“Come! You must see this!” said Grant, returning from a shopping expedition.
“Down there, by the trees!”
As usual, when I grab the camera, the opportunity had vanished.
But not for long…
“Do you feel safe at home?” I am always asked at the doctor’s office.
“Oh yes, as long as I stay out of the garden”,
would be my current response!
A result of yesterday’s rain, no doubt.
So what does one do on a rainy day in Cambridge? I can show you what I did…
(yes some of it was in the garden, mercifully bug-free during the rain)
Late in the day, the soaking must have brought yummy things to the surface to tempt my friend Flicker.
He pokes his long beak into the ground
The Flicker is gorgeous. He is not unlike the Red-bellied Woodpecker though you can easily see the differences in the photographs. I love them both, of course.
Once, the Sun almost broke through and I went looking for rainbows but found myself in a heavy mist.
Then, as I was out, I walked around:
Inevitably, I heard a frantic patter of feet:
“Really? You’re not going to let me out?”
“It’s all wet, Lily. Cat’s don’t like wet!”
My so-called lawn. It’s more of a clover field.
Many pictures can be shot from safely indoors
Like a slightly damp groundhog
Or a perching chipmunk
and a fleeing bunny
Late in the day, I went a little mad…
Sun came out in time to sink below the hill, casting long shadows across the grass/clover
