the Sun! the Sun!
What wonders: warm sunshine. I'll water the bales this afternoon, in a break from editing SB's dissertation, and add the first of the organic all-nutrients mix; the bales are cooking warm and show a first sprout of their own.
Isabella is showing signs of her age; she's being cranky and her joints are trembling; a sign of arthritis pain so says the vet, who says she's remarkably healthy for a 20-year-old kitty.
The tomatillo (yellow flower) and the Padrone pepper (white flowers) are both beginning blossoms; the pepper already has a fruit set and nearly a centimeter long already!
it's awe-some to see the growing of things.
More strawberries from the windowbox on the laundry-shed roof.

2 weeks weather
Rain every day except for April 6, and Thursday April 13; both much-needed sunny days.
Today, Friday the 14th is no rain, but high clouds and windy.

A pair of mallards visited in the afternoon. They didn't mind Lise or I walking around and puttering and talking (she had a day off); but they flew off when Isabella the ancient kitty came out to investigate.

Weather this week
Raining on and off all week; I mowed the front yard last week, but the backyard grasses are taller than the cats! It'll all be good green mulch eventually.
