First of the season

The largest of the western fence lizards was sighted for the first time this spring yesterday afternoon, even larger than before. He seems to have moved his base of operations from a frontyard live oak to the pecan out back. I'm not going to try to catch him to see if his belly is really blue and confirm that he is in fact a he. The first passionflower of the spring opened. And yours truly went aloft and got those sunflowers and mimosa seedlings out of the gutter; the plumber's auger worked well once again to unclog the downspouts on that side. That accounts for a third of the roof-and-gutter cleaning to be done. The first peas from the farmers' market on South Congress were inexpressibly delicious.
