The rains came down today...this afternoon a gentle mist was falling. The bird feeders were full of a variety of birds...all eating and getting a shower. They would eat a bit and then fluff their feathers and go back to eating. Doves, cardinals, house finches, gold finches, sparrows, blackbirds, cowbird, hummingbirds, and chickadees...all made an appearance, while we were eating. The hummingbird feeder was left out last night. This morning it was empty, but it was still hanging. Tonight, I'll have to bring it in. I had it hanging on a shepherd's hook that I attached to the corner of the deck...hanging in to the deck instead of out. When it drips...I found ants. So, I changed it and now it's hanging out.
Tomorrow is cleaning day. We are having company for Father's Day. I guess we'll have steaks, potato salad, a green salad, Dan is bringing some peppers and cannolis. Joe is such a simple man...he loves deviled eggs,and a dip made with onion soup. He always says, "Nothing fancy please." So, since it's his day...I will comply.
Have a nice night...
