Happy Solstice to everyone!

This “summer” is going to be a hot one.  Already the temperatures are in the 90’s F.  The highest temperature last summer was typically 88F.  I was dripping by the time I got back to the car!

Happy weekend!

  1. Thoroughly enjoying your lovely bird photos again! And that turtle is really cute too! We are excited at my home these days as our little wren house was chosen by the wrens to be their residence this year. They are busy with their eggs now. Wrens are very talkative and seem to enjoy interaction with their neighbors including humans. They are just a little bit bigger than hummingbirds but have huge voices. Once they choose a residence they tend to come back year after year so we are extra pleased to have been chosen.
    Happy to hear nature walks and sunshine are back in your daily routine.
