However, the rain has been good for the foliage and berry crops. The honeysuckle is now covered with ripening red berries. And the cherries are turning red on the cherry tree. Yesterday I noticed a pair of Cedar Waxwings in the maple tree nearby. I’m sure they were checking things out for supper.
Is that a bit of blue sky I see?
The rain has been so heavy at times the wild daisies are bending over. The black-eyed susans are still standing straight, perhaps their stems are a bit sturdier.
But now, mid-morning, a glimpse of blue sky is showing in the west. Can we hope?
And then the sun breaks through! Middy braves a walk across the wet deck to jump up on the railing to the stairs, a positive sign when she is willing to go outside.
