(if you look closely at the evergreen in the center of this picture, you can see how hard it's raining)
Here's my rain gauge at 6:00 pm this evening....it has been raining since about 5:30 this morning.
Also here's my outside thermometer this afternoon.
Here's the most popular birdfeeder at my place today. (For those of you who are Wild Birds Unlimited shoppers, this fly-through feeder is made by Holscher and designed to fit their pole system. It's all metal and one of the best birdfeeder investments I've ever made.)The tray part is adjustable, so I moved it up more under the shelter of the roof and the little birdies can eat and get out of the rain for a little bit. They have also been sitting on the branch perches underneath it in an effort to get out of the heavy rain for a few minutes.
I put the rain guard over the hummingbird feeder yesterday when I filled it. There's not too much wind, so the feeder and hummers get a little bit of protection from the downpour.
OK, I'm going to stop complaining now and be thankful I live on high ground. I will pray again tonight for rain and cooler temperatures for all of my dear blogging friends burning up in Canada, and the eastern and southeastern U.S. If there was any way I could send this to you, I sure would.
