Patsy taught me that when birds or chickens poof out their feathers they are either hot or cold. I say this Hawk is hot! We had a reprieve of cool weather but it is hot again, but not for long I am sure.
Another thing Patsy commented about was the flowers of fall are often oranges and browns and goldens and spring flowers are pinks and blues. The above is a weed from the Meadow, but it is really pretty. Don't guess it is fall because it is the wrong color.
I love it when a Blue bird comes up to the water hole in the back yard. They are one of my favorite birds but they like a fence row for their nests, one facing an open field as they eat mainly bugs and insects. My sunflower seed is no attraction to them.
Astrid posted this selfie which I thought was so pretty that I am saving it here. She texted me this morning that she forgot her homework and I ran it over to the high school. I peeked into the Principals office but she was out. She was one of my students when she was 12, a long time ago as now her kids are grown and she is in charge!
