It's been raining off and on for a few days, with more due this week. I've gotten some yardwork done, but don't know if I'll get outside today. Hopefully I'll find a time when it's not actively raining. Seen at the bird feeders this week: small flock of sparrows, several mourning doves, a pair of cardinals, many grackles, a pair of blue jays, a cowbird, and a goldfinch. Currently blooming: violets, honeysuckle, zinnias, nannyberry, petunias, marigolds, million bells, moss rose, johnny jump ups.
