Temperature – official from TV or Weather Underground, in degrees Fahrenheit
• High: 70
• Low : 43

Gardening and Yard Work
• worked on the lawn mower – found the air filter and took it apart and cleaned it then turned it upside down and put it back together (that way the air will be mostly going through the cleaner part, also cleared the vents into the air cleaner, looked at the blade and it looks like it has some big dents in it so I think it needs to be replaced instead of sharpened (I tried a little to get it off but will need something to stop the blade from turning)

Observations
• grass needs mowing
• all the day lilies in the back were trampled flat by the tree trimmers yesterday – they didn’t need to do that and it is upsetting
• the tree trimmers trimmed the pear tree in the back so that it is not bothering the wires – we expected and wanted them to do that

Butterflies
• cabbage white

Birds
• robins
• goldfinches
• woodpeckers – downy
• smalls
• black-capped chickadee
• ducks – the usual 2 plus I saw others flying several times
• cardinal – male

Other Animals
• squirrels
• chipmunk
• bumble bee (first I’ve seen this year)
