This was Romeo's second day out of his enclosure and he followed us all over the yard. He even let me pet him and Heather was quick to get a picture.
Roo, the rooster, was out in the yard at the same time as Romeo. They did have one altercation, but I was able to push Roo away with the handle of a rake. Once separated, they went their separate ways and spent the rest of the day exploring the pine forest and digging for bugs.
Heather has a very small tree that has just bloomed with small purple flowers. She says it is a California lilac, but I have never seen a tree/blossom like this before. Has anyone else?
About two weeks ago I posted a picture of the grape vine that grows up the post of the porch on the Wee Mansion. It was just starting to sprout new leaves, and here is how it looked then.
And here is how it looks today.
There really are tiny bunches of grapes, but you really have to look hard to see them.
Friday morning Heather and I put on the second coat of paint on the walls of the dining room. After lunch Simone came over to help with the painting. We primed the walls and ceiling of the entry way, the trim around the front door, and the wall going up the stairway. Thanks Simone!
Tomorrow I think we are going to concentrate on getting all the trim around windows and doors done, and maybe even paint some doors, too.
