|NOW WHAT TROPICAL PARADISE COULD THIS BE|
Well where to go this morning I thought as I hauled myself out of my recliner. Hadn't been done around the Grand Bend area for awhile so that's where we headed. Took the scenic country road route.
|WELL IT'S GRAND BEND ONTARIO OF COURSE|
|AN ANGRY WAVE DAY ON LAKE HURON|

Our fine weather day amazingly enough continued and with temps in the mid 60's it was nice to be outside in the gardens again. Took our new mower for a twenty minute spin around the yard and that took care of this week's clover cutting. Weatherman's predicting more rain again on Saturday.
Glanced up from my sunroom computer this afternoon and there was a Squirrel sitting on the suet feeder I had hung underneath the bird station platform. No, not Little Red this time, it was Blacky the black Squirrel. Blacky is about twice the size of Little Red and it's able to get a further up the feeder poll than Red. And that is how Blacky got on to the hanging suet feeder. Moved the feeder to the lower bird feeder platform which solves the Blacky problem but now the Crows can get at it again. I don't know why I just don't save myself the frustration and take the whole bird station down and forget about all this bird stuff.

And photos from Spencerport New York today. Hurd Orchards in Holley NY to be exact. It was Hurd's annual Strawberry Shortcake Luncheon described by Hurds as and event with big bowls of strawberries with whipped cream and hot, freshly made biscuits... pitchers of daisies on farm tables nestled between summer salads and fresh breads with herb butters and jams. Below are a few photos from Kelly's Blackberry phone at Hurd Orchards.

- When I found out my toaster wasn't water proof... I WAS SHOCKED!
- What's orange and sounds like a parrot? A carrot!
I too have any memories of Grand Bend always a hopping place when we were younger. Love your pictures of the lake and Bonnie Doon Manor . Saw it was for sale earlier this year? But looks like they are back in operation.ReplyDelete
Nice picture from Kelly and her mom. Nice that she can go visit with her.
Good picture of Kelly and her Mom. I see they both like to wear bright clothing.ReplyDelete
My favorite days to be on the Lakes were what I called the "busy water" days. Wonderful pictures. Thanks for letting us go there! I am glad you keep on fighting for the birds. Squirrels and crows. Maybe the crows are a passing problem, but not the squirrels. Forever outsmarting us. Glad to see such a good picture of Kelly and her mom. I'm sure they enjoy the time together. Hope you get some happy weather again tomorrow.ReplyDelete
Beautiful weather your way! Rain, rain and more rain over here in the Ottawa Valley. It cleared this evening so the men are out sitting around a bonfire feeding the mozzies. More rain moving in tonight. Beautiful flowers!ReplyDelete
All of the photos were great, however the one of Kelly and her Mom is just lovely.ReplyDelete
Those are some angry looking waves on Lake Huron. I like the fenced off areas on the dunes. Yes Kelly's lunch sounds delicious and that's a great picture of her and her mom.ReplyDelete
So enjoyed ALL the pictures. So how much longer will Pheebs have to mourn his loss - he looks pitiful with his head thrown back...isn't it? Goodness, that is one very angry puddle out there. Have never seen a farm field with so many colors - can you explain?ReplyDelete
Kelly will be home a week from Sunday. And Pheebs (female) often tips her head back like that when she wants me to rub her tummy while driving along. I wondered about all those colors too. Had seen it in a few other fields as well.Delete
The only thing I miss about work is the paycheck. No more drama, politics, or being asked to do the impossible!ReplyDelete
