Beach, Birds and Bounty :)
When I was at the beach recently, I caught a glimpse of a fellow paddleboarding westward, and then returning about half an hour later.
I also had my eye on a couple of crows, possibly young ones, enjoying splashing around in a stream running into the sea.
I was taking particular notice of these birds after watching a documentary called A Murder of Crows, part of the Nature of Things series on CBC the night before. I have found a link to the show here, in case you are interested in watching it. I knew corvids were intelligent, but after watching this show, I will be looking at them in a whole new light...because they will be taking notice of me...and you...
No surprise to see a robin or two around, especially when I am digging or raking.
Here is a look at what is growing in the back garden - everything coming along OK, except my friend who lives on a farm said that the wet cool weather has caused the growing season to be behind about 3 weeks. Usually the first of my cherries gets nibbled (by me, that is) on July 1, so it will be interesting to compare this year. The fruit seems to have a long way to go! There is no sign of any plums on the tree my son gave me, but it is only the first year.
...and I will leave you with the fragrance of roses, honeysuckle, and pansies...
