Rainy Days

In between the showers today, I went out to the garden and took a few pictures.   These are the results.  While I was puttering here and there I saw something that I've never seen before - a young chickadee being fed by its mother.  Although I got just the one picture (and not a great one at that), I feel lucky all the same to have been standing where I was able to observe this lovely scene.
