“Eaton Canyon Natural Areas & Trails are closed for the rest of today & Memorial Day, May 25, due to overwhelming crowds that were not following the COVID-19 public health requirements. No walk-ins” the Los Angeles County Parks & Recreation tweeted on Sunday.
The neighborhood has been overly busy since Friday at around noon. I’ve never seen so many people parking (even past our block) in the neighborhood to go hiking over here. Memorial day would have been insane if they didn’t shut it down.
Spent about 3 hours today pulling out weeds from the yard as a result of the horrific job that Armstrong Nurseries and their sub-contractor did or more specifically didn’t do.
Finished laying out the last half a yard of the gravel in the garden.
Butterflies from Mexico have been migrating north for the past day or so. Today several thousand small butterflies made their way through our yard heading roughly Northwest in the last hour or so. It would have been more impressive if they were a tad larger, but sadly I didn’t get any great/awesome photos of the experience.
It’s been raining since early morning, and since it stopped in the last 30 minutes or so the neighborhood pea fowl have been squawking up an entirely different storm. Feels like I’m in a television-based jungle.
Stopped in for an hour to put a deposit on the upcoming work in the front and back yards at the house. Looking at other plants to decorate the office.
I finally got my old ping pong table shipped to the house after after being in storage for a well over a decade. It will require some heavy dusting and cleaning, but who wants to play?
