A Moth and other stuff.

The incredibly beautiful perfume coming from the Honeysuckle wafted around me as I walked outside this morning.   It's one of those scents that I wait for each summer.  The Roses, Peonies and Phlox are wonderfully scented as are some of the other flowers but I think the Honeysuckle tops them all.

We've had a few summer like days but now it's turned chilly again.   I'm debating whether to light the wood stove.   Seems a waste of wood as it is suppose to be summer after all.   Still, I'm feeling chilly. 

There have been some young Waxwings after the berries on the Saskatoon Berry tree.   I've tried to get a picture but the tree is only a few feet from the window and when they see me, they fly off.   The Black Currant tree is full of berries again this year.   I'm hoping to pick them before the birds decide to have a feast.   They're not quite ripe enough yet though. 

I noticed a lot of moths around the back door this morning.   Couldn't figure why until I remembered that I had left the porch light on all night.   Here's a big fellow with a head full of fur.

Some pictures of the garden.

That is a beautiful moth! Your garden is lovely, despite the weather. I hope you get some more sun.

I have to say that despite the disappointing Summer, your garden is looking great! Summer keeps coming and going over here too. i'm wondering if we are in for an early Fall.
