Taking Shelter


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 .

           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 sunshineSun  Smile !!!

             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 .

Rain didn't start here til 3, but it's still going. Don't like so many dull wet indoor days!

Hi Elaine....
Still raining in Mississauga! Leaves everywhere, and the pool looks like it might overflow!
A fire sounds perfect on a day like this!
Linda :o)

Sweet pics of the birds getting shelter from the nasty weather. Brr. It's chilly here today too as that system makes it's way in to NB. So far no rain. Hopefully the sun will be shining there soon. Have a great day.

Such lovely images. I am in love with those baby birds. I've never seen orioles that young. So cute.

Even despite the dreary weather, you still have such a cheery post and photos---Except for Migg's who does look like she's longing for the sunshine to return! :-)

Margaret Adamson said...

Gosh I hope that rain stops for you soon but despite the rain, you managed photos.

I guess we missed the furious rain storm, but, otherwise, we're experiencing plenty of cloud and rain.

The baby orioles are particularly cute!
