Ladybirds Everywhere!

Ladybirds Everywhere!, originally uploaded by _saturnine.

Bought a push lawnmower today (as opposed to an electric one) and got to beating the lawn and the weeds back in the garden. Obstacles came in the way of a million ladybirds, most of whom I tried to move out of the way. I don't *think* I killed any of them.

Friday Tree Trimming

Waiting for some epic packages today, both with UPS. So I'm listening very carefully for the sound of the 24lb one hitting the front door.

Thursday Morning

Mornings have been cold (less than 10 degrees), so to avoid putting the heating on, I sit in bed for an hour. Then it was outside for the daily stroll around the back yard - things are growing, and I think it must be mating season for the birds, judging by the racket they're making. Good times.

Two sides of the same coin

 I was sat in the bathroom, attempting to trim my hair (less disastrous than I expected), when I heard the neighbourhood hawks right outside. Grabbed my camera, and finally took a clear enough picture of one them to identify them as Red Shouldered Hawks. If only I had a telescopic lens!

Red Shouldered Hawk?
