Sun in the North - Rain in the South

It's not a unique situation for the Bella Coola Valley to enjoy a nice sunny day, when places south of us are having a wee bit of rain.  It's all just a matter of where the weather systems come in off the Pacific and so happens today was one of the days when we enjoyed 20 C, sun and an all around nice May day, while it was a bit showery in Vancouver and the interior.  The tomato plants I set out last week are enjoying it, and more importantly for plant growth it is staying a bit warmer at night.  Nothing slows gardens down worse than really cool nights, and when we get a spell of very warm nights, you can almost see things exploding in growth.

The big moth (sorry I don't know what kind, not being much an insect guy) in this photo was hanging around my job site this morning, must have forgotten to fly off somewhere before daylight came.  Quite an attractive fellow.  Grizzly
