WOW ! yesterday was a day of high winds and torrential rains the entire day . Mind you all is so green and lush now and the rains have settled for now and so have the winds all though still gloomy out and the temps have dropped quite a bit to just around 15C or 54°F . There are tree branches every where and the hydro kept flickering on and off more so in the evening when thunderstorms popped up . The poor birds were finding any where they could to take shelter during this storm .
I was able to capture these two baby Orioles huddling up under our porch on one of my plant hangers looking a bit chilled and wet . Reminds me of the child's poem two little dickey birds sitting on a fence one named Peter and the other named Paul .
Fly away Peter and there was Paul and so on , do you remember that little poem or know of it ? any ways , he was all puffed up and drying off and resting from the heavy rains and high winds that he had to struggle through to get to where he was going !
Miggs was not a happy camper yesterday either as she loves to be out doors but not this day it was too windy and wet she had just gone out long enough to do her business and then straight back in again and got soaked , yuk wet dog smell so I dried her off and have a special spray to help get rid of that yucky wet dog smell she was not impressed that’s for sure lol ! I had just popped out on our patio porch to take these few photos as it all settled down for a moment then it picked up again and that's when I went back in .
This is my east facing kitchen window that’s under our front porch and that never gets rain on it but the winds and rain were so furious yesterday everything got wet .
Mrs Robin has two babies in that nest her second set this year so far . She was quite happy and sheltered from all the rain and winds !
Sparrows chirping happily as they huddle together from the rains and wind feasting under the flat feeder that's under our big old tree ! By old I mean this tree must be at least over 100 as it is the original tree to this farm house which is also old lol !
Every thing is just dripping wet and soggy . Going to take a lot of days with sunshine to dry all this , that’s ok I don't mind lots of sunshine !!!
Another gloomy day here today but not as much wind or rain so maybe we will be able to at least sit on the patio porch and have a chiminea fire going and enjoy the day like we were camping only with the comforts of home lol .
Until next time .
