I'm Still Here

Hello ... Hope you all are enjoying your summer . I am for sure all though I would like more rain as it has been very dry here , seems all the rain clouds just horse shoe around our valley this year  but the temps haven't been to bad the odd day it has been hot and humid but sunny and by the evenings the winds pick up and are cool so that's ok and the odd morning has been chilly  , down to 11C or 52F , despite the lack of rain things have been growing well in the gardens and planters  and I have been watering them every other evening and early morning ..


                        Miggs has been rocking her mid summer doo .. all cool and collected .

 The feeders have been pretty quiet for a week as the birds transition into their final nesting for the season then in about a week or two all will be chaos  as they feast like mad before they take off for their migration .  Butterfly's have been flitting about from flower to flower .


Whilst grasshoppers jump and fly around like crazy and Cicadas to , buzzing like mad as are the Crickets chirping up a storm .

I have been busy with  this and that and well .. not much at the same time lol ! funny how that is ! Just enjoying the summer I suppose 😃.

So you see  I am still about and the odd time  I try to catch up on your blogs so I hope  all you out door bloggers are like me and  know when it is nice out you just want to be out there  soaking  it all up .. am I right ?! 

                                                    Until next time .

Glad you're still there! Is that really Miggs? If I could figure out how to send it to you, you could have some of our rain!

Hello, glad you are still here. Summer has turned a little cooler in our area. Love the photos of the pretty blooms, Miggs and the beautiful butterfly.

Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

We could do with some rain here in Suffolk, UK too.. we haven't had much of the wet stuff and what with quite high temps for the UK and sandy soil the poor garden has suffered a bit. Aww Miggs is such a pretty girl and that butterfly is stunning.

We've had no shortage of rain, including today.

We have a very rainy weekend here in Nashua, NH, Elaine and hopefully some will spread your way soon. Miggs looks cooler in her summer trim.

Summer is going by, some days more quickly than others. We've been enjoying the garden, getting in lots of walks down by the bay, playing with the grandkids, visiting them at the trailer and all sorts of little day trips here and there. I'm wondering if we will see any of the eclipse on Monday.
