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 .

Our butterfly , bee and hummer garden is coming along wonderfully and is full of baby bumble bees collecting nectar , butterfly's have stopped on it but they really haven discovered it quite yet to just come to it they stumble upon it for now ! Hummers are busy with nectar feeders for now as their flowers here are close to blooming .

Well today has already started out to be a lovely summer day cool this morning birdies singing and chirping sun has risen and it is warming up  and Miggs is out side waiting for me so we can go for our walk and start our day out in the sun . I have no chores to do today so it will be a day of relax and enjoy my gardens . my birdies and critters and all with my Miggs beside me  unless she decides to give chase with a squirrel or two lol  .

                                                                    Until next time .

How lovely that the Mennonite family were happy for the photos to be taken. Lovely to see. Of course Miggs is as gorgeous as ever! My new lady, Tia, has just begun to turn on her back for a belly rub, she must be happy with us! Tia says hi to Miggs xx
