Lilacs and Orioles
At the beginning of May, I came down with a miserable cold. The wet, chilly weather was no help. On May 15, I lay down for a nap and when I awoke, this was the scene that greeted me. I snapped a couple of photos, and crawled back under the afghan in disgust!
Just when we were beginning give up hope, the weather did a sharp about-face, and we now seem to have jumped right from Winter into Summer. Temperatures much above normal, and lots of sunshine.
The scent of Lilac and Russian Olive blossoms fill the air, and early mornings are full of birdsong.
The Orioles have been regular visitors to our deck, enjoying the Grape Jelly I put out for them. Sometimes a pair of Purple Finches sneak in for a taste too.
