06:55, 57F. fog out in pasture. dawn chorus, roosters. pale sunrise. found a tick when I was showering last night. not a good sign. already had red bugs.. with this warm weather so soon, we might have a horrendous buggy summer.
08:00, 63F. the sunlight came in the east window of the house, through the door, across the hall into the dining room where I was answering email, and reflected off the west window.. 3 deer resting under the big cabbage palm in the cactus field.
11:20 - on my way to CK with 2 feedbags of sheep manure for the memorial magnolia that was planted today at the lab in honor of our dear friend and administrative assistant. 2 red-shouldered hawks playing tag over a pasture. medium tide at CK.
low to mid- 70's. mostly cloudy. wind, S, 10 knts. water choppy. tide coming in.
16:00, high tide and a big flock of ducks by #4 bridge. got 5 bales of hay that looked dry from the hay guy. he was all dirty and sweaty and had been planting peas. we need rain.
17:00, 82F at the farm. guard dog in heat. reddog howling. had to move the dogs around. unloaded hay.
20:10, 73F, overcast. no moon, stars or planets. dogs all barking..

ticks and redbugs! I hate them!! one reason I work out on the water - only have to deal with no-see-ums. have heard the same thing about guineas but my dogs would chase them off..

ticks are the very worse things of summer in my opinion. we have lots of them around here, the really horrible ones--those little seed ticks. I like you think its going to be a very buggy summer because we had no really hard freeze here this past winter. maybe we should think of getting a few guineas for the yard, i understand they really like ticks.
enjoy your day
