I usually run with a theme. We are having a damp time of it at the moment. Lots and lots of rain which the garden and I love and that Jazz views as a personal imposition.
In a brief break in the rain we headed down to the lake to complete my birthday roo fix. At first glance there were no roos - but the pelicans were back.
blue-green algae bloom which means that the lakes are not currently safe to swim in for man or beast. I hope that the water birds are not affected by the toxins. Hope, but worry.
We were not the only things relaxing by the lake. Close to where we were standing a small group of wood ducks were dozing. Female wood ducks - who have a white blaze above and below their eyes.
Then we wandered off to continue our roo quest.
I hope you also find solace and heart balm in the week to come.
