Day 154 - 2nd June 2013 - Geese, Canoes and a Cedar Waxwing

Kind of overcast this morning, but they are giving clearing for later and sun. Temperature is +15. Took my coffee out to the deck but not a bird singing this morning, just total quiet. Will try to get a few things done around here before it warms up more. It was not a good night for sleeping so I'm dragging myself this morning. Maybe we'll get out for a drive later and find some birds. Larry I'm sure will head up to the garden to do some more planting. Rain and back to work tomorrow so take advantage of today.
I can't believe I'm going to say this...but it might have been too hot yesterday, when we came home from town in the afternoon it was +37.2. Being Maritimers we don't move as fast as the rest of the world, so maybe we just need to take our weather in small doses and roll into the heat gently not smack dab into it! All is good, summer is now upon us - not official for a few more weeks but we should be ok to finish planting gardens etc. Yardsale went well, but I don't think we made as much as last year. Evening was rather laid back, nothing exciting at the end of a busy day. There are a bunch of people who worked together and go on canoeing every year, the last few years they have put in here and I was lucky enough to catch them again this year. It was fun to watch them set off and head down the lake yesterday morning.
 They are looking like they'd like to have a little independence!
 Mom's still the boss.
If you look really close you'll see the male hummingbird enjoying the nectar from the solomon seal.

 It was a great day to be on the lake - canoeing or kayaking.

Cedar Waxwing hit the kitchen window. Even though my fear of birds is subsiding, I'm not ready to pick them up, Larry acted as doctor.

Enjoy your day!

  1. Another of Larry's talents ...the bird whisperer. Garden is done other than a few rocks here and there. Hard work but I am out drinking my coffee enjoying it lol 10 ranger loads later :). The astilbe appear to adjusted to the move. Iam off to Denna's later to pay may respects to a faithful pet/companion. Have rake shovel pan of white stone two totes of top soil a couple shrubs and a few annuals. The little ladies are going to help plant more annuals. Then a date with laundry. You have a good day we will keep you posted on t-rex our turtle ;)
