a frivolous and fun day with family
After a failed attempt at visiting Preservation Park, Robb and I took his parents to the Oakland Rose Garden. He caught up with his family, while I wandered around and poked my camera into the private parts of roses, and checked up on a couple of my letterboxes.
The morning had been overcast, but the sun was gloriously bright while we were in the garden.
On the way out, I noticed the hummingbirds dive-bombing this fellow.
He very obligingly swooped down in an attempt to catch a squirrel, and alighted quite close to us. I'm not sure who was more surprised about this encounter, the Cooper's Hawk, or the humans.
There are more serious things that I could be discussing on the blog today, but I really would rather write about a lovely day with family.
