06:50, 56F, foggy. dawn chorus with roosters, amazing! rosy to the east. overslept..
09:00, high tide going out in CK. low 70's, slight breeze from N. sunny. late to church. blamed the rooster. none of us here at the farm have adjusted to dst.
11:00, still high tide. ducks and herons. heading for fowler's bluff via 347 for lunch at the treasure camp cafe. a pair of swallow-tail kites hunting the tops of pine trees. pileated woodpecker flew over the truck. not much wildlife around in the middle of the day. suwannee river beautiful and greening up. pleasant to sit next to it and eat an oyster po'boy.. children playing on a dock. made me smile and remember when I was a child playing on a dock.
12:50, 86F at the farm. sunny. wrapped up the plants in the yard, put the yard dogs in the pen, and let the sheep in again.
17:40, 77F. lazy sunday afternoon. read paper, answered e-mails, took a nap with the cat. when I woke up the sheep had gone back to their barn and were loafing and chewing their cud; the guard dog was snoozing in the horse barn. I let the yard dogs out of the pen. wisteria blooming all over now - up in the oaks, on the back chicken pen, in the bamboo.. pecans putting out new green leaves. sheep did a good job of mowing.
20:45, 68F, misty. stars out. venus and jupiter have finished their conjunction and are slowly moving apart. venus is the brighter of the two. mars almost overhead and very orange.
