Wild Bird Wednesday #269

Wild Bird Wednesday #269
Carolina Wren and Tropical Storm Jose

Tropical Storm Jose brought a day of rain on Tuesday, but by Wednesday, the sun once again ruled the skies. Stiff breezes prevailed as Jose waved goodbye, as shown by the ruffling feathers of our Carolina Wren.

My favorite car, ’92 Oldsmobile Toronado Trofeo. It was mine for 16 years and still holds a piece of my heart. This is not my photo, it was provided to me after restoration by new owner. 

I keep looking Outside to see if the hummingbird is still here.
