After planting on both Saturday and Sunday, I was hoping we would get a little rain. Mother Nature does the best job of watering everything. I really got my wish! I woke up to light rain this morning, it stopped long enough that I went out and pulled some weeds out of the peony garden, and then it really got with the program. I just saw that several roads in our area are flooded. My plans to make a run to the grocery are on hold until tomorrow, I don't need to add to the traffic and problems that high water can cause.
A few birds have been dropping in between rain drops.
|This female grosbeak just stopped by for a snack in the pouring rain.|
|A chickadee found a good spot to sit it out.|
|The Orchard Oriole male is still hanging around and even though he is wet, he wanted some jelly.|
Photos through windows and pouring rain aren't stellar, but you get the idea.
We've had a soaker most of the day, I emptied 2 tenths our this morning, and just now another 1.5 inches, so nearly 2 inches today, and it is still raining. I noticed a lot of mosquitoes when I went out just now, I suppose it is time for 'the hatch'.
I am happy we got the rain, it can slow down now.
Life is Good.
