August 4

Company coming around noon. Daughter, her son and sons friend. Possibly my brother and his friend. Going to be a busy weekend. The boys want to sleep in the tent so we will have to put that up this morning. There is also a big sale in the church hall this morning. Lots of second hand stuff and baked goods, etc. I will try to get to that, always a bit of fun.

The gardens are coming into their own now, these are parts of two areas.



I planted a pile of Lily bulbs this spring. They have started to bloom and I am well pleased. The smell is wonderful.


Bee on Monkshood. These plants are alive with bees this time of year.
Chickadee

Fox Sparrow
Nuthatch, lots of them and their young around now.
Young bird.

Hope you have a great time with all your family, OC. The photos are great as always, and yay, you have lilies too now. Mine are all finished sadly. Just to cheer you up, it's now been raining for 27 hours. Only light drizzling stuff today but still enough to depress the hell out of everyone.
