tonight. This is just BS weather to go with all the rest of the crap going on at the moment.
