The live oaks in our yard drop there leaves in very early spring then follow that with “bloom” which is a brown flower kind of thing that falls everywhere and fills up the gutters. And then there’s pollen that turns everything green and a bit of mildew thrown in here and there. As soon as the bloom is over, we start scrubbing and pressure washing everything outside. Along with pulling weeds that are loving all the rain and sunshine we’ve had. So that’s what we’ve been doing during this beautiful spring week. But we’re just about done.
We did get out one morning to go kayaking right out our back door with a group of neighbors. Next week we’re back to our regular adventures–maybe I’ll have something to write about for the Chronicle!
