Lovely Summer Days & Celebrations

Hi there,

Just dropping in to share a few pictures from my recent nature walks.
As you know, I love to get out and about. Well, more than that. It's an absolute necessity for my  over all well-being.
On my walks, I've been lucky to encounter little animals and many other things of beauty. Yesterday we had a mink check us out. He was on the boardwalk and when he saw us he ran for cover, but he did peek out from under a boards to look us over. So curious. It's a trait that I admire in humans and in our fury and flying friends.

Wild Blue Flag Irises. 

I had to lean over the barrier for this one. Love the iris at the bottom. Wish I had a better pic. It would be a lovely one for the drawing/painting board. Maybe I can go back out there and take one today. 😉

Love the shape of these leaves.

Musk mallow. The seeds must have blown into the wild places because this plant is a native of India. White flowers, for me, are hard to capture in a photo. Any pointers?
Water lilies backed up by a winning chorus of frogs.
A huge wasp nest.

To those who ask, I didn't make the cut off date for an entry in the juried art show. Last year it was held in September, and I was hoping or the same this year.  I did, however, go to the opening night to cheer the others on. There were approximately 186 entries. And what a wonderful array of great paintings!

As a country, we are celebrating 150 years of Confederation on July 1st. U2 along with some other great bands will be entertaining us on Parliament Hill.

Speaking of celebrations, to my American friends do have a wonderful, safe and happy 4th! 

I've decided to take a little hiatus from blogging. Thank you so much following my blog and for reading along. I do appreciate each and every one of you and I love to read your comments!  In the meantime, you can find me here.

HAPPY CANADA DAY !
