My little friends came a-visiting

The cows were just south and west of our house
and there was an electric fence that kept them in...all except
the calves. They decided to explore and my driveway
was one of the spots to explore.They are cute but not on my lawn and in the flowers.
After 1 and 1/4 inch of rain in 30 minutes this is the end

Everywhere there is water sitting around.
This is sandy soil so disappears quickly.

More of the same.

The forgotten little bird

Now that our snow is gone the birds are back.
There is one little bird that has been here all day just waiting for her spouse to show up.
Now you ask do you know is it a "she". Well let me tell you... she sits one place and then flies to another and sits there. From there she flies to the bird bath and sits there, sometimes lands on the grass and sits there. She will maybe fly away for a few seconds and then is back again. Just waiting and waiting.

Now you know if this were a male bird, he would wait maybe 10 minutes at the most and then fly to the nearest watering hole and stay there thinking, "the hell with it".
