A Note for Grammarians
This is another shot of our garden, taken yesterday morning. In the foreground you can see lots of our plants, including our bluebells and grape hyacinths. In the background, beyond the fence -- and the reason I took the picture -- are the crabapple trees two houses away. They're blooming brilliantly right now. It's great that we get to enjoy them too!
I discovered a nifty web site yesterday morning. Some of you may have noticed that I seem to rather randomly capitalize the words in my post titles. Well, believe it or not, I really am trying to follow capitalization rules. I don't always get it right, but the effort is there. This web site will capitalize your titles for you, as well as offer the rules behind the verdict (capitalizing nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs, for example, but lower-casing articles, coordinating conjunctions and prepositions).
Pretty cool, if you're into that kind of thing.
The eurasian jays have been hanging around our yard a lot the last few days. They're really into our suet feeder. We've seen at least two of them, sometimes tussling over who's going to get to the food.
We're still running our heat. I keep thinking we'll be able to turn it off, but then we get a blast of chilly weather. It's been in the low 40's (F) at night -- and I've been insistently wearing shorts when I walk Olga in the morning, which is a rather chilling experience! It's spring, though, you know?
