Whilst we were fixing supper Far Guy said “Goldfinches just arrived on the feeders.” After supper Chance and I went out to sit a spell.
The Goldfinches are sporting their summer finery.
As you can see this one still has some winter feathers.
Chance meanderd around the yard doing his usual stuff…then came to lay down by me and survey the yard…he looks to the right and to the left over and over again.
I am busy with the birds…watching them flit around…then I notice a squirrel that came bounding into the yard and as soon as it saw Chance it flattened just like a pancake.
I wondered who would see who first. The squirrel tried to exit the yard and I told Chance to get him…and Chance chased him off…makes an old dog feel good…the squirrel was in no danger.
We spread some grass seed and a bit of garden soil on some bare spots in the lawn and then sat outside until Jo showed up looking for Odda…we sat and visited for awhile and sure enough Odda came to visit. It was a lovely day in Minnesota on Monday it was 80 something F 26C eh! We went straight from Winter to Summer. It is supposed to cool off and rain…so maybe our grass seeds will grow fast!
