    I hope everyone had a great weekend. We got a bit of rain, but not enough.

    I did get some new pics… hodgepodge Monday for me.. This is our front yard, and our fire ring, which we can’t use right now as we had all those sunflowers come up..Hubby made the 4 hook for my hummingbird feeders and the hanging plants sure bring them in. Of course hubby’s balloon is in the back ground.

    We had some rain, a bit of thunder, but that was it. The cold front moved through late this afternoon then it got windy… now its calm and very cool out..

    Hope you are ok… and you don’t get any of the storms..

    Hey there, that bush with the orange berries is called a chokeberry I believe… The berries will turn red… we have these bushes all along our fence row at the farm.. They sure give it color..

    Here is a pic of our place from out on the lake.. we took this one last Sunday on a boat ride with friends…Ours is in the middle.. the neighbors to the right are never here… so other neighbor mows for them and we take care of their flowers…

    Hubby’s light blue/green boat… great for fishing… our dock is the white trimmed in blue one.

    Mary Ann, we love it out here… tonight there are no neighbors.  Everyone went home for the week.  It is so quiet… the wind chimes are tinkling…and a nice cool breeze is coming off the lake.

    There is nothing better.  Like I have said before it isn’t fancy. But its ours… I wouldn’t trade it for all the fancy , expensive places on all the bigger lakes. I love our lake.

    Marilyn, we got a bit of rain , some thunder…and thats about it.. In our rain gauge we didn’t even get a tenth of an inch.  Now our kids east of us into ohio got over an inch. 

    We were shopping today north of us…and it pounded up there.. My van got a good bath..lol

    This is our lake home… as soon as we sell the farm, we will be living out here… we have 3 lots, a 2 car garage, hubby has put up two storage sheds, and of course the mobile home.  We don’t need anything big, its just us two and the kids live close enough they don’t come to stay.

    What a wonderful neighbor and friend you are.  I applaud you and your hubby for doing this. I do hope your friend’s gets better.

    I know just seeing what you did for her makes her feel so much better.

    You did good !!!!!!!

    Hi Stella, oh don’t get discouraged. The birds are on their time table, not yours..lolol

    Our orioles were gone for almost 3 weeks, and I didn’t remember them being gone in the past years, but I guess they were. The bugs, and worms are so plentiful right now the birds are feasting.

    I did take down a couple of my feeders, and only have one double suet left out. I do want the birdies to favor mine food, but Mother Nature needs them for clean up more than I do.

    I am like you I need a road trip.  Even if its just to one of the parks around here.  The lake is quiet too.. only the swans make a daily appearance.  No ducks, nothing right now.  I guess they are all up your way.

    I just look at it this way, I will have seed ready for them when the cold weather gets here..lolol
