A Very Soggy Iggy

Today is one of those grey, rainy days with no critters outside my bathroom window. Even Sammy hasn’t been to inspect the fresh supply of birdseed in the feeder. Mr. GBH made a very brief appearance across the other side of the water, and the Anghina,Β  looking quite dejected, took shelter in the branches of the fir trees.


The Iggy delegation which usually puts in an appearance around 9:30 am, was absent today. I was wondering where it is that they disappear to every day at 5:30 pm almost on the dot, and whether it’s quite sheltered from the rain, when I suddenly spotted a very soggy and lonely looking Iggy laying in the grass. He looked across at my window, as if to say. “It’s alright for you. You have a nice cosy bathroom to keep dry in. If that window opened, I’d be in there in a jiffy. ”


Hope your day is going better than Iggy’s.

  1. Ziggy wouldn’t like it much around here these days. It’s been pretty wet, although we’ve got a sevewral good days coming our way. If he hurries, he may be able to get here for a couple of them. πŸ™‚

  2. I often wonder about our critter friends out in the weather. I’m sure they have their opinions about what might be falling on their heads, but they probably keep those opinions to themselves…mostly! πŸ˜‰

  3. as we still narrow our own search of where in Fl. we’d like to end up, i watch the weather, and i just want you to know im thinking about you , and all the others we know, every time one of these “storms” comes through.

  4. The day was nice today, Tuesday, but it did rain on Monday.
    I like how pretty Mr. Anhinga looks up in the tree. Such crisp, clear feathers and touches of color really makes me think of a pin striped lapel, outlining with style, what a guy! Tipping my imaginary Frank Sinatra or Gene Kelly top hat.
    Have a happy rest of the week, Sylvia! πŸ™‚

  5. That picture of Mr. GBH looks like a painting. That is very nice.

    I am sure many of your local friends will be eager to get into your bathroom if you open the window πŸ™‚

  6. Poor Iggy – he looks soggy 😦 Our Guinea Fowl tried to fly into the kitchen window the other day when it was raining. Gave me the fright of my life (lucky we’ve got screens!)
