Some Ugly Irises. 5.23.2020
I'm a little old lady who loves to sleep. Sometimes, I go to bed by 10:00 PM and up by noon the next day. It takes about an hour to do my morning house chores and I spend an hour or so in the greenhouse and yard. Dominic gets a brush and a rub while I watch my favorite homesteading program on the internet. When the weather is hot, I am in after a quick inspection of the greenhouse. With an hour or so nap in the afternoon, I am ready to cook dinner and clean up the kitchen before bedtime. Doesn't sound interesting, does it! But it suits me just fine.
The temperatures moderated to 60-70°F daytime highs with clear blue skies. We had a frost last week but the greenhouse was fine.
The deer ate all of Laura's Petunia blossoms on the deck; the hanging baskets are gorgeous. For some reason, they haven't touched my basil plants. I am trying to lure them into the meadow where I can watch them out my bedroom window. The wild turkeys discovered my bird feeding station and I watch them twice a day as they go on their hunt for food.
Corn was good, but a little tough.
Re sleep schedules, I get 8 hrs, usually from about 11 PM to 7 AM, plus a 15 ' nap after lunch. I'm pretty regular. Going on trips really mess me up.
I saw--and tried to photograph--a solution to my "critter" problems. A red tail hawk was sitting on a birdhouse scanning the yard for a potential meal. My picture didn't turn out for several reasons.
Nice "taters and maters", Daniel!
We'll eat the corn tonight, & hopefully it has good flavour.
When do you get up, Randy? I'm always up at 3 AM, except in the winter. I've always been a morning person. I like to get out before the sun. That way, I don't have to wear sunglasses or a hat. I've never yet found a comfortable hat. Sunglasses are almost as bad.
It's also nice to go shopping before the crowds.
But I get so tired of messing with my sleep patterns, I'm thinking of getting up at the same time in the winter as well.
You're up early, Spud!
Interesting map, Joan. No wonder I had so many cut worms. I don't see any in Rick's corn. Nice.
Oh! Delicious looking corn, Patricia.
Wussuh mattuh Joan, you don't eat tall grass? Hahahaha.
Perfect corn ears, Patricia and Rick! All I got was tall grass.

southern overwintering sites."
It looks as though you are in the path of the black cutworm migratory pattern, Randy!
