It's been so long that I hardly know where to begin. We had beautiful summer weather for a while but now it's turned wet, overcast and much cooler. It's been like this for a week and is suppose to continue on into next week. We had a hard frost one night and although covered, I lost two tomato plants and my basil. Himself has been having some health problems but seems to be much better at the moment.
Let me see now......This week with the rain we had a leak in the living room ceiling so in the wet and cold we were both on the roof trying to find where it was coming in. We patched up any suspicious places and it looks like we managed to find the guilty one as it hasn't leaked since. Then, my old washer finally bit the dust and died. This is all sounding much too depressing so here's some good news:
All the plants and trees are about three weeks ahead and growing beautifully. The birds are very active these days. I imagine they are nesting. The squirrels are here all the time and are quite bold. And..........drum roll please..........himself is going to Spain for a few weeks in July and I'll have lots of time alone. Now, I know this may sound terrible to some but when you are retired and are together 24/7, one needs some space and time to oneself. At least I do.
The pine grosbeaks are here once again. They are lovely birds. The male has been here with his lady every day.
First Bee of the season.
Freya and Frankie on a good day.
What cats do on a miserable day.
Can't finish with out adding one of the little imps.
The Saskatoon berry trees and Wild Cherry Trees are all in blossom so things are looking up.
