Yesterday we had "local showers":
It was raining for about 15 minutes, so hard that the ground couldn't take up the water, and the gravel area of our yard looked like this.
I was happily stitching the big central panel of the Happy Scrappy Spring quilt and watching the cyclists in the mountains. Luckily they had a sunny day.
The thunder last night wiped our sky clean and we are having a hot day again. Not a cloud in sight.
I couldn't resist showing you one last bird baby picture:
This was the last baby flycatcher to come out of the nest. They only stay in sight for a few hours on the lawn before they disappear to the safety of the woods to learn the skills needed to cope on their own. Click the image so you can see the fierce look in this one's eyes, and the wide baby peak.
