Saturday It Rains




 
Mindy
 
 
Hi everyone!  Yes, it is raining hard at times.  This makes it difficult to watch our bird and squirrel TV at our window.
 
 
I have been watching the young birds fly around our deck, they must be in flight training and sometimes they alight on the deck railing.   We found an empty nest that had been knocked out of a tree.
 
 
 
I wonder if this had been their home.
 
 
One of my other favorite subjects to watch is Mr. Squirrel!
 
 
He is snacking on some of the sunflower seeds that fall out of the bird feeder.
 
We have a few colorful flowers that are trying to survive the heavy rains.  We got a couple of photos on a sunnier day.
 
 

 
This one is from our magnolia tree.
 
 
and this one from our rhododendron bush
 
 
 
This last one does not grow in our yard at all, we wish it did.  It is a planter which you will find in our public gardens.  I did not go there, but our human beans did.
 
Hope you enjoy these, because I wanted to post something colorful on a cool and rainy Saturday!
 
Hope you are having a great weekend!

That magnolia is especially gorgeous.

All the years I lived in Halifax, I'd always cut through the Gardens when they were open, when headed downtown. (Didn't have a car then either!) I haven't been back to Hfx in almost 2 years, but when I was there last, the Dahlia exhibit was on (in the Gardens). Glorious!

The weather this year is VEXING. It's 116 at our house today!

Mindy, the boys here think you are absolutely SO beautiful!

It is fun to watch the baby birds have flying lessons. I would like to help them but mum makes me stay indoors when they are in the garden.

We hope the rain stops so you can get back to watching that great Bird and Squirrel TV!
