Rain again

It is warm and rainy today. Yesterday it was cool and rainy. While hurricanes blow in the South, we get mostly moderate rain. I like this rain -- it is gentle and easily absorbed into the earth.

Birds don't mind it. They have clustered at one of the hanging feeders - house sparrows and house finches, both common in our garden. Also, an occasional mourning dove or blue jay, a family of cardinals, and a gang of chickadees.
