Day 152 - 31st May 2012 - Hummingbirds, Lupins and Twin Flowers

Thursday, grey and dismal looking out, temperature is +15. It would be really nice to wake up and watch one of those fabulous sunrises again instead of fog. They are giving drizzle with clearing. Back to work this morning, the day off is over. Today and tomorrow will be  hardworking, get things done kind of days. Have to get ready for the yardsale on Saturday, hoping to raise lots of funds for the Centre. It's the annual Townwide Yardsale which is gaining lots of people since it started about 4 years ago. Everyone loves a bargain. I on the other hand need to get rid of things not buy more. Pity help the poor person who ever has to clean out this house. Not that we hoard, Larry does a little (but I don't look in his rooms), but it seems we have  accumulated a lot. Every once in a while, I do a little purging.

Wet, foggy and rainy in the early morning yesterday but it did clear somewhat, although the fog remained most of the day. I accomplished a lot, but not sure it was the things I was suppose to do, oh well! More positive news and a better aura around me or so it seemed.
This little fellow was sitting on the fence post this morning.

And he gets ready to fly off again!
He returned for just a few minutes. They are so pretty with that iridescent green on their backs.
The lupins are pretty well in bloom. I like raindrops on flowers and .....
The birds were all chirping lunch time when I went for a walk, but I never did see any.
I find the twin flowers with my nose, you can smell their sweetness long before you see them. They are among the smallest and most delicate of the wildflowers.
Time for another cup of coffee and get the day rolling along. Enjoy your day!

    My absolute favourite wild flower is the twin flower! So tiny but so spectacular.
