|We have no room left in our yard for trees but I'm fortunate that my neighbors have plum trees and the fragrance wafts over to Red Oak House|
In my yard today, I've mowed and then planted some flowers, marveling at the miracle of the tiny seeds that will hopefully sprout and bring us beauty and food. My other tool of the day is the dandelion digger. Although I have a laptop, wifi, a Zen notepad, a big screen TV, an Apple TV device, and a Google Pixel phone, the tool of choice for digging dandelions and other weeds is this as shown below -- 16th century technology that gets the job done. Yes, I do know the critical role that dandelions play for pollinators, but I assure you my neighbors provide them with plenty -- and then there are the aforementioned blooming trees.

Leonardo da Vinci said the average human being "looks without seeing, listens without hearing, touches without feeling eats without tasting, moves without physical awareness, inhales without awareness of odor or fragrance, and talks without thinking." Strive to be above average.
Here's the postal delivery person with today's mail and magazines. My husband has called to alert me that he is feeding us walleye freshly caught in the Missouri River this morning. What an amazing world we live in!
