|The Daily Bucket is a nature refuge. We amicably discuss animals, weather, climate, soil, plants, waters and note life’s patterns.
We invite you to note what you are seeing around you in your own part of the world, and to share your observations in the comments below.
Each note is a record that we can refer to in the future as we try to understand the phenological patterns that are quietly unwinding around us. To have the Daily Bucket in your Activity Stream, visit Backyard Science’s profile page and click on Follow.

Yesterday 7/16/21 was another dark day in the annals of the Daily Bucket. I’m about to head out for the day again so I decided to post a string of pics taken over the past couple days. Hope they brighten your day. Our internet has been down for I don’t know how long and just came back on. Hope it lasts long enough for me to get this done.
EDIT: 7/17/21. It didn’t last. We just got another big sky dump that lasted nearly 2 hours. Sure wish one or two of these drenchers would fall over the burning mountain region!
Just back from a failed attempt to get over to dad’s place. It is raining so hard the Wagon Trail is flooded in a number of places. Safety of home always feels good. Creeks are raging, river is high. Rain or not I see there are at least six hummers buzzing the feeders. Fun stuff to see on another soggy, dreary, “flood alert” day. As I’m writing this the rain has begun again and internet is back out so I can’t even save what I’ve done. It is getting really dark and we’re still short of noon on this Saturday. This is turning into one of those ‘tie a string around your finger, then try to remember why you did that’ moments.
