Hello All,

That wind and cool temperatures, brrrr! It’s time to get the lawn raked up from all the branches and leftover leaves. I dread this mess. Get the sand off the lawn, and there is plenty. Oh well. I have plenty of birds coming to the feeders. A gray squirrel that wants to sit in the window feeder every chance it can. The leaves are budding out fast,  and a few daffodils in places. Soon I can look for dandelion greens.
