Around here June is being referred to as June-uary because of the cool temperatures and bucketfuls of rain that has poured from the skies...and it hasn't finished yet. There has been the odd bright day with actual sunshine and blue skies, which raises hopes until the next downpour.
Here are my choices for the month of June:
1 - Sleep
Although I held a sleeping baby in my arms for a few hours, I never thought to take a photo (which would have been a difficult manouevre since my arms were filled ;)) So here's a little chickadee that appeared to be sound asleep on a branch:
2 - on the edge
3 - before
On the same visit, we made lemon curd turnovers:
5 - symmetry
I took this photo at the ferry ramp as I was waiting to board.
6 - out of reach
Public telephone booths aren't often seen any more, but this one is located on a small island. Ceanothus victoria bushes cover the entrance area and were swarming with bees. I would say the telephone is out of reach until the bees or flowers are done!
7 - close
Speaking of bees, here's a close up of one enjoying a favorite clover flower.
8 - night
It is very dark at night on the small island ~ here are the lights of the ferry docked for the night as seen through the cabin window, lights also reflected in the water.
Here is the ferry in the light of day:
9 - diamond
A raindrop twinkling like a diamond on one of my roses:
10 - crown
How about a crown of lilies at my front door?
I actually found some royal-looking bunting hanging across a street in a neighbouring town:
12 - majesty
There is nothing to surpass the majesty of a Bald Eagle flying overhead... especially on one of the few blue sky days :)
I have other photos to share which I will try and do soon.
We're celebrating Happy Canada Day on July 1 :)
