After The Rain


Hello all .

Not much happening here at the Cove . We have had hot sunny days and finally some rain this morning with the odd thunderstorm. Every time they say it is to rain I swear it goes around us and we don't get a drop ! . I love the smell of everything this time of year after it rains , the sweet smell of flowers come alive after  and all of mother nature comes out from undercover and all is active once again , nothing better then the nectar from the sky's for the gardens .

The sun peeks out every now and then and there is a cool breeze from the south that carry's the smell of   lake Erie in it , I love that smell to . I went out side and took some photos as I sat on our porch in the back .


               My Knock out Rose Bush has so many buds just ready to pop !



    Have you ever seen a dog smile ? Well our Miggy does  as you can see here  lol ! She is laying under my lounge chair !


           This is Molly our little Wren that loves to nest in this bird house Papa built two years ago , it sits in our centre garden !


                                      She is soo busy in and out building her nest !


                                                  Molly knows I am taking her photo !


This  guy was busy courting and trying to attract this little ladies attention ! She didn’t seem to thrilled to me lol !


                                                      PSSST ! Has he left yet ????


                          It’s a daily giggle  and awe  at all the nature that's around here !

                                  Until next time , hope you have a good day !

These photos are great. Miggy has the most soulful and pretty brown eyes. Papa's bird house attracted my attention. Just loved it. Your flowers are gorgeous and those birds, love them too. Nature is very entertaining isn't it. I often see one dove chase the other around the deck, their little legs going 90 miles an hour. Makes me laugh every time.

I had a knock out rose for a couple of years. Completely disease free and never saw any aphids or other pests on it. I had planted it in a spot where a hydrangea was previously planted so by the second year the rose was crowding the hydrangea. So, I just dug it out and threw it away. I used to grow lots of roses but none were as pretty or as easy to grow as this knock out rose was. It looked just like your photograph.

We picked up a little "Benji" looking dog at the dog pound and he smiled. He really smiled big and showed his teeth. You could tell him to smile and he would. He also loved to run.

She is so adorable. And that house is fantastic! Don't tell Miggy that I thought a bird was more adorable than she was. In fact, that's not what I said. Miggy reigns!
