The title says it all really. This week the weather has taken an undeniable turn for the warmer. Nights are still cool, 55 F or so, but the days are 75-80 F. No more sweatshirts on beach walks. Lots of sun. In fact, this is the first Easter weekend I can remember for many years without cold, grey, rainy skies. The weather is wonderful for the Mexican national pastime: camping on the beach over the 2 week Easter holiday!
Now to cover some lost ground. Back in mid-February, I was checking on my plants and discovered a swarm of bees nesting in my tulip tree. Here’s the photo:
I am not a lover of bees so sadly, I killed them all. Coincidentally, later that week, my dog Fiona was stung by many bees. Her face swelled up to double its normal size. Not to worry. Two days of benadryl and a shot of steroids quickly returned her to normal. Question is, did she learn anything? No, I was so put out over her condition, I didn’t even take a photo. Imagine that!
Right down the telephone pole lined road from my lot, sits a beautiful orchid tree. It was flowering at the end of February.
