Cool Down

I awoke to the sound of rolling thunder.

Quickly I went to the deck.
A gentle shower, a cup of coffee,
I started my day

with the birds.

It looks like the Chickadee has its hands folded behind it's back.

The clouds have just rolled in, on this side of Missouri. I hear thunder. We need the rain!

Hi Mary,
Chick-a-dee does look like he had his hands folded behind his back. LOL
All the birds are so fun.
Crazy bird day. Lots of babies and new birds coming in. I cannot keep the feeders full. I may need to set up another peanut feeder. So many woodepeckers. The Nuthatches must be feeding babies near by because she is coming for nuts every five minutes.

Dear Pat,
Glad to know rain is coming your way. I love cloudy days and this cool down is delicious.
We planted lots more seeds last night hoping for rain.

Dear Jayne,
I shall sing, "Rainy night in Georgia"! I will think sweet, soft, nurishing rain for you and your birds and your flowers and your trees.
Sherry, who loves the rain

There is no better start to the day. What would we do without them?

Hi Nina,
So glad you also love the birds. You have so many in your area. I am looking forward to following your front porch sightenings too.
