Oh What a Beautiful Morning ...

In weather like this I could walk forever, it's in the 70's with a light breeze and skies so blue they look phony.  We walked down to the bridge that goes over the lagoon and as we were looking around I heard a sound like a very unhappy bull frog and asked Mac if he had heard it.  He said it wasn't a frog, and right about then two big, blue herons flew up in front of us.   At first I thought it might be some kind of mating ritual, but it quickly became apparent that it was a territorial issue.  One finally flew off and the other came to rest in a tree just above us and I tried to get a picture, but some dogs began barking and I had to settle for a picture of it flying across the lagoon instead.
Returning to our house I saw that the lilies were blooming, just in time for Easter, and I have a whole wall of red roses.  They, the roses,  had not done well last year and Mac pruned them back severely so they look  much better!
Some  raccoons have discovered the canister of birdseed we keep on the back deck and have been opening it and having a bit of a feast late at night.    Mac has a motion-activated camera and is going to set it up tonight and see if he can catch them in the act.
On the armadillo issue, the moth balls have worked and I now have a lovely, stinky, green lawn.

Off to the garden to enjoy more of this weather.
