JUST A FEW PHOTOS FROM AROUND THE YARD TODAY
Another mighty fine late August day. Spent my morning puttering in the gardens. If I don't keep the jungle trimmed back I'm afraid it will one day slip into the house unnoticed & grow itself right into my socks drawer. We have a large Sunburst Locust tree out front near our porch spreading it's ever reaching branches over our roof. Have to keep those branches trimmed back. This afternoon, Kelly & I helped neighbor Maureen get her brand spanking new Lenova computer up & running.
TRIMMING SOME TREE BRANCHES THIS MORNING
Sometimes, sitting here in the quiet splendour of our bright pine sunroom I occasionally wonder why we would ever want to leave here. I watch nature’s many birds flitting about among the tree branches. Blue Jays, Mourning Doves, Goldfinches, Black Cap Chickadees & a whole assortment of Sparrows. Sunlight filters through tall Pine trees dappling shrubs & flowers in it’s warm glow. Our front yard pond's trickling waterfall reaches my ears & I can see dancing water reflections on the underside leaves of our Locust tree. Soon, evening chills will remind me to turn on our cozy fireplace. Sometimes, I just sit here…………and wonder.
A RIPPLING REFLECTION IN OUR FRONT YARD POND
Most boats rest comfortably in the water while at anchor or tied up along side at a dock. Well, the majority of boats do that is, but it's not the norm where Ivan is. Here, boats spend part of their time sitting in the mud. Yep, just sitting there like beached whales waiting for some water to come rolling in & re-float them. Check out his post to see what a bunch of fishing boats look like out of water.....FUNDY

A SPRIG OF CLOVER IN THE GARDEN
GROANER'S CORNER:)) A male frog goes to a psychic. The psychic tells him, "You are going to meet a beautiful young girl who will want to know everything about you."
The frog becomes excited, "This is great! Will I meet her at a party?"
"No," says the psychic, "in her biology class."
