A warm rainy day!

I was sitting at the kitchen table when I heard a whole lot of chattering going on. I looked up and noticed that little red, the reddish brown squirrel, was trying to get my attention.

He was letting me know that the seed supply had dwindled to almost nothing. He was also letting me know that the black squirrels were eating all the food that was there and he was not happy (I guess he figures it’s his food.)

So I got up to talk to him and told him I was on my way to fill it up.

He waited, watching me as I stepped out onto the veranda, and continued watching until I was headed towards the food bins. Then he scurried away. What a cute little guy!

A while later, a Baltimore oriole bird landed on the finch bird feeder, just long enough to get my attention (and a photo) before flying away. I think he was telling me he wanted his nectar back. You see I brought all of the nectar feeders in to wash them. I made new nectar and was just letting it cool. After seeing the oriole, I put the feeders back.

I just love how nature communicates with us, if we’re open to it!

Not long after, Ashes wanted to go outside, so I got up and, right off, I noticed something blue in the tree. I waited and watched as it landed on the birdfeeder and I quickly grabbed my camera to get a picture of it…an indigo bunting!!!

Every day I watch the leaves grow larger on the trees, especially my maple tree…the inspiration for tonight’s painting of the day.
