Fledgling robin

Pooping on my driveway. Parents are watching it from the trees.

Fully vaccinated

 2nd dose AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine plus one hour. Feel fine. The saddest thing was I overheard the pharmacists talking - they had 50 shots but would be only giving out 31 that day because people cancelled when they heard it was AstraZeneca. AstraZeneca is only being given for second doses now in Canada. I saw two people walk up to the counter and cancel when they heard it was AstraZeneca. There haven't been any significant side effect issues with second doses of AstraZeneca with people who had no problem with the first shot.

 I know the street where the attack that killed four of a Muslim family in London last Sunday happened - driven it often for work and to visit friends who live about 5 minutes away from the crime scene - even knew the mosque, which is the oldest in Ontario. So I lived down the street from the scene of the Quebec City attack, and across the street from the Polytechnique Montréal shootings.

Haskap, Peonies, Rhododendron

White peonies

Haskap, one of many names like blue honeysuckle, sweetberry honeysuckle, fly honeysuckle, blue fly honeysuckle, blue-berried honeysuckle, haskap, or the honeyberry, my dessert.

Cherry Blossoms

Cherry blossoms - surprisingly the Japanese beetles eat their leaves! I spray them now with Neem oil - insecticide doesn't work on them, but the oil stops them from eating them.

Feathers, but no body.

Dove's feathers - I think a hawk was chasing it and it hit the window and the hawk stripped off its feathers before taking it away.

Covid-19 vaccine update

#AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine + 2 days - little bit of soreness at the injection site, otherwise nothing.

The End

 Mom's interment. Wore clothes I'd had in the closet forever. It was a very simple ceremony.
