We had a lot of rain overnight during the week and found a leak in the ceiling. When the rain held up I went up on the roof with the roof patch and think I found where the water was getting in. I'll know for sure after the next heavy rain. Fingers crossed.
The crows have been bringing a young one. It hasn't gotten a handle on how to crow properly yet so it's quite funny to listen to the various sounds. Lots of bumble bees in the garden and they are quite large. There seems to be more butterflies than normal as well. Have yet to see a dragonfly this year.
There's a lovely soft wind this morning and I delight in the sound of the Aspens. Especially in the early morning when I have the world to myself. The rain has caused everything to explode. I love the buttercups and look forward to them every year. The path shown turns right at the end and comes out where the Buddha is sitting.
I also love these little blue cup like flowers. I don't know what they are called.
Some ferns near the stream.
Scottish Thistle, the bees adore it.
Lupins, lupins everywhere. Another plant loved by the bees.
I've started a variety of herbs to make smudge wands and they are coming along nicely. I have to take them out of the pots and plant them in the herb garden This may be a good day for it. I'm off now to put screening on the storage room window.
