A million dollar rain fell on the Thumb area of Michigan today. It was a rain that settles the clouds of dust that have flying behind the planters and cultivators as farmers work at getting the last of the crops planted and tilled. The birds were a bit bedraggled as they came to the feeder to find a tasty morsel, in spite of the rain. This female cardinal, a frequent visitor, hunkered down for a blast of rain, yet wanted some seed.
And this mourning dove looked downright wet as she pecked her way across the garden beds and looked for some of the seeds that drop from the feeder.
The rows of corn are easy to see against the wet ground as the plants begin their upward journey toward the sun and maturity.
