We are continuing to have lots of rain.
The female cardinal still has her immature beak.
Her feathers blend into the deck.
Almost looks like a different bird standing up tall.
Below is a male house finch at one of my deck bird baths.
The rest of the shots are ones I took at Grace Garden in Durham, NC.
The frequent rainfall is keeping everything very green.
Usually by this time of the summer, heat has started burning and browning my world.
This year the rain and cooler temperatures have resulted in a much greener fresh looking environment.
Although there were some flowers in the garden I focused on the green shots.
