Oh The Day’s Of Summer


Have been magnificent . Warm sun shine cool breezes with the fresh smell of blooms in the air and hay fields  love it .  The evenings have cooled right off and been damp we so far have no humidity thank goodness  it reminds  me of  the kind of summers I remember as a kid on our farm .

I have been puttering in my gardens catching up on weeding after all the rain we had last week , trimming the gardens edges after cutting the grass pruning and trimming trees and bushes to tidy them up as they have grown so thick and full .  

I saw these lovely ladies and young man across the road from me and asked if I may take their photos as they were picking the heads off of their friends Increadaball bush  they obliged .

Hummers are busy with nectar feeders for now as their flowers here are close to blooming .

A Quiet Day .



Yesterday was our Canada day and a quiet one for me . I puttered , did some weeding , cut the grass , did a bit of laundry and took photos  and  Miggs and I went for our walk early in the morning . Thank you to all of you who sent get well wishes to Miggs, she is doing good now , I figured it was just a cramp in her large back leg muscle that threw her for a loop for a day but she is back to her old self again , I told her she has to take it easy now and no running hard and fast to chase things lol . ok like that’s gona work , who am I kidding lol !

Any who  it was a over cast day more like a washed out sky for most of the day  at least for photos  and it had  the odd pop of sunshine here and there , I had my own air show for Canada day fly over our house and valley for about half an hour as these 4 Harvard’s  were testing the sky’s and taking a tour  . They are the  Canadian Harvard Aircraft  Association stationed in the town of St Thomas  at their airport which is  about a 38 min drive  from us  we are lucky to get so many different large and small aircraft fly over head .

I was able to get quite a few photos of these guys as they did a lot of fly overs  . It was amazing  , I do like air craft especially older ones  !

                I then looked for other things to photograph as they were done for the day and went back to their base !

                             Taking a break in the gardens waiting for his Mama or Papa with  his next pickings lol !

One never knows what one will see here in our valley and back yard  almost every day is a surprise and a wonder . So quiet days can be good at least they are here lol . Well not to quiet with all the birds and  baby birds making all their noises of feed me now I am starving but nevertheless wonderful .!

                                                                              Until next time my friends .
