I never tire of this beautiful Peach Begonia...it just keeps getting better each week...♥️

Boyfriend had first swim of the year!! The water has finally warmed up...but is sooo deep this year!! The waves were like the ocean this past weekend...so darn windy!! And the clouds!!! well...I will show you those another day!!
Always love the sunporch, when the afternoon sun streams in...

All ready for us to enjoy our dinner out there!!
 






My tomatoe plants are bursting!!! Picked a few, and they were sweet and delicious...

The yellow flower below, is my butternut squash...hope I get a few!!

Picked a Zuchinni, Cucumber and the tomatoes to eat...

Nothing like it!!

This wee guy kept me company while I was doing the dishes....
I think he/she was a baby...had trouble balancing on the tree!
so cute...glad they are back...

Hope you are all having a great day...

Just started raining here...wee bit of thunder...

I have chicken and rice soup on the stove...dinner!!

Boyfriend will also get a Lobster sandwich...finally defrosted the can...

He is very excited!! hahaha!

Enjoy your evening...

    1. Hi Eddie....
      I do believe trouble is your middle name!
      Water not fold...probably low 70's....we were usually in much earlier, but the water especially cold this Spring!
      That sweet little bird is a Chickadee! One of my favorites!
      Enjoy your sleep!

    2. Well "Clarke" is my middle name . . . lol
      70 degrees is nice and warm . . you might get me in for that . . :)
      Chickadee what a delightful name for a delightful bird.. . . sounds very cheeky!! :)
      I always sleep well . . . very lucky that way . . :)

  5. Love the water like that. I want a swim!
    Your begonias are truly amazing. I marvel at them.
    Look at that sweet little bird - aw!
    Trouble. Hmmm. I was so insanely busy today and operating on two hours sleep that the only trouble was trying to stay awake through the turmoil. Crazy.

      How do you survive on 2 hours sleep?

    2. I often survive on four, but two was really stretching it. Aieee.

  6. Those waves look huge! Think I'd be staying right where you are.

  7. All that rain we've had has given you a deep lake! Look at those waves!
    Our weather has been pleasant the last few days....less humidity and a bit cooler...feels nice!
    I actually enjoyed walking around the yard today instead of sweating and wishing I was inside! haha...

    1. I did not get outside today...too busy inside!
      Had the windows open in the morning....but had to put the a/c back on when the rain started!
      Perhaps I can get out there tomorrow!

  9. These are beautiful pictures Linda! You are lucky to be enjoying the fruits of your labour in the garden. I got 5 pea pods today. It's pathetic. We just had a huge thunderstorm go through here for a good hour and it's still raining although clearing in the west. The thunder and lightning were crazy. I have a tin of lobster in the freezer too and must get it out one day to enjoy before summer is over. I haven't even had any this summer yet! Have a good week. xx Pam

      The rain will be good for your garden....no lobster yet? In New Brunswick? Come on Pam.....
      I defrosted in the fridge....added some mayo....he loved it! Said it was better than in a Mahone Bay!
      Enjoy your evening!

  10. Just wondering.....did you happen to leave a glass of wine out. Maybe little chickadee had a little sip and got a little tipsy. Just wondering.....

    1. Hi Jane...Hopefully a few more tomatoes this weekend...you are growing them, right??

  13. The peach coloured begonias are lovely, I've get yellow ones and they keep on blooming and blooming. I've actually got zucchini as well, didn't think I would get any as they kept dropping off. But I've almost given up on the squash. Tomatoes are delicious and hubby picks and eats more when he is out with the bbq :) I'm keeping out of mischief, just enjoying the less humid weather. The lakes are much higher here too, in fact one area where there is a spit of rocks for the birds to perch on is almost completely under water.
