I'm afraid to say
"When will it ever end?" for fear of
having the kind of weather our Texas and Oklahoma friends are
having. A good friend, Lorie, sent me pictures of her street
underwater today! So far, none of my immediate friends has suffered
hardships, but it is all around them and their lives are affected.
Can you see the hawklet flapping his now large wings
in the tree above the nest? Both of them are up and moving
around in the tree... they may have flown today.
They won't go far, as mom and dad will keep feeding them.
Here's a mature hawk taking off last night. I had to fiddle with
the picture bedause the light was so bad.
And we go from the big birds to two tiny visitors !
Today was spent at my "job"... at the National Agricultural Center...
and even though it rained rather steadily all day, our General Factotum,
Ray, (also the beekeeper) obliged these adults and kids (in the back) with two
spins around the track.
There they go!
That's an original depot building that was donated to the Ag Hall.... and is going to be re-painted this summer by members of a model train club who will be moving their displays into it's basement.
They will also have a large model train that runs in and out of the back of the building (non-rideable).
The baby geese are getting so big!
Don't they look like delicate, tiny little dancers?
I saw this beautiful alligator turtle on the way home. If I had had a shovel, I would have helped it across the gravel road. I pray it made it. Last week, I saw a dead female in the same spot, and she had been full of eggs. I tried to nudge it on it's way, but I frankly did not want to get bitten.
I'm hoping that no one deliberately hit it.
Tomorrow I am helping again at the Ag Hall, as they were
short of volunteers. I have met the nicest people there!
