Pleasant Rainy Visit to the Rhododendron Garden
It’s looking more and more like spring at the Rhododendron Garden. Portland has been catching up with our precipitation amounts. Today was quite rainy.
The flowers are quite cheerful, and seem so happy with rain on them.
And the ducks seemed quite happy, as well.
The gadwalls were making a ducky noise that sounded like they were saying, “Rain. Rain. Rain.”
Okay, my Gull I.D. is horrific, but I’m going to say…Herring Gull??? Legs were definitely pink. Primaries were not deep black and not same color as back. Bill was medium-ish, bright yellow. Iris pale yellow. Any thoughts?
Another angle, different lighting.
Erm. That’s a rained-on duck.
What a pleasant, rainy day at the Rhododendron Garden!
