Feels Like Summer


Here our weather has been so wonderfully warm and sun with cool breezes . The mornings have been perfect  and have been reminding me of  mornings we used to go camping , fresh breezes blowing gently through the rustling leaves  with the smell of wood smoke  floating through the air , birds singing as it echo's through the valley  forest and our yard and  the calmness that comes with it all as I sit on my back porch early every morning with my cuppa tea drinking it all in . Watching the hummers play around their feeders  I have close to the porch  chasing each other .  I have been enjoying the gardens watching them slowly flourish and the smell of the Lilacs in the air is amazing this year  , Miggs and I have been going for nice long walks in the mornings , then I have been puttering and taking photos .

          Our friendly Barn swallow I named Barney who fly's around our yard chit chatting then rests on the hydro wire in front of the house and chats his head off , I love the sound of them when they get  chatting .

This is the tiniest butterfly I have ever seen I could barely see him amongst the grass and the grass was short as Papa just mowed it the day before !

Dark clouds were rolling in threating our lovely sunny day but thankfully they drifted off to the east !

              Papa and his trimmer were getting ready for all the trimming of the heavy duty stuff I did around the gardens with the electric trimmer !

                                                          And Miggs … well Miggs is being Miggs !

                     The weather this morning is again gorgeous , doing laundry and hanging  it up out on the line then Papa and I are to tackle more of the  logs from trees that have been taken down , get them all cut up and stacked in the wood sheds ! Then enjoy the rest of this lovely summer like weather .

                                                                                  Until next time my friends !

Wonderful pictures, and the perfect way to start the day! We've had the same kind of weather, and I'd love for it to stay that this for awhile before the mugginess of summer comes.

We have swallows nesting in our gable end, I just can't believe the number of them flying in to roost at the end of the day! The sun is glorious here today and I am thankful to say that the washing is done, the ironing has been put away and I can now catch up on some serious blog reading. It's been a while! Have a wonderful week x

I haven't seen any butterflies here yet. They were scarce last year.

It is a glorious weekend and I'm taking advantage of it to put the gardens together. Just a quick break to visit you!

Is it not absolutely wonderful after such a long winter?

Willow said...

That header is awesome.

Amy at love made my home said...

Your butterfly pictures are lovely! So is your new header picture. I think that Miggs is thinking "well, the snow is definitely gone for now"!! xx

That small butterfly reminded me of some sort of frittillary. And glad the weather has been so good for you.

Beautiful butterflies and birds and doggies We haven't had Barn Swallows around here in years, which is so sad. They used to nest here!
