Song Sparrow and Flowers

It was raining again yesterday morning when Chester and I took our walk along the Red River, so I left my camera at home.  Of course, I saw 3 young Wood Ducks who were on their own at that time.  Pictures in the rain don’t normally look great anyway – but I saw them.

A couple of days ago though, the sun managed to shine a bit when we walked, so I have some Song Sparrow pictures from then to show you.  I also went out this morning to get a couple of pictures of my flowers.  The sun is shining this morning and they are not predicting rain in the near future.

I pulled 4 more Red Lily bugs from the Lilies yesterday.  I am losing this battle.

I received a few comments about the 2 children who have died and their missing mother from yesterday’s blog.  There is still very little information being released, but the mother is still missing.  The one piece of information that has come out (apparently from a relative) is that the mother was being treated for postpartum depression.  The father of the children was at work.  Such a sad situation.
