art, plants & maine coon cats

this evening

Was eating dinner with Cami at Sultan's when something moved in the sky, big. A great blue heron was flying east. I love watching them fly because they are so improbable. I'd seen a pair of green herons near the zoo a couple of weeks ago but this is the first great blue this year. Cami made a reference to the dog from Up and "squirrel". She remarked that with me it was big flying things. I had stopped in mid sentence to watch it fly by you see.

Drove through the fringes of MSU on the way home and noticed that the trees are waking up. MSU seems to have it's own micro-climate and is a few days earlier than the rest of the area (I swear, raises hand) but the crab apples and willows are definitely doing something.

It is a nasty, damp cold with wind out there and this to continue all weekend. Yuck, I was spoiled by last weekend. Is it Spring yet?
