Day 164 - 12th June 2013 - Flowers and Ferns

Off today! Rah! No sitting on the deck this morning - it's pouring down rain.  Lots to do. We are going away on the weekend so I need to get everything ready today so we can pull out after work on Friday. Got a housesitter all booked - hope he does some housework! Heading to Freeport - that's Nova Scotia not Maine, should be fun - visit with friends, some gardening for Larry and birding/photography for me. It's a great place to take photos and roam around. Going to do the brownies for the base of the Death by Chocolate Trifle to take with us: I'll put it together Thursday night or Friday morning, might do some more baking if the weather stays this way. Lexi's suitcase is all packed so I just need to deal with Larry and I.
It was a wet miserable day on Tuesday, actually doesn't look much better for the rest of the week. So we are just going to close our minds to that, think positive  and maybe the weather will turn around. It was  a long day, busy at work, then back to town for our AGM. I find it hard to get moving once I stopped and there was just enough time to set down with a cup of tea after supper that made it hard to get back up and go out again. A good meeting.
 Hidden in the forest - Lady Slippers.
 Pretty in pink
 The Hummingbird loves to sit at the top of one of the apple trees.
 Ferns are wonderful these days.
 I really like the pink clover - weed or not?
A Butterfly rested on the top of a fern.

Enjoy your day!
