More of June

My photos are piling up since I haven't been blogging regularly, so here's a few more photos taken way back...in June.

First of all, a photo of Flighty's Favorites, grown in my garden from his pot marigold seeds kindly sent to me in the mail.  His can be seen in his header photo :)  My pot marigolds are lounging in a pot in an old chair inside the rose garden, and are still blooming merrily away.  Thanks Flighty!


Here are a few more photos from Miracle Beach ~

An enticing picnic spot:

A little self-sufficient fellow off for a day's digging:


A relaxing camping area:

A Bald eagle, keeping watch:


And some up, up and aways...



Nearer home, there was a Father's Day classic car show ~
Here's a rare late 1950's Edsel convertible:

A robin in my cherry tree.... visiting Ravens ate most of the cherries, and there weren't many (I had one).  No sign of raccoons this year.



On a rare dull day, I spotted a parade of Canada Geese, as two seagull sentinels were birding their posts.  Nobody seemed to be interested in following the leader's marching technique.


and last but not least, some natural seaweed art...one surfer dude


and one dancing fool.


More July photos coming soon :)

  2. How nice to see Flighty's marigolds thriving in your garden! I wish some of the double-petaled ones survived in my garden, but it is still cheering to see them re-seed. I love the shots of the kites against that blue summer sky and fluffy clouds. And how delightful to see stylish seaweed along your walk.

    1. Thanks Nikki ~ yes, the pot marigolds are still flowering, and seem to enjoy lounging in the chair ~ quite fitting I though ;) The kites are always fun to watch, especially when it's a perfect day for it. Glad you liked the seaweed ;)

    1. Hi Flighty ~ glad I finally got the pot marigolds uploaded...of course, they like lounging in the chair ~ ;) They have a good view up there as well, and overlook, and perhaps guard, the rose garden ;)

    1. Thanks Snowbird ~ so pleased you enjoy the bald eagle, and of course the other photos. Raptor releases are held at the Wildlife centre when they are ready for flight, and it is open to the public ~ always good to see them fly back into nature!
