Some Bits & Bobs About The yard

Well hello there , seems like a long time since I have been here but it was just last Wednesday I did a  post lol !
The weather has been hot and humid but I have still been busy outside enjoying it all in my yard and gardens .

My Peonies are all in bloom now as is pretty much all my other flowers  and the smell about the yard is amazing . I have 3 of these plants spread about the gardens .

    The sky's have been so pretty to with all the big white puffy clouds and different layers of them .

           One of the many small aircraft we get flying about in this hazy sky  this time of year !

We have lots of nests around this year in our trees , this is Mrs Robins she was out for the day lol . 


 Despite the heat Miggs still likes to soak up a touch of sun every now and then , more like as soon as I bring out my lounge cushion she steals it lol !

The moon the other night Friday night was lovely it was a full moon  called the Strawberry moon and a minimoon  . What is a minimoon you may ask?  Well A minimoon refers to a full moon that is at or near apogee, the point in the satellite's orbit where it is farthest from the earth . This is essentially the opposite of a supermoon, which refers to a full moon that occurs at perigee, or the point where the moon is closest to Earth. minimoons look up to 14 percent smaller than supermoons and are slightly less luminous than regular full moons. Cool huh ?! 

I was in the garden yesterday  weeding and I turned around to hear a click click looked and it was this fellow . Dragon fly taking a break soaking up the warm sunshine . Thankfully he waited for me to run and get my camera and happily sat there with his pose on lol !

      I love the buttercups and long grasses in the fields  as they sway to and fro in the winds . 

                          We have lots of these vine flowers in the field as well soo pretty .  

Well that's about it for me for now just popped in  to cool off  in the AC for a bit and to share some of the bits and bobs that we have about here going on now  .  It is to cool down a little for the next day or so , so up goes my windows again for the fresh cooler air and breezes  and more nature loving . 
                                                             Until next time .

The dragonfly is a welcome sight. They gorge on mosquitoes.

We've been enjoying the lovely weather too, glad the humidity has gone. Baby wrens are chirping and chirping, can see them poke their heads out. Haven't seen a dragonfly yet but Murray did spot a Monarch. Great time of year.

Everything looks lovely in your part of the world. We too had some really hot days in NH the start if the week, but it has cooled down since then. Nice of the dragonfly to wait for its photo opp.
