around the neighborhood

The world is covered in a soft yellow green haze, with emphasis under maple trees at the moment. I am highly allergic to tree pollen so this is the worst time of the year for me. But ... but ... it's spring and things are blooming so how can I hate it?!

The guy a few streets over has added two bee hives to his growing little farmstead. Chickens in the backyard and a moving pen in the front. AND NOW, two hives on top of his garage. My yard has been seeing fewer and fewer honey bees and many more bumblers in the last couple of years, I'll have to keep an eye out for the honey bees.

The sun is shining and it is warm and breezy outside. I just spent all day at school (underground - no windows) grading things that had piled up because of my sojourn in the hospital. I am all caught up hurrah! Exam week next week and then just one week of meetings and I am off until mid-August.
