Second Quarter Moon Waxing in Scorpio

Pluto Retrograde

Celtic Tree Month of Hawthorn

Sunny and pleasant

The lilacs are absolutely magnificent this year. I’ve never seen the heritage lilac so laden with blooms. The scent is amazing. I have my windows open, and every time there’s a breeze, it’s heaven.

I’m grateful we were here to see and smell them one last time, and that they’re so magnificent.

The grass is growing, and it’s exciting. No, I’m not being sarcastic. It’s actually exciting to watch the grass grow. There’s a difference, not just every day, but between morning and evening.

The pollen, however. . .my goodness. I sat outside for an hour the other day; when I came in, I had to shower to scrub off all the pollen. Then I had to scrub out the tub, because it was all in a lump at the bottom of the tub. Tessa, my black cat, sat in the window for a stretch; the pollen came through the screen, and she had gold highlights. I cleaned her off so she wouldn’t groom herself and ingest the pollen.

I need to run the little push mower over the front grass, which is starting to suffer from Vacant Lot Syndrome. I didn’t hire the lawn guy this year, since we’re leaving; besides, that little patch isn’t worth anyone’s time. Let’s hope the push mower can get it done.

I’m cleaning, sorting, and stacking the pots we’ve accumulated over the years. Boy, do we have a lot of pots. They’ll have to go in storage, if we move somewhere without a garage or a basement (which seems likely at this point).

Trying to get rid of the big lawn mower and the electric shovel, but no takers so far. I’ll just keep trying.

How are things blooming in your area?
