  1. It looked so lovely and peaceful there. Rained here for a good part of Saturday, overnight Sunday and on and off today. But we still enjoyed ourselves... in the garden, family bbq, with the grandkids, walking by the bay, and taking oodles of photos.

  4. I sure hope the beautiful weather on Thursday held up for the weekend. It was cloudy and warm Saturday and Sunday with sunny breaks. Today - rain. Lots of rain. And cool. Your flowers are still looking great.

  5. Oh I love that first picture, Linda! I call my turtle heads Hot Lips, I actually caught a bee sleeping in one of them. I posted it on my blog if you get a chance.

    I'm delighted your weekend fulfilled your expectations. Spectacular shots!

    Thank you so much for sharing...

  7. I've not made it to the lake even once this year and it's less than a mile away!
    What is wrong with me?

  8. Beautiful as always Linda, I especially love the grasses, such a beautiful colour against the house, and the geese on the water - do you train them to swim in a line and hold still for photos!! Also, love the whale over the screen porch that I spied in the background. Gardens look great, hope you get some wonderful autumn colours when the time is right - and not before thank you very much she says!!!

    Glad you had a great weekend even if they didn't all make it out to see you - their loss. Take care of yourself and have a good week.

      Looked after Vivian...she is a little dynamo!
