But I got to see two springly things: a bee and a butterfly, both of which visited the back porch while I was sitting there basking in the warmth and being alarmed by burgeoning of the weeds. I'm going to have to do a lot of foxtail pulling before the ground gets dryer. They are difficult to dislodge from dry ground, but should be fairly easy if I get to them tomorrow. The problem is my back doesn't really want me to be getting down on the ground to yank weeds. My joints tend to agree.
It has cooled off quite rapidly, though it won't be going below fifty degrees tonight. I could bundle up and listen to the frigs from the back porch, but even one day of mild temperatures has made me more sensitive to the cold, so I'm going to stay in and watch television instead. I had fresh air this afternoon anyway.
