This morning, headed down the sidewalk past Capitol Square from the bus stop, I was composing a post about the effects of this long, cold winter on the camellias planted there when there was a rustle and a heavy thump on the other side of an azalea. I glanced in that direction and then came to a dead stop: it was a big bird. Not one of the hawks that hunt in the park, either - it was one of the peregrine falcons who live in downtown. I'd never seen one in person, but they're popular webcam subjects because they like to nest on the ledges outside of upper floor windows in the office buildings downtown. I gazed, and it gazed back, and then since I knew there was someone coming down the sidewalk a ways behind me I went on, leaving the falcon to continue with whatever it was doing in the underbrush undisturbed.

And the camellias? Hardly even popping out of bud. No color showing at all. On March 3. This week, we're expected to be near 70 degrees on Wednesday...and there'll be 1-3 more inches of snow on Thursday. ::whines::

We are also supposed to get some MORE snow - 3-5" with temps in the 40s the day after. Sigh

I have a bit more than half a woodshed available - and will probably use it before this WINTER is over - another sigh
