It was raining all weekend and it had been raining since last Thursday . It was a nice and quiet weekend though . We did have a break from the rain yesterday afternoon for a bit as it brightened up for a short time .
So Papa , Miggs and I ventured out for a bit . Miggs was happy to get outside and do her yard sniff to make
sure all was good !
That look of WHAT ?! WHERE ?!
The grass has thickened up and greened up so nicely that we have to cut it more often now but kind of hard to do that when it is still wet from all the rain we have had hopeful that a few days of sun shine and warm temps will help with that . The leaves are falling more now as well and changing .
It is a bit gloomy here again today and it was foggy this morning but so far no more rain thank goodness , the sun looks like it will be breaking through this white wash of over cast soon .. I hope ! The rest of the week for us looks sunny and warm .
The Blue jays here have been hording around the feeders and stirring up a ruckus , why this morning there were 6 of them all on the ground dashing up and down from the cedar hedge that's there to the ground under the feeders , they are funny birds to watch . I spotted a Junco on our walk this morning and the Eastern Blue birds are about as well , I had seen 4 of them sitting high up on the wires , didn't have my big camera with me , oh well , maybe next time ! I have also seen and heard the Robins again , funny how some birds disappear at the end of August making me think they have migrated already only to see and hear them back this time of year , unless these are some stragglers on their way through as we are on the migration path . Very early in the mornings just at dusk we have our windows open I have been hearing the strange sound from the Great Blue Heron flying over , they do make a weird yet distinct sound . The Starlings are flocking in droves to and fro and the Canadian Geese have been flying over head as well in huge flocks . The hummers have truly left now as the nectar feeders have been very quite , so the nectar feeders have been emptied , cleaned up and put away till next summer . Whilst most of our summer birds have left Fall birds have been returning . My how fast the months and seasons go by .
I cant believe it is October already !
This coming weekend is a long weekend for us as it is our Thanksgiving , looking forward to a family gathering for that over the weekend , hoping the weather is nice for it all to .
Well ….. that’s it for me for now , I am hoping to get out more this week and get going on the rest of my gardens as the weather is to be nice . I am saying out loud as I turn to look out the window as I am typing this Oh Look !! sunshine WOOHOO !!! I’m out of here then ….. Later Gators !
Until next time .
