Just checking in...

 Boy, it's been busy here and I really had planned a post long before now.

Everything is growing fast in the gardens; a little rain helped that. We have lots of veggies, blueberry bushes and dahlias new to our gardens this year. I'm a bit obsessed with the dahlias.

My latest dahlia blossom is a beautiful red and I can't wait to see her in full bloom.

This one is called Lavender Perfection.

We had a dead tree taken down last week. Thankfully, because it was caught up in some hydro lines we didn't have to pay a cent to have it taken care of. The crows miss it, though. They loved sitting in it and observing their world. We have them so spoiled.

And here's our latest visitor. Here one moment...gone the next. "Thanks for not eating my flowers."😁

Then there's Flo. She will never leave. Her life is too good here. She sits in my shed and fills her face all day long.

My honeysuckle plant is growing over the arbor that sits at the entrance to our woodlot.

I absolutely love it.


And a male bluebird that has stayed this year and he and his mate are nesting nearby. Isn't he gorgeous.💙

More dahlias in my shed.

I moved St. Francis from the front of the property to my new garden area.

And look at these two watching a chip dine on peanuts. It rained for hours last night and they stayed at the screen door licking the water off the door and watching cat tv.

They are truly the best of friends.

Our veggie garden is growing quite well although I keep getting cuc sprouts stolen by the local turkeys. Turkeys can be such jerks. Our lone turkey Kia found herself a friend a month or so ago and left. She does show up once in awhile but she is finally living a turkey life again. "Have a good life, dear Kia. Just stay out of my garden...please!"

I hope everyone is doing well. We are out of our third lockdown here, things are opening up again and life is getting a little closer to normal. 

Summer is here tomorrow night. Yah!

Happy Father's Day to all you wonderful dads out there. Enjoy your special day.

Be kind,
