We seem to have acquired a flock of starlings. Dad said there was an adult feeding four juveniles. I later saw an adult at the suet feeder that has the suet with sunflower seeds in it, feeding her young, who were perched on the branch above. Then I saw several more adults. There were some little birds at the bird feeder, including chickadees. I saw a chipmunk underneath. I saw a groundhog go by the container that holds the compost, by the shed. I'm sure the groundhogs have dens under the shed.
I arranged with S.M. to go to lunch with her at 1:00 pm., and then help her with computer things.
Later: The road I take to S.M.'s house was closed because of construction. I didn't know how to get around the construction. I went to the restaurant and called her a couple of times from there. She finally answered. She had been having a long conversation with her sister P.M. She met me at the restaurant. We had lunch, and then I followed her on the alternate route to her house. We did computer things.
When I got home, I took pictures of the roses and cut some. 'Mme. Plantier' is starting to bloom. 'Mme. Isaac Pereire' is blooming. I cut a flower of that. It's got a strong, pleasant raspberry rose scent.
