The weather has turned freakishly warm again and everyone has hurried outside to take advantage of the sunshine and the holiday weekend. It seemed like as Good a Friday as any to launch the guerrilla stewardship season at Beechwood, so I brought in my little container of necessaries to leave in the equipment box. Now I'm well supplied with work gloves, trowels, buckets, garbage bags, sunscreen, and a few First Aid items. I need a new can of bug spray, but I should be all right for now.

I was hoping for some really interesting stuff lurking inside the box when I opened it for the first time, but there were only a couple of these flat grey spiders:

There are cardinals everywhere, not that I'm complaining:

Happy hot cross buns! Happy Easter!
