Sunday’s Summer Sunshine. #1

Good morning everyone! It is nice to say that we are going to have a nice sunny day for a change. There have been so much clouds and rain lately. But, as I have said before, the sun always shines, but sometimes it is briefly covered by some clouds that come along. However, those clouds are necessary for bringing much needed moisture so that plants may grow strong and healthy.

It is the same for us when clouds come along in our lives. Even though we might like to have continual sunshine, that is just not the healthiest thing. Anyway, it is still nice to see the sun again. The last two days gave us clouds, rain and snow flurries.

Another one in a slightly different color.

Yesterday a female rose-breasted grosbeak came along and it was a period when the sun was shining, very briefly as it turned out. So I grabbed my camera and went out slowly and…she was gone. But, since it was sunny I decided to stay out there in case she came back. The sun disappeared almost immediately and within 5 minutes it was snowing, not just the odd snowflake, it was snowing a lot.

So I came back in. I looked out the window a few minutes later and there she was again, on the feeder and with a male, but it was raining so I decided not to bother trying again right then. Perhaps today, if she comes back and it stays sunny. We shall see.

And another in a light purple color.

Yesterday my neighbor was hauling a bunch of junk out to our “transfer facility” (fancy name for garbage dump), so he hauled a bunch of junk away for me too. It was nice to get rid of that stuff on my deck, now I can clean up everything nicely for the summer out there. And, when it gets warm enough, I will plant the flowers I had to bring in my little apartment to keep them from being frosted.

One more in a darker purple.

I really do not have space for them in here, so I kind of had to walk around and over them. Today they went back outside. Oh well, they should be able to stay out there now. I hope you all have a most wonderful Sunday and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Yes, it finally feels like spring! So I am off to the river shortly! It should be much higher level than the last time I was there, I think part of the path will be under water now. But I will go as far as I can. Thank you Ribana, have a wonderful day!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ป๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ“ท
