Funny how you don't mind them so much when you're incapacitated and can't be outdoors anyway.
They're good for dog-watching (at least our new kitty thinks so ~ that's her head in the bottom left corner of the photos above & below)
She prefers when he's outside looking in, versus inside with her!
Sleeping is another good option.
Especially appealing after a meal and a romp outdoors.
My camera skills have gotten rusty so a day like this is perfect for practice.
More obviously needed...
I bet the squirrel wishes she hadn't been evicted from the flicker box today.
Before she moved in, flickers were regularly checking it out. As excited as I get by that, they never nest because the grackles & starlings always force them out (which causes me to take down the box altogether.)
Back inside: Paph 'Deperle' has a second bloom.
There's only one more bud left to open.
The oncidium orchid my brother gave me several winters ago has also opened. This one has taken to blooming every six months, lucky for me.
Nothing to do now but wait for the sun...
