Beautiful sunny day here. I've been all morning building a raised bed up higher and adding more soil. My body feels a wreck! I am happy that I've finally started doing things in the garden that I've been putting off. I figure, if I keep at it, I should have most of it finished off in a week or so. A friend of Rogers from Nova Scotia will be arriving on Sunday, going back Wednesday. I think they've seen each other just about every year since they were in boarding school. I do enjoy his visits and as always I expect there will be much bantering and arguing. Rogers birthday is on Tuesday so I'm very glad he will be here for that. I expect I'll have a few people in for a bit of a party.
We went to the corner store last night to pick up a few odds and ends and much to my chagrin, when I walked through the door, what did I see......Christmas items for sale. I just couldn't believe it, it's only September for heavens sake.
I took a break from the gardening this morning and decided to get the camera and see what I could find around to photograph. Much to my surprise, while walking around, I nearly got knocked over by a Butterfly. He went by me and landed on a Cone flower. Here I had thought I'd seen the last of them weeks ago.
The Butterfly Bush is in bloom now and the smell is just wonderful.
Took this picture of Malachi last night while the dear boy was having a snooze.
