Good morning everyone! It’s another nice spring morning here, though just a bit foggy. We had some rain yesterday, it wasn’t a lot but a nice light rain anyway, making the ground wet and the air fresh. The robins seemed especially excited in their singing this morning, possibly anticipating all those worms that have been brought closer to the surface because of the rain. However, they probably are not thinking that way at all, that’s just my thoughts. I have been using the new WP editor this week, trying to get myself accustomed to it. I don’t really like the idea of blocks. It just slows things down. There are some nice things to it as well though and I guess once I get used to everything it will be fine.
It’s nice to be back on the deck this morning with my coffee and enjoying the birds singing and the squirrels chattering. There are 3 squirrels now and 2 of them are constantly trying to assert their authority over this territory, neither one wanting to give in to the other. They get into some rather wild “discussions” at times. Once they locked themselves into a ball and were rolling around out on the rock hill out back here and they rolled right over the edge at one point, about a 6 foot drop and just continued rolling around on the ground like nothing happened. Somehow they finally broke free of each other and the chasing began. It was like they took turns chasing each other too, quite comical to watch. Finally one decided he had enough and left with the other chasing for quite a distance. I thought perhaps that meant he was going to be the top squirrel after that, but not so, just the next day the loser from the previous day ended up victorious. The third squirrel just tries to stay away from both of them.
And now some rainy day pics from yesterday to share with you…
And we will begin with this lovely pink petunia above still wearing it’s teardrops of joy from the pleasant rain.
And in the above picture we have a very nice geranium. Both are part of my small container garden on my deck this year. I did try this once before, but someone came along at night just when the flowers were looking super nice and dumped them all out over the deck. It was quite a mess and I was only able to salvage a couple geraniums from that.
But I decided to give it another try, surely it won’t happen again. I hope you enjoy these flowers, have a very wonderful Wednesday and God bless!
