Let's talk about the weather and what's going on shall we?
The weather has been a mix of sunshine and showers. Lots of showers!
The sun is shining in the above photo.
It comes and goes.
You can see the rain falling in this photo quite well. (last Friday, the first day of summer) A heavy rain and strong winds blew up quite a little storm. Then, just as quickly, it went away.
The sun came out shortly after as you can see above.
I went to a yard sale the week before last. The gentleman had an antique store so I hoped to find some goodies. I came home with a vintage plate, two iron stone dishes and a broken butter mold.
The deer have been around a lot.
I enlarged this so you could see the doe and her fawn.
These two have been coming closer to the house each week.
There is a buck that stands at the top of the hill surveying his kingdom on a lot of days or evenings. And, there is another deer that likes to cross through our yards and stop for a little "salad" of Hosta leaves on the way through. I'm getting a little annoyed!
When I came home last evening at dusk a deer had just crossed the road, out of our yard, and was standing on the side. That was the 3rd deer on the road on my way home!
I'm always wary.
The favourite 'salad' of the deer!!
The iris have bloomed. Mine are all purple.
Unfortunately the wind and rain last Friday knocked them down.
I captured the full strawberry moon on Saturday evening as it rose in the sky. This is the best my camera can do. I should have been down at the river to catch it's reflection on the water.
Look what I found!
These are some of a box of 29 cups and saucers I found in the attic at my mother-in-law's house. I had boxed them up after they didn't sell at a yard sale. Some of them are so pretty!! I think I'll have to make room for them and give away the rest.
I think a certain 2 1/2 year old will enjoy playing with this when he comes to visit soon.
Yes, it is a vintage garage that was Murray's when he was a boy.
And we also have this...
The Happy Time Farm! Including all the animals!
Oh, I think Ewan and Eli are going to love visiting at Grammie's and Grampie's don't you?
So, you see I've been busy behind the scenes of my blog photos. I have a lot to do to prepare for our daughter and her family's visit.
It's calling for rain most of this week and the long holiday Canada Day weekend is coming up too. I hope it's nice on the Monday, July 1, for the events of Canada Day.
Here's a little red and white celebration early...
...I made strawberry shortcake for dessert tonight.
The berries are from Nova Scotia but the U-picks are opening up around here now too. I'll have to get some to make jam. YUM!
I am trying to get around to visit most of you and make comments when I can. I've cut back on my blogposts a lot the past 3 weeks but I'm still here and will post when I can.
Enjoy these beautiful summer days.
