February roared out like a lion and we had a spectaular hail storm. I had already finished my February month and since the hail was still here March 1st I'm documenting it here. We have had hail before but not two inches of it! We have at least four female Anna's humingbirds and one male coming to the feeder. Am having to fill it once a week now. We are tying to walk most days, but I am a fair weather walker and we haven't had much of that. Took some pictures of some cool looking weeds, sorta thistle like and all dried out. Also saw another bald eagle. Mike left for So Cal on the 5th to meet up with brother Kenny and go to the vintage drags in Bakersfield. Was back on the 10th. Diana, who was suppose to come over to work on some genealogy, called in sick. On the 12th the grandkids, Nik & Leslie and family, came to visit for a long weekend from Camano Island, WA. Leslie had a seminar to attend in Portland, it was canceled after they arrived. Planned to spend at least one day at OMSI. OMSI also closed. The weather that weekend was awful, cold, snowy and rainy. It snowed a few days after they arrived, about an inch. Trying to keep a very active 6 year old entertained inside without his 'stuff’' was a loosing battle. He did not have a good time! Have had 2 pairs of Stellar Jays around and I finally got a picture of one of them. They are such pretty birds. The forget-me-nots have also started blooming. Also have a pair of mourning doves staying around. Have had collared doves for a while, but never the mourning doves.
