Today Hurricane Irene is marching north along the eastern US coast dumping tens of inches of rain. I wish all those folks well and hope everyone stays safe. But I sure do wish we had some of that rain here.
Temps are hovering between 105 and 110 again. All the animals are terribly stressed. We are keeping bird baths brimming with fresh water every day all over the yard. Today I saw 3 of these finches camped out on the window sill in the shade. They have given up trying to get anything out of the hummingbird feeder. After these guys flew away I put a container of water on the sill. I hope they come back and find it.
