The day started out wild and woolly, with rain driving at the windows and a bluster billowing the trees. I spent the time sewing an applique on a little t-shirt I decided to embellish for my son's friend's newborn.
Fortunately, the weather cleared up by the afternoon, so I headed to the bank and then delivered the gift. I wondered what I would put in my blog today, as I hadn't taken any photos, until I saw a swamp which I thought looked quite picturesque!
I noticed a silver lining cloud ~
Hmmm, I thought, that's a start! When I returned home, I noticed three Spotted Towhees. One was doing the dried-leaf-hop-jump-scritch-scritch-dance...
A red bloom caught my eye, and I realized that the Camellia buds were opening up, taking Spring into their own hands ~
Still, no photos of new birds visiting...when, suddenly, out of the corner of my eye I heard a sound and spied a covey of California Quail scurrying hell bent for leather, as they do. So the Quail saved the day arriving just in time to make it into today's blog :)
Watch them go...
