First Saturday - Work in the Park Day

First Saturday
 Work in the Park Day

Annette and Larry were committed to a work day and cleanup day down in the Teasdale Park (started to say City Park, but Teasdale is not an incorporated City!). It is an annual event they have done for a few years now. Lots of folks work, and then they have lunch in the shelter house. Mom and I stayed home, this year. We were sad that it seemed to be raining, up here, between 9 and 10 a.m. But, it didn't last, and they had a good work day. Here Larry and some of the guys are working on a new walk/bike path they just started that goes around the park. (Thanks to Annette for photo!)

 
Hummingbirds are a little late getting to the house this year. There has been one, from time to time, it seems. Today, I finally got him with the camera.


Hummingbird is drinking, lower right, in case you missed it....  ;-)

Larry put a shield on the bird feeder stand, yesterday, to keep the squirrels out of the bird-feeder. Well, I happened to see the little chipmunk JUMP from the white stump on the right, to get to the feeder!  ;-)


The larger squirrels on the ground haven't tried it yet!  ;-)

Nancy worked on a jigsaw puzzle and her computer; I worked on blogs and other writing...

Already in a work mode, Annette worked in the yard, cleaning out old dried sticks from the little green flowering plants...


Larry also worked, out back (east side), moving some rocks to put in a drain pipe.


The day ended something like it began... some rain, about 7:30 p.m., followed by a nice rainbow!



It was another nice day!  ;-) Thus ended the first week of your visit in Utah this May...  ;-)
