Calgary Flooding

 
Such devastation in the Calgary area.
My girl and her family are fine and have not been affected by these floods.
Thoughts are going to all who are fighting this.
 
Hard to see such beautiful places that we have spent such happy times in in this terrible state.

Combermere Cousins

HB and I took a wee day trip to Combermere (about 2 hours from us)  Ontario.
His cousins live in the area and there were a few family heirlooms his mum left to them in her will.
It was a lovely day for a drive.
They have a lovely home by the water.
Enjoy!


We didn't get up in the plane but have been promised a trip around the lake in the boat next time.
Can you imagine the shots I could get???
 

The birds have a very fancy place to bathe.
 
 
Buzz. Such a sweet lil face. Reminds me of a cuddly teddy bear.




 
Just cuz


 
The cousins
 


We were dive (or is that dived?) bombed all afternoon by these guys!


Hey you gotta a rabbit under that hat HB?
 

 
The resident chipmunk
 









 


Thanks Burton and Bonnie. It was a terrific afternoon!

Mid June Garden Romp

You can see an old wooden door in the back.
It was from our front.
We have a lovely new door but me being me I felt I could repurpose this door.
And I did.
 

 I like to call this my strawberry ice cream peony.
Just makes you want a strawberry ice cream cone.


Look who is hiding in the plant barrel!

This bee was so laden with pollen that when he flew off the lupin he fell to the patio.
He was fine though and flew off with no problem.

 Apples forming
 
  Can you tell I'm loving this little vignette?

Here's a peak at our new shed colour.
Not completely finished.
Looks good with the yellow loosestrife.
Mr Easter Island Man is decked out in his new cowboy hat!

More peonies!

  One of my favourite hostas!
BIG AND BEAUTIFUL (not its official name)
 
 A White Peony
 
 Are these not the cutest pot rest feet?
The pot was my father in laws.
He loved my garden almost as much as I do.
 
 Self explanantory
 

Looks like our frog is back too!
