June 15th.

Yesterday the weather turned glorious after lunch. Back to summer conditions once again, and suppose to be beautiful all weekend...whoo hooo! I heard on the radio that there were a lot more black bears on the go this year than last. Fortunately we haven't had any around this house so far this season. Apparently, in a community very near here, one killed a dog and another got into someones house. This is always a worry at certain times of the year. Although, I must admit, it's a lovely sight to see one of these beautiful creatures sitting in the herb garden munching away, but not something you want to fool with.

While in the city last weekend I took some pictures of the colourful houses in the old part of town. They are often referred to as "Jelly Bean" houses because of the bright colours. These are just a few of the many.

This is my daughters house. It's over a hundred years old and one of the first ones built in the area.

Lovely streets full of character. Bears close by would be scary but wonderful too. I think they are amazing animals though of course they need to be treated with great respect! (I would just love to get a photo of one)

lol, In one way I've been hoping one will come around so I can get a picture but on the other hand it's a worry when they are. When I think of the great pictures I could have gotten this past few years as they were right by the deck sometimes but didn't have a camera at the time.
