July 25th. Hot and Sunny

The weather has once again turned to summer. Very warm and sunny. Yesterday afternoon, at the spur of the moment, Roger decided to go visit an actor friend who is doing plays in Trinity for the summer. He spent the night there and returned home at lunch time. Said they had a good night filled with laughter. I on the other hand had a good night as well, TV off, radio off, just the sound of the wind making the Aspen leaves sing. Twas wonderful.

I might have company coming in a week or so, depending on the weather. My grandson is flying into St. John's on the 1st. of August and he and his mother may come out for the Seafest weekend here. Also, my brother is flying in from the states on the 2nd. of August so I am hoping he can find the time to come here for a visit. Then a friend of ours from Nova Scotia may come in September for a few days. Looking forward to seeing all of them.

I've finally come to the conclusion that I can't water the flowers and take pictures at the same time. I say this because every time I water I see bees and butterflies, etc., drop the hose and go running for the camera. Come dashing back and creature has gone. I'm not going to do it again, it can get exhausting, lol. I did get a few pictures today, not with hose in hand mind you, just wandering around checking on what needed to be done.

Young Woodie, waiting for parent to bring food. I did take a picture of the parent pushing food in the young ones mouth but was so excited that my hands were shaking and it was a complete blur.

Spider again.

A Rose

This is a little squirrel. I expect it's one of this years young.

Don't you always see a great photo when you don't have the camera ready - or you've got the wrong lens on . Then when you have the camera all ready there's nothing in sight to photograph!
