First of the Season!

 Was out working in the garden, weeding, weeding & more weeding!  That's what happens when you go away for a week!  Spotted these 4 raspberries... & a few more that I gave to the dog!
Will have to pick quite a few more to have enough to make a batch of jam!

Early Morning Isla

I got up early several mornings & went shell & seaglass hunting.  On the way back to the hotel I spotted these hens & rooster waking up the neighborhood!

Punta Sur

A small part  of the large group that we have gone to Isla with this trip.  This was taken on a golf cart day a few years ago when we were all down for the Barracuda Bash in January.   That says alot--that we all get along enough to take another trip together!  Should be on the island in the early afternoon today!

New Bloomer

 I went outside early in the morning ( about 6 am)  the other day --wanted to check to see if there was much damage to my plants from the bad storm the night before--lots of rain, thunder & lightning & hail.    And I saw this poppy was blooming!  I  love the color of this & how the petals are like paper.
Still at the Cape today--hopefully we will finish up this morning & get to be back home before supper!

Arrived safely

 I left at 6:30 am to drive to the Cape yesterday--the sun was out when I left, but by the time I made it to the Massachusetts Turnpike it started to rain & it rained all the way to the Cape ( about 3 hrs).  This is the Sagamore Bridge--one of the bridges that goes over the Cape Cod Canal ( the other is the Bourne).  And a look in the other direction of the canal.
It's now 8 pm & it's pouring rain.  I just made it back to the hotel I'm staying at before it started.  Accomplished quite a bit  today--found lots of interesting things--like one of my parents wedding invitations--I've never seen one before.
Lots more to do tomorrow!

Cape Cod!

Spending the morning ( 4 1/2 hrs ) driving to Cape Cod to pack up my Aunt's apartment.  We moved her into the nursing facility at the place she lived--at 97 she just can't get along on her own anymore.
Don't think the beach will be this empty this trip...supposed to be close to 100 degrees ( maybe not on the Cape though---but we're staying at a place with indoor & outdoor pools--hope we get to use them!

Sunny Days Bring Out the Bugs!

I sat outside a few days ago with my camera, watching butterflies & trying to capture them on film ( well, not film per se).  I was in the right place at the right time & saw this dragon fly.....beautiful, isn't it?
Click on the photo to enlarge & see even more of the detail of the dragonfly.

An Update

  A few weeks ago I posted some photos of these petunias right after I had purchased them  Spring Flowers
Thought you might like to see how well they are doing .  They are now planted in a small wooden frame around the mailbox

Purple Haze

 I love all the shades of purple flowers that are blooming now.  This is the start of the irises.

 I Love the look of  softness & airiness in these past- their- prime dandelions!
