The up side, I think I got a few really good shots today of some birds. The down side, it’s started to rain. I’ve been working in my garden all week to have it ready to ‘show it off’ tomorrow. This last rain shower will have damaged the beautiful roses. Damn! And it will rain some more to cancel any hope of an outdoor lunch. I’m too tired to be bothered with this post, so it will have to do. I found this thistle while I was cleaning up the garden. I rather like it in all it’s stages of development. So it will do just nicely. The birds can wait.
