What a weekend we've had. Sunny and warm. We had some friends here yesterday afternoon for wine, iced tea and snacks on the deck. It was a grand afternoon. In fact it got so hot we had to get umbrellas for a couple of people. The birds were about and at one point there was an eagle circling overhead. Although I got the camera out, it was much too high up to get a good shot. This morning himself asked me if I had gotten any pictures of the friends that were here.....erm, I never think of taking pictures of people. As you can see from these pictures, the sky was a beautiful blue.
Today I've been busy in the garden. Trying to get more weeding done and I'm starting to see some day light shinning through. What seemed like such an awesome task a few weeks ago is now looking like I've made strides. A friend phoned and asked if I wanted some asparagus roots. I said yes and now have them planted. Then I saw a white butterfly so ran inside to get the camera and was following it around for ages wishing it to land. In fact I was so intent on keeping an eye on it while walking behind it that I ran smack into a rose bush. Good thing I had long sleeves on as the thorns were stuck to my arms. It finally landed a couple of times and I managed some shots. Also got a picture of a fly. Not sure but it might be a hover fly.
