Unplanned Outing, with Eagles

The forecast for this entire week:  "Showers.  Rain.  Rain showers."  So yesterday, when it was just a little gray and not actually raining, I decided to tootle off to Swanson's Nursery to get some annuals.

This is the topiary dinosaur that greets visitors -- his name is Humphrey.

After admiring the many colorful displays, I bought some marigolds and snapdragons.

Did you notice the blue in the sky?  And the sunshine?  So did I!  It looked as if the weather was going to stay nice for a while, and I always believe in taking advantage of unexpected sunshine, so I continued on down the road to Golden Gardens Park.

High above us, two eagles soared, often getting quite close together, at times looking as if they were practicing for a Blue Angels show.

Truman seemed happy with the impromptu outing:

This morning I see that the forecast is for "Showers.  Rain.  Rain showers" all day long.  We shall see!

  1. As I scrolled down through you eagle photos I was reminded of "The Big Year". Guess it's time to watch that again. I sure like that movie!
