We've had a busy week with work around the property, friends dropping by for a visit, playing with the grandittles and tending flowers that are now starting to show some wear. This time of year the last of the blooms are opening on some flowers while others are starting to fade away.
cutesying up the mouse house.
I've had many birds to the feeders; mostly my favorite chickadee.
The Northern Flicker -love those spots.
Of course, our local crows are here everyday.
I watched today as a mourning dove had a scuffle with one of our resident chipmunks.
She was furious and flapped her wings while running towards it.
I guess they both wanted the same sunflower seed.
The weather has been warm but wet. We've had a few thunderstorms over the last few days but they have passed and the heat and humidity is back once again.
Summer's not over yet. :)
Here's my favorite photo of the week.
My lovely friend, Sue from http://proseccoandpolkadots.blogspot.ca/and my trusty, older friend, Nellie. She may need some face paint and a tuck here and there but you can't beat her for reliability. ;-)
"Sue, you look like you OWN that tractor. Next time you'll have to take her for a spin."
A lovely gift from my friend.
A bouquet of fresh kale and her garden flowers.
And, some delicious yellow cherry tomatoes from her veggie patch.
The sun is being enjoyed this morning in between the downpours.
loved more than words can describe.
