Stan & Joyce Orchard
Trying to figure it out since 1975.
Many patches of their winter coats scattered around as I mow. Love this time of year.
Our little garden friend seems greener than normal these days.
As we put more plants out, these little critters abound.
Well, maybe not a trillion but compared to normal years, it’s a lot. We’re lucky to see one trillium in the spring. This year we found an abundance along our road. Spotted this morning on our 1.5 mile walk.
A nice little sky show about 45 minutes before sunrise this morning.
These three have been hanging around our place for weeks. Never far away. We encountered them again this morning on our one mile walk. We did see one human today, a most infrequent sight these days.
On March 22, 1975 in Ketchikan, AK I was invited to dinner at the KTKN Program Director’s home. New in town, just started five days earlier, his wife served crab louie and asked her neighbor to join us. My life would never be the same. One of the crab claws is still in her curio cabinet.
Today we chose the flat Cedar River Trail at Landsburg. Went 2.6 miles and we’re both bushed, but happy to be able to do it. Encountered maybe a dozen other souls, mostly runners, and we all kept our distance. It’s a new world.
