It's been so dry around here... it's very discouraging. Besides a couple of .2" of rainfall . . . it hasn't rained for 8 weeks. Solid. I don't want to show you photos of the flower beds, it's depressing. I do continue to water very occasionally, just to keep Most things afloat, but it's taking its toll.
On a Brighter note... a MUCH brighter note, as you will soon see... look who visited today! Looking for a drink, obviously! :-)
Mr. Baltimore Oriole!
This photo was taken from the garage...
And this one was taken from the driveway... very patient bird!
Look for Baltimore Orioles high in leafy deciduous trees, but not in deep forests: they’re found in open woodland, forest edge, orchards, and stands of trees along rivers, in parks, and in backyards.
As soon as he'd discerned I was finished taking photos, he hopped onto the hummingbird feeder for a drink.
