No one bothers the columbine, which is getting close to bloom now. A few more sunny days and we might get some actual flowers! Not as many hummingbirds this year but the bees seem to be plentiful and that is a positive sign. They have been in decline for several years now, we haven't harvested honey for a few years. Have any of you seen the movie Ulee's Gold? It is a so so movie but the part that shows the raising of bees and harvesting honey is quite fascinating and worth watching for that alone.
The new Greg Brown album, Freak Flag is out, I have been listening to it a lot and enjoying it more with each listen. He is one of the best songwriters out there, in my opinion, right up there with Bob Dylan. I have one of his songs in my playlist, you might have heard it. If you enjoy Poet Game at all, you might want to look into more of his music. I'll send you some if you ask.
Hope you are all enjoying your spring. Be well.
