Anyway, finished the one curb and will finish the other in the morning. I hope this one will withstand my husband's bringing his wide trailer in behind his pickup. That'll be the acid test. He visits less frequently these days, like twice a year, so one can only hope.
When I get the other curb done I plan to quit on special projects for a while, and just do regular maintenance. Time to enjoy spring. Birders are already starting to visit. Today I had two parties, one from Canada; the other from Kansas. I do get birders year-round, just more in spring. It's funny, I used to think that spring migration (mid-April to mid-May) was the only fun birding time at CMO. Now I think it's awesome from April through December. Especially since I'm into butterflies now, too. Just realized, in Feb-Mar this year I had 4 lifer butterfly species (Henry's Elfin, Great Purple Hairstreak, TX Powdered-Skipper, and Eastern Tailed-Blue). I may have to extend the awesome time frame.
Speaking of butterflies, I photographed this Northern Cloudywing today. Brian says it's early in the year for this species. Maybe global warming.
Here is a really adorable tiny flower. I don't know what it is yet, though.
