May has been a roller coaster so far. It has been hot – in the 80’s and tonight we are going to have a freeze. It has been a very active season in the garden. Bluebirds are nesting in their houses, robins in the cedar outside my window, and Carolina wrens in a plant on the porch. The orioles have returned for their grape jelly treats and hummingbirds entertain us all day long. A fox has been hunting daily (she has 5 kits nearby).
