…A week late, but here it is anyway.
It rained. A lot.
And then it rained some more.
We finally got a break on Monday afternoon.
I was watching the birds at the feeders, it looked like they were enjoying the break in the weather as well.
I saw this guy, a new one that I’d never seen before.
I thought maybe pigeon? But he doesn’t look like the usual grey pigeons we get around here, so I googled and it is apparently a Mourning Dove, also known as a Turtle Dove. I’ve been seeing him quite regularly over the past week.
Next thing you know, I see this guy…
He made three trips to the peanut feeder, that I saw. I waited a while after the last trip but he didn’t come back. I very much enjoyed watching his antics though.
This is the biggest squirrel I’ve ever seen around our yard, I think. As a matter of fact, it’s the first squirrel I’ve seen in a while. We used to have a few of those little reddish ones around, they would sit on the wood fence and scold for all they were worth. I don’t think we’ve seen any in the past couple of years though – too many cats around these days I suppose. Hope this guy manages to avoid all the hunters!
When I went out to check on the garden, I noticed that my peas are coming up and the strawberries are ripening.
