I was looking out the window yesterday and saw the neatest thing. A humming bird landed on the edge of the waterfall. I don't know how he held on, but he drank and bathed while hanging on. It was awesome, wish i had a camera. Seems like the season has finally kicked off. Business has been steady, and increasing. The weather has been up and down, but nice all in all for a spring.

I learned two things about Rabbits this week. One, they will use the same nest over and over again. The first set of bunnies, three, are out of the nest and growing up. Two, rabbits can have litters of SEVEN! I just looked and counted seven, holy crap. It will be fun watching them grow up, but I really have to watch with the mower and trimmer, ugh. I almost hit a couple of the first litter. Have a great day!

I just found another batch of baby bunnies in the same nest as a couple weeks ago. They are about 4" long, so cute. It seems the season kicked into high gear this week. Every day was crazy. I had one pond cleaner quit on me, and had to take up the slack, ugh. My college girls start this weekend, so things will be good now. I will be able to breath as of Sunday. Amy and I need it. We are getting lots of plants out now, as the temperatures have been steadily rising. The anacharis looks like crap. Today I drove to Baltimore to pick up inventory, cleaned plant tanks, trimmed the grass, worked on the fish system, and still managed to help at least a dozen customers. I'm exhausted, almost bed time.

The last two days it has felt like July. If you know me, you know I hate the summer heat and humidity. I can't breath, and have to spend my time inside with the air conditioning. Where is the Spring? We once again have had a nice busy weekend. We have gotten a lot of things done around here too. Today is the Make-a-Wish Foundation truck-a-thon, Hundreds of truckers drive Children on a parade route that passes our store. Fire trucks blow their sirens, and trucks blow their air horns, as the children wave to hundreds of on-lookers lined along the road, waving back. It is a very emotional time for me, as the thought of these childrens' lives are limited. Gettysburg Water Gardens has a yearly pond tour-all proceeds benefit this wonderful organization. Please support Make-a-wish.
