Country Valley Living Through Our Lens

Monday, September 1, 2014



WOW ! September already ? where does the time go .  It is humid here today and over cast with  chance of rain and thunderstorms later . This day is the Labour day holiday  for  many of us and an extra day Papa has to putter or just relax .

                                            The sunrise yesterday was pretty shining through the  wisps  of clouds over the valley  .

The birds are feasting like crazy every day at the feeders and some are even snacking on what’s left of my cone flowers !

I forgot to share this,  a while ago there were these two ladies dressed in their traditional clothing in the evenings  that deliver home made backed goods by horse and wagon , I had to get a photo of them ! .

                           I just loved seeing them and hearing the horses clippity clop of his hooves on the road !

             Lots of farmers are busy in the area getting their harvests done and brought in , lots of tractor's/ combines  in the fields and lots of farm hands out picking the crops to , more travel  on the country roads this time of year as they travel from field to field . The sweet smell of corn crops and bales of hay in the fields is wonderful !   The next full  moon will be the  Harvest moon and it will be early this year  , if your like me an love the full moons then look for the Harvest full moon on September the 8th –9th . I am looking forward to fall colours , cool fresh breezes and lots of fall photos lol !

                                          Thank you to all for your prayers and blessing for our Grandma .

                                                                   Until next time my friends !

Just A Little Note


Hello every one . I am still around , just have been fighting an ear infection so not been feeling up to much .

We  got word the other day  that Papa’s Grandma his dad’s mum  is not doing well she is in intensive care  since last week  so Papa and I made the three hour trip up and spend most of the day with her yesterday  . Yes I did ask if it was ok for me to be near her as I have an ear infection the Dr’s basically said  how to put this , the poor old girl is on so much meds and morphine that it is just a matter of time   Papa’s Grandma is 94  and hasn’t been able to live a normal life for years as she has been ill and fighting the good fight and has told us many times  that that’s it  she wants to go   as she feels she isn’t  or hasn’t  been living the last few years of her life like she wants . It sounds cruel here but I think for her it is better that she reaches for the heavens and the man upstairs now realizes she needs peace  , dignity and a  freed  sprit .

We love you Grandma and will miss you , we will never forget you  for you will always be in our hearts and memories !


                        This is Grandma  3 years ago at  her birthday party  laughing and enjoying family   !

                   May you have peace soon Grandma  and do all in the after life of the heavens that you didn’t get to do in this one !.

I Went Out Into The Fields Today



To see what I could find ! Ok got that song in your head yet lol not exactly the same words but you get the gist of it lol ! Yes I went out in the fields again today , the weather was amazing sunny with bright blue sky’s  a few white puffy clouds and cool breezes .  I noticed every time I want to take photos of butterfly’s , bees and flowers  it is always breezy and trying to capture them in between each blow of wind is a bit tricky I might add to lol !  This field is right beside our house .

AUGUST 2014 (24 of 46)

I am pleased to see our Monarchs have returned in more numbers this year ,so far I have counted 30 since the beginning of summer and that is a lot compared to the past year or so as the numbers of them declined . I had 5 out there with me today all fluttering about from wild flower to wild flower  but they didn’t want to get together for me so I could take more then one at a times photo , oh well guess ya cant have everything can ya !

AUGUST 2014 (25 of 46)

                        Lots of these little butterfly’s around in the field as well as the white Cabbage moths  all so pretty !

AUGUST 2014 (36 of 46)
