This morning Boucle and I headed out to a waterfront park. The paths and rocks sit high above Lake Ontario, giving one a great sense of the immense lake, the wind blowing, the sound of the waves. Its just you and the world……….
What a gorgeous perfect summer day it was yesterday. Sunny, warm with just a nip in the air, and a bit breezy.
Boucle and I spent the day happily outside gardening and trying to catch pictures of the rare airshow jet zipping by. I had planned to plant some plants and move others in June, but it had been so warm all summer long, that I kept postponing and postponing.
The poor euonymus has been sitting in a pot, waiting for me all summer. Finally he is in his new home. And some plants were moved. And I dug up some giant poppies. I know….how could I dig up poppies. But they were taking over the entire back garden area, and smothering their fellow plants. So I dug them up, including sifting through the soil over and over, trying to find every last tuber. Otherwise they will return. I am hoping that I got them all.
What a perfect summer day we had……….
The harvest has just begun…….wonderful fruits like apples, and fresh vegetables like freshly dug carrots, are arriving, to make delicious homemade foods . I saw beautiful cauliflower heads in the store the other day. Plump, white and yummy looking. My favorite cooking time of year is fall, when I make big batches of comfort foods to warm the insides…….
Used a SB600 Nikon Flash and umbrella for these shots.
