A Bit Of This & That


Hello everyone .

Hope your week has been good to you as has the weather !

Not to much going on here at Our Country Cove just the same old same old … that’s a good thing in our books lol !

Our lawn tractor is in for repair .. a friend who is also our neighbour down the road is taking care of that for us .

Miggs and I have just been puttering and taking our daily walks as the mornings have been nice , cool and dewy .  Sunshine during the day with a bit of humidity and cool breezes . Nights have been cool to .

Summer 2013 (7 of 14)

The gardens are doing well all though some flowers are done for the season whilst others are just full of blooms . These sunflowers are doing wonderfully considering we never planted any lol  We figure they were planted by birds or more then likely one of the critters !

Summer 2013 (12 of 14)

So we decided to leave them and let them grow and maybe I can get some sunflower seed harvest from them ! Talking about gardens , Papa is slowly but surely preparing and building my raised veggie garden for next year !

A few little birdies have been playing on our fire pit amongst the tree branches that came down in one of the odd wind storms we have had !

            We put the branches there to dry out . I think the birdies are playing hide and seek lol ! Hope they can find each other as they seem to blend in pretty good here with the branches lol !

                                                        1,2,3 ready or not here we come !

Looks like some nice sunflowers in your garden soon. None for us this year, except one little one that a critter planted in one of the big pots. We are having a great time with our family from BC ... camera getting a good workout :)

Like you we are enjoying several days of warm sun and cool breezes--But humidity is supposed to return from vacation next week--I'd hoped it stay away a little longer! :-)

Enjoy your weekend!!

I am envying you those cool days...

Not happening here, but in a few weeks it's all over for another year.

Your platycodon are lovely, and they seem to love the heat, I need to get some next year.

Nicer weather is here too, Elaine, and so it may be time to resume walks. I have been walking on cardio equipment at the local "Y" just not outdoors in the recent heat and humidity.
