A couple of mockingbirds perched up in the tree that is putting out leaves.
Of course I couldn't resist the pretty annuals down the street at Ace Hardware. How could you when you're sitting at the red light and there just off the street the colors wave in the breeze? I swear my car just veers over there of it's own accord!
Speaking of cars, mine is a 2006, and all I've done thus far is buy two tires when I first moved to Tulsa, have the tires rotated, and have the oil changed when it says to. I have less than 39,000 miles on this Pathfinder.
My SIL is going to help me buy tires this weekend. He said the other two are goners.
I go into a place where I know next to nothing, and everything they tell me flies right over my head. And right into my pocket book.
Makes me nervous just to think of trying to decide which this and which that, and do I really need this and that RIGHT now. I am an easy mark, for I don't want to drive a vehicle where something could happen and strand me. My ankle would not thank me for that.
Last week, when I went out three days in a row "on a whim" put me back in the boot. I shall have to pace myself better.
The tulips have pretty much made their bow and are leaving the stage, making way for those plants underneath them in all the containers. So pretty while they lasted.
Now it's time to clip off the tired and sagging blooms. Hate to see them go, they put on such a wonderful performance.
Don't cut off the leaves.
"When tulips are done blooming you should dead head them and try to keep the leaves green as long as possible. Meaning water the tulips when soil is getting dry. After the leaves die back you can either choose to dig the bulbs up and divide them or keep them in the ground during the summer. We advise to dig them up at least once every three years."
Start concentrating on what is coming up now. Keep it watered, but don't over water. I know. Easier said than done.
And now you can watch spring's next act. It will be a beautiful one. While we all sit in the audience and watch the next performance.
Oh, I see a young male cardinal out on the fence, and now it's at the feeder. Got to go grab my camera!
I wonder if it will be like last year? I wait for the young male to bring a new companion around, worrying that he is lonely?
