Some might call today “a grey day,” but the birds don’t mind.
And neither do we.
We’ve enjoyed this cool rainy day.
A lovely break after the heat earlier this week. We had hot sunshine and temps over 100 just a few days ago.
But today we have enjoyed the fog and mist.
The sky is sculpture in motion with great dark clouds, but our garden looks vibrant.
And the birds are loving it!
We took a drive down the Parkway after running some errands this morning.
And to our surprise we found three swans in Halfway Creek. They appear to be the same three who were hanging out in College Creek on Sunday afternoon.
My friends believe this is a family of parents and cygnet, who has not yet gone out on her own.
The three are harmonious together, whatever their relationship might be.
And we were happy to find them again.
The Parkway is alive today with eagles and herons, red winged blackbirds, ravens, and a hawk high up in a pine.
We couldn’t stop for all, but we managed to photograph a few.
And we still made it home before the skies opened up again to give us another delicious shower.
What a beautiful day.
