It was anything but quiet around here yesterday. We had such very strong winds that it even blew the barbecue grill off the deck! Let me tell you when it hit the house it made such a loud noise that I wasn't sure what had happened. No damage though...thank goodness.
This little hummingbird just decided to sleep through it all. He was on the tree outside my kitchen window. Totally oblivious as to all that was going on around him. I was worried that he would be blown out of the tree.
Today is a much better day so I managed to get another one of the bags that I have been making photographed. I quite like the color of this one. Something a bit lighter for summer.
Every year in February I always order my summer hanging basket from Edgewood Flower Farm. They are ready for pick up around the 1st of May or so. Last weekend I picked up this years basket. We have it on a cart right now as it is still a bit to cool to leave it outside over night. It makes it very easy to just wheel it in and out as it is very heavy, even more so after it's watered. In a couple of weeks it will be hung on our front porch. By summer it will be enormous and in full bloom. Of course once again I will fret about it being to heavy for the hook and wondering if it will come down. Never has yet but silly me I still continue to worry!.
This lovely cow was out at the farm and of course we are never without a camera. She looked up just as we were taking her picture. I thought she looked so lovely and peaceful chomping on some grass. I quite like cows. I remember as a young girl growing up in Scotland I always wanted to have a Highland cow as a pet! I can just imagine my poor mother telling me why this was not possible and I am sure I must have kept insisting. She must have gotten through to me though as I don't remember ever having one!
Well now I am off to get some lunch and have a putter about in the garden. After all the wind yesterday who knows what I might find!
Enjoy your day.
