It is Saturday, the sun is out, the shin-high grass is soggy, and I think the voles still live here. Not as many, thanks to the cats feasting on the all you can eat buffet I opened for them, but still some. As soon as it's dry enough I will be out mowing down the grass again and sprinkling more blood.
Until then, I want to share my new umbrella with you! It is a half umbrella and I have a metal stand with feet so it won't mark up the deck. It comes off the bottom half of the pole easily so I can put it away when I'm not using it.
I also drew in my owl this morning, now to paint it. I combined a screech owl and a saw-whet from the pictures in my 1969 Funk & Wagnall's Standard Reference Encyclopedia. My sister's and I learned to play rummy from those books, no one could beat us.
Dishes are done, and I'm going to check the grass again. Have fun out there.
