Day 161 - 9th June 2013 - Fog, Mallards, Robins and Flowers

Cloudy Sunday morning but the blue sky is parting the clouds and it looks like it will be a fine day. The birds are beginning to sing and move around. A roam in the hood is definitely on the agenda for today and maybe we will get a little farther a field later today. Larry has plans to plant his tomato plants. Glad he didn't plant them Friday night, I'm afraid they would have been beaten down. He's got some broccoli plants to put in too,  and I think almost done with the planting, next will be the constant job of weeding.
 I'd like to wish a very Happy 40th Anniversary to a wonderful couple I've known forever.  Years have come and gone when I didn't see them but they will always have a soft spot in my heart. Happy Anniversary Karen & Edwin, may you have many, many more years together.
It was definitely an inside day, I did everything I said I would and then some. Larry hid most of the day in his building which was good, since it's easier to work around the house without him underfoot. Finally after supper the rain ended and the fog rolled in with a bit of mist. I headed out around the hood for a good long walk. When I got home Larry and Lexi took off for her evening drive and run and I got stuck doing the supper dishes - oh well he did cook - fried clams and fries, which were very good.
 I startled some Mallards.
 Into the fog they fly.
Myrna had more by her place - lots of males.
 Thick fog - I've been trying to catch the baby beaver but no luck so far. Soon I hope before he grows up!
 Lois' gardens never let me down.
 She always has so many beautiful flowers.
 The Lupins on the road side didn't make out so well in the heavy rain today.
Mr. Robin looks quite wet as well.

Enjoy your day!

  1. So the bed is changed floor cleaned whilst I waited patiently for my blog. Kasey was not impressed and it took some coaxing to get her out of bed. Happy 40th to Karen & Edwin. Nice photos of the ducks. Lois has a spectacular array of flowers. Well off to get a bit more done. I see you haunting the hood today ;)
