We started the day with dark, ominous clouds and the threat of storms and flooding. We’re ending the day blessed to have received only a little more rain. My flowers are still happy and the local wildlife is thriving.
I threw out some bird seed in an area that doesn’t have standing water. The doves are seemed grateful.
I walked around and took a few photos. It would be great if we actually got to eat some of the grapes this year. Yeah...right.
I thanked God for our safety and prayed for those who are not safe tonight.
I checked on a couple of new transplants. Ironic that this year I made sure I bought “drought tolerant” plants!
I mouthed a strange little request as I glanced toward the pond: “Please let that be the neighbor’s dog.” Something big and golden+white ducked under a cedar tree. Never did see it come out of the shade again. Could have been anything from a deer to a bobcat. I’m counting on it being the dog!
I disturbed a killdeer that obviously has a nest nearby. These photos are part of her “broken wing” act to lure me away from it.
Not a bad way to start June. Humbled by the knowledge that it could have been far worse.
