Blowing Bubbles In My Puddle

June 21, 2010
Good morning on this first day of Summer. It's really beautiful outside at the moment, but it will probably get quite a lot warmer as the day goes on. I'm at work so I can't chat very long, but I do have photos to share this morning.

Yesterday afternoon, the skies opened up and the thunder and lightening and heavy rain were upon us. Much as I try to photograph the rain, my pictures just seem to come out blurry. BUT!! Every now and then I do get lucky. When it rains, we get a large puddle at the end of our driveway. So, from the window in my living room, I got these puddle shots. I was actually trying to capture the rain falling, but these photos were such fun. It looks like my puddle is blowing bubbles!

I have often wondered if the birds get wet when it rains like that, and how they manage to cope with it. Well I found out that they get just as soggy as we do when it rains. At least we get to stay indoors where it is dry. Here is one soggy looking Blue Jay trying to have a bit to eat yesterday during the rain.
Now I have to get back to work. The Mrs. has wakened so it's time to make her breakfast. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous first day of Summer.
Hugs, Edna B.
