The days always seem so L.O.N.G. when the skies are dreary and gloomy and grey…even the sitting sun could only lighten up the misty, dripping clouds a tad. But I suppose a tinge of sunshine is better than no sunshine. 🙂
Terry has become worried that seed corn has rotted in the ground, we see nothing sprouting out there. Later on today we will go out and check. If it has rotted then he will have to re-buy the seed and replant. A very costly thing to have to do, but very necessary.
The little bird from yesterday’s drenching rain post
Is a Bullock Oriole. So far this year I have two pair. I’ve tried sitting out oranges and grape jelly, which everyone assures me they love, but the jelly gets hard and the oranges dry up.
Instead the little feathered friends are sharing the Hummingbird feeders with the Hummingbirds. I have about eight hummers now–I’m thinking that is four pair. I have six feeders out, and could possibly add another one. But I’m not in a hurry—if the food starts going away faster then I will put out another feeder or two. (I use 1 part sugar to 4 parts water, if you are interested.)
Today we have sunshine. Sunshine sure brings joy to my soul.
