Hello from Sunday night 😀
I’m so excited to report that I saw the first bee of the season this week!
And the sun continued to shine that cold, brave light, but out at the river it still looked very wintry.
We had a brave alfresco lunch, seduced by the sunshine and the fluffy red patio blankets, we thought we might be a bit cool, but we were fine. And we love eating outside any chance we have.
There was also a large home and garden expo downtown, so C and I spent a couple nice hours mooching around.
There were the usual lovely home displays, but a large amount of the booths were really hard push, hard sell things people never knew they needed. To tell you the truth, it reminded us a little of that “as seen on television” push.
But there were some lovely bits too.
In the home…
and personal love department. Actually, C and I really loved these bracelets and bought ourselves one each.
At my local river park the Oemleria (Indian Plum) is blooming. This is always the first native plant which blooms and it blooms everywhere, all over the place, every park, every forest, every little bit of wild land, and, it’s a super good thing because it gives so much value to the first bees and the resident hummingbirds.
It’s been an incredibly mild winter and there is virtually no snow pack on the mountains. The rivers are pretty low and I worry that there will be water shortages later on in the year.
But for now the sun is still shining. 😀
