And the Weather is…

This past week we had the weirdest weather, from hot days over 80º F too hot and humid to be working outdoors, to a day with strong winds that blew off lots of leaves and patio furniture!. That wind we had also brought heavy storms that dumped several inches of rain and created floods and fallen trees. It rained for 2 days in a row to later change to sunshine and warm days again. Didn’t last long and we had a drop of almost 40ºF changing to dry wintery mornings and pleasant afternoons. You figure it!

Now more leaves are changing colors with the help of cooler weather for some trees and other trees have been stripped of their leaves by the strong winds and rain.

I’ve been busy trimming some of the bushes that were ruined by the rainstorm but I still have some more work to do in order to finish it.

Bird activity at the feeders have been done mainly by Brown-headed Cowbirds which show up from time to time in flocks and feed themselves as much as cows (It’s that why the name…?) 🙂

Well, here are some pictures for you. Enjoy!

  1. We had wintery looking days here too that looked and felt like it would rain…but it didn’t. Send some our way would ya? We sure could use it!
    Cowbirds! I observed a set of three females last year; while eating one would watch the sky, and the other would watch everywhere else. They took turns doing this. I was fascinated!

    Lovely series of images today. I hope you get the yard work done.

    • It happens that weather temperature dropped more and this morning we had a thin frosted lawn, most bushes are withering and are getting flat. While I refilled the feeders I heard and saw a flock of 9 Canada Geese flying over.
      Thanks for sharing D.! 🙂
