Of birds and apricots

Our migrants have arrived.  Not a great picture, but we had this beautiful male western tanager come by for a drink of water.  This picture doesn't do it justice from the kitchen window.  
After remarking that we had yet to see black-headed grosbeaks, we had a pair come to the feeder, and they are hanging around for now.

Pat picked up a bountiful basket because they also had boxes of apricots, and we split a box.  I was able to replenish my larder with two batches of jam and froze enough for another batch.

Made my first ever upside-down cake...apricot of course.  It was very tasty.
