We have been having all kinds of weather lately cold, wet, warm, dry…. it’s been all over the place. It hasn’t been too good for drying my washing but it has been good for my plants, and, judging by the activity in the garden and the amount of spiderweb I have walked through in the last few weeks, it has clearly been good weather for those who live outdoors.
Well, nearly everyone who lives outside. We had a few days when the heavy rain never let up, only the strength varied, keeping away the birds who usually arrive for their daily feed. We figured they had found somewhere comfortable and dry to wait it out. Our assumptions were proven wrong when a small group turned up, soaked and hungry…
One look at their bedraggled feathers and it became clear that they had just been hiding in a tree waiting for it to stop, and that no food deliveries were being made to them!
I made the mistake of going out in the rain to put sunflower seeds out on the back verandah for them and this guy didn’t even let me put it down. As I stretched my arm out he jumped onto my wrist and scoffed the handful before any of the others got a chance! I felt so sorry for the poor soggy thing I stayed out in the rain until he was finished. :D
