Cold rain, hot soup
Then a nice lull before the real front came through.
The front was really windy with 2 heavy downpours.
Everything was drenched, but at least the there was no more rain in sight.
Not only did the front bring all the weather drama but, apparently, a flock of birds.
I was washing dishes and there was a dark flutter right outside. Suddenly there was a flock of starlings squabbling over the suet cake on the deck while others were overcrowding the bird feeder. These are the first I've seen since Fall.
When I returned with my camera I then saw that a lot of the flock were actually robins! They were all over the still-fruited crabapples.
Those not in a tree were tearing through the leaf mulch and under the perennial stalks. Such a ruckus!
Well, after all that activity, I retreated to the kitchen and rustled up some hot lunch. Click the pick for details.
