The day started rainy. No surprise. Early in the morning we noticed a visitor who was hoping to come inside and dry out.
Katie and I spent most of the day outside working in the garden. Last fall we dug up a lot of overgrown perennials and now we have a lot of open garden. The good news is we get to choose some new things to fill in the blanks. The bad news is with all this rain weeds had already taken up residence. After several days of weeding we’re almost ready to get to the fun part.
Katie supervised most of the work.
One of his siblings was over in the yard…he eventually flew, a little wobbly, into the shrubs by the flower garden. If you click on the picture to make it bigger you’ll see the little adolescent spots on his back.
Late in the day we had tornado warnings and a lot of wind and rain. By then all three baby birds had left the nest; I thought it was a bad time for them to take off on their own. I hope they’re all right, wish they had stayed in the nest one more night, but I guess all parents, even foster bird parents, feel that way no matter when their little ones fly away.
So tomorrow maybe I’ll work on the vegetable garden which is, of course, a disaster. Katie will do her usual supervising
