Daily Pics #167.

Good morning everyone and Happy Monday! The sun has been up for a while now, with just a few clouds around and it’s much milder this morning as well which is very nice. Sir George didn’t show up this morning, but Lady Pearl was here so I stayed close by until she had finished eating. She squawked her thanks as she left and I let the crows fight over the few remaining pieces of bread. The blue jays were here early this morning too, showing up right around 5. When I got up at 4:25 there were so many birds already up and singing, sounded so beautiful. However they were likely singing by 3:30 this morning. The long days of summer are so nice. The chipmunks were here early this morning, they don’t normally show up until 6, but this morning they were here about 5:15. Both Pocket and Skamper showed up almost at the same time. But they do have a short summer to prepare for a very long winter so it’s understandable that they would want to get an early start. The loons sound so nice early in the morning as they fly overhead laughing as they go. Plus another one, likely on the river, gives it’s long cry in response. Oddly I’m not seeing the loons on the river these days, but perhaps they move further downstream during the day when I’m down there. The song sparrow and white-throated sparrow are singing so nicely now and the phoebe has joined in as well. And while I get my coffee, let’s take a look at today’s pics…

In this first pic above we have an oddity, a light orange Iceland poppy. Since my landlord didn’t have any that color the bees must have been busy doing some cross pollinating to come up with a new color this year. Quite interesting to see this color which is half way between the yellow and orange ones.

Then in the above pic we have a common flower from chives. They really are quite beautiful and I managed to get some pics before my landlord cuts them all off. Well, I hope you all have a great Monday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
