August Summer Weekend

The peaches are ripe on our peach tree!  Yay! and in the garden.....

We still have Sweetpeas and the Lilies are all out now and they smell so good, wish I had smell ovision on the blog.

Little baby owl is doing some grooming here, getting those feathers all ready to fly!


(who are you looking at, baby owl peeks at me! and below he looks so grown up now!)

We went on the Moss Street Art Walk and I found a rose plant above like our roses.

It was too crowded at the time we went and I did not feel good as so many people were pushing and shoving.

So I quickly took a few shots and I walked on the sidewalk where there were less people.

I think I was too hot and could not take the crowds of people there, must go later or on the second day.

We went to Saxe Point and I found a bee really loaded with pollen and some nice flowers below.

 We are finding a few more butterflies around.  I like the wildflowers that they are on also.

This is my favourite place, it is a farm field that the farmer has let some of the wild flowers grow up really big on it.

More boating pictures from Ron, my hubby. He took these last week on a boating trip with friends.

On Facebook you can see my Island Rambles Page where I post frequently. I post videos frequently on my Island Rambles YouTube Channel also. You can find me on Twitter here.
