Morning Visitor

Lazuli Bunting

May the bluebird of happiness . . .

Unusual for us to see at the feeder.  The birds don't seem to mind the rain, but will someone please tell the weather gods to read the calendar?

Up Early

Time to drive back over "the hill" to the dog show. It's a short road-trip, only 1.5 hours, but a pretty one. Here are some commute pictures from yesterday morning.

Misty Morning

Still snow near Fish Lake and Lake of the Woods.

Cresting the summit.

Happy May Day!

Spring has finally come to a soggy Southern Oregon. We woke to a blue sky and puppies ready to play, never mind the frost on the ground. The pear blossoms are out in force, though nearly a month later than normal. It's one of the times of year I love living here.

This afternoon we're heading down to Ashland for a play: August: Osage County at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (not all Shakespeare all-the-time). It was one of the plays Ellie and Kathy reviewed after seeing it last week: Ellie loved it, though Kathy did not. Reportedly about a dysfunctional family in Oklahoma, I expect both to like it and to know some of those people.

We became festival members this year, and there are several more plays on our "must see" list.
