I saw a Mallard pair swimming in the ditch by the road in front of our property. I thought it was rather sad that they thought the ditch constituted a pond, rather like the urbanites in their 500 sq.ft. condos who think their little rooms constitute a house. But I guess we have to make-do with whatever is available.
I saw two lovely rose-breasted grosbeaks this morning. So happy they have stopped by. Usually they move on in a couple of weeks. Now I am waiting to see or hear a Baltimore oriole. They also come by this time of year and have a beautiful flute-like song.
We are expecting thunderstorms this evening so that will perk up all the plants.
