☔️πŸ’§☔️ Rain Rain Go Away.....☔️πŸ’§☔️



The robins have been plentiful...especially with the wet gardens!!

You can see the rain drops on his head...and he scooted under a Juniper for some shelter...

And the Wind....gosh...very gusty...you can see his fathers blowing!!






While Mrs Cardinal admired herself in one of my many garden mirrors...

Mr Cardinal did some preening in a nearby Pear tree...about to bloom!! 




It seems like it has been raining for days and days...well...I guess it has!!

Everytime it is not going to rain...

We head down to the cottage...and enjoy some sunshine and some outdoor time...

This past Wednesday was a glorious day...

I am sifting thru my photos...and will share soon...

Hope that your homes are not in any danger from the rising water...

Stay dry my friends!!!






And not to forget the 2 birthdays we just celebrated...

Top pic is my DIL...2 daughters and of course you all know Miss V!!

This is my son and daughter outside the Mexican Restaurant...with Miss V!!!
She enjoyed it very much!!! hahaha!!
Hope that you are all well...and dry!!!

We will be home all weekend...as it is going to rain all weekend!!!

   Pea & Ham Soup on the stove...

          Scallops and Lamb Chops on the menu for tonight!!!

                I must do a food post...I have lots of pictures of our meals... 


          See you all soon...

                 Cheers!  :o)

  2. Great photos of the birds, Linda. Those robins are such chubby little things. I presume it's Ryan that turned 40. "Happy Birthday, Ryan." Great shot of your girls, too. We are in for three days of rain as I think you are, too. Geesh...eh!

  6. Your family is beautiful, Linda. I know it means a lot to get together...at least for me, all of us in one place!

    Love your bird pics. Your robins are chubbier and a bit more colorful than the ones we have around here. So cute! You really capture birds so well. Do you really have mirrors your garden?

    We had rain and gloom up until Thursday but it's still in the 50's. It was sort of fun being at the lakehouse last weekend with all the thunder and lightening. The rain blew sideways and I couldn't see out the windows! Now if it were summer I would have been afraid of a tornado and not nearly as thrilled! At the lake now...my work is done for now. I need to get out and work on my gardens but I'm not rushing. Plan to take the dogs on long walks tomorrow!

    Pics and recipes, please!

    Jane

  12. And the rain keeps coming ☔️🌧
    The birds are loving the squishy ground and finding all the bugs. Everything is so green, I'm sure we are watching the wanna be grass grow and grow.
    A bit if a wet basement, but not as bad as some near by. Flooding, road closures, ferry stopage, cancelled events, sandbags available for those that need them.
    I want some of that hot weather in Alberta πŸ˜ƒ

  13. Love your bird photos, but your family pics are my favourite. Rain couldn't keep me back from my trek to my daughter's yesterday, always worth the long drive. Keep warm and dry this weekend!

  14. Rain makes everything so green and lush, and I don't mind being out in it if dressed properly. But... I do miss the sun!
    Several friends of mine are dealing with flooding basements. In my family home we used to deal with that, too, as we backed onto a ravine. Was not fun!
    Hope you are safe and dry. Your menu sounds so delicious. Can't wait to eat regular food again!

  15. Wonderful photos Linda ! I think like us the birds have had enough of this rain even more so as I can imagine how wet and chilled they must be poor things . We are staying warm and dry . It is to be drying out and we will be getting sunshine as of tomorrow Sunday and warmer temps for the best part of the week here YIPPY !!. Thanks for sharing , Have a good rest of the weekend !

  16. Gosh it does sound wet over there, and are there floods in the offing?? The birds are the sweetest, just doing their thing, he he. Your family photos are great, framers in fact. Look at little Miss V in her skinny jeans - how did she grow up so fast?

    1. Lots of flooding Patricia...all along Lake Ontario...Ottawa and into Quebec. And the Maritimes too!!
      We are lucky where we live...
      She is growing in leaps and bounds...

  17. The good thing about the rain is that I don't have to water the chickens.

  19. Just breathtaking pictures of your rainy day birds. So awesome. Happy Birthday fun, and darling family. Can't wait to see your meals...they sound wonderful. I've never done lamb chops...looking forward to seeing yours. We had thunder and rain today. I got cold, so turned on the oven and made scones and cookies..now I'm warm and full.. HaHa.

  20. Great photos of the robins and cardinals. We had a pair of robins nest building in the hemlock tree but I haven't seen them the past few days. I hope all is well at the cottage and no high water along the shore. Maybe it hasn't affected that area like around TO. Such terrible flooding everywhere. xo Pam

    1. I am sure that the rivers around there...like The Grande River...will have some flooding...but the cottage was AOK!
