Okay, I admit that the title of this installation sounds like a bad department store flyer premise, but it was the best I could come up with!
We woke to another misty morning which presages a fairly decent day. It gives an eerie sense of calm and isolation which is both comforting and disconcerting.
We've been forced to patiently wait for spring to arrive and I'm horrified to realize that June is coming to an end and I've only updated the blog once this month.
We are experiencing an influx of adorable golden finches and have purchased specific bird seed to entice them in to your yard and we've also invested in a hummingbird feeder. It was successful, but the hummingbirds seem to have fled our property. Additionally on the wildlife front, Ron has been matching wits with a wily raccoon (nicked named Rocky, of course - an homage to the Beatles!) He's not around all the time, but we don't want him getting any ideas about a cozy winter nest in our lovely home. I was, I want to say yelled at, but it's not quite right...thrummed at by a hummingbird yesterday. I was at the front of the house checking out the garden and he hovered at face level just out of arms reach, staring directly at me...it was the most interesting thing.
Happy Canada Day to all of you! We're hoping that you get a sunny beautiful weekend.
