And the heavens opened up and oh boy, did we ever get a good soaking! All night long, the winds were blowing and the rain kept falling. At work, the Mrs has skylight windows in her roof. Ever try to snooze and listen to a monitor while Mother Nature was having a rather boisterous party on your roof?
The rain splats on the skylights sound like kids banging on large pots with hammers. I even had to shut off the TV because it was getting difficult to hear it, and the Mrs slept peacefully through it all. This morning, the winds are still blowing, although not so hard, and the rain is still coming down. The heaviest parts come in spurts with a lighter steady rain in between.
Sad to say, when I got home I looked out my window and there is no grass yet. The seeds are quite soggy, but still right where I put them. I wonder how many days it takes for them to turn into grass. Two? Four? Lots more? I would not be a good farmer. I'm too anxious for things to start growing as soon as they are planted. Even though I know that it takes a while, I'm like a kid waiting for Santa.
Today I have a photo show for you. When I was at the store a few days ago, there were so many blackbirds flying around the parking lot and landing in the trees. I just had to take some photos. I'm not sure if my pictures show a turf battle or a macho "Me Tarzan, You Jane" type of thing. I'll let the photos tell their own story. Enjoy.
Now I'll post the last two parts of "April Showers" (how appropriate for today's weather!), and the download links.
Your links are:
When you've finished downloading, hop on over to Su's new blog and pick up her two parts. Don't forget to stop a moment to leave a thank you. Here is Su's preview.
Now it's time to get Tootsie her morning meds and rustle up some breakfast. Then I shall do as the Old Man in the nursery rhyme and hop into bed and think about snoring for a while. Till tomorrow, Y'all stay dry and have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
