Outdoors -- it's TIME

OK, spring is over in the DC area.
Summer weather hits today.
It's time to deal with mosquitoes.
That means I have to go out every night and dump the bird bath.
It holds over 2 gallons of water and it's nice and still and flat and there's lots of nutrients in it counting whatever it is the birds wash off in there.
And they do wash a lot, the robins at least every afternoon and the catbirds and starlings more than once a day.
The timing is tricky, though.
I've heard the cardinals come calling at dusk.
Oh well, it's summer and there's no snow and ice to bother with any more, and I do have a porch light I can turn on.
More on this tomorrow in the gardening segment.
