A Summer Giveaway

First, I am not giving anything away, but I am providing you a link to a blogger I follow.  To be honest, I do not at all remember how I came upon this blog, or if they found me first.

Anyway, I have enjoyed the absolutely beautiful images on the site.  This month there is a giveaway of a journal.  I no longer keep a journal.  I did years ago when I went through my divorce and found it very cathartic.  Then, I burned all of them.  My doubts and fears were written down, dealt with and destroyed by fire.  Now, I just have a blog.

If you are interested in the giveaway or just want to see the blog, then go to '2 Bags Full...'.  You will not be disappointed.

As for me today is the last day of June and the year is half-over.  I spread the last bag of mulch yesterday and all my garden projects are done for this season - which originally was not supposed to have any projects.  Oh, well.  Now I will just sit back and watch the flowers bloom, the rain, the birds, and then wait for fall when I get to clean up everything that bloomed this summer.

The robins are all running around the yard and having a great time in the bird bath.  Here is a youngster that was running in the backyard.  Hard to get a good shot as these babies are pretty quick on their feet.


I had to zoom in on this area below to get the picture of the bird near the middle of the photo.

  1. Beautiful hostas. I love your little bridge. I have admiration for anyone who can take pictures of wildlife. There is a reason why my pictures are of birds and buildings. They don't run from me. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. I am so glad I have a digital camera. I could never waste film shooting ten pics to get one, maybe.

  2. Difficult to get baby birds in shot. I like your little bridge too. You do have a beautiful garden.

  3. I did not realize that is a baby robin. It is hard to get a shot of birds. I love your garden-it looks like wedding photos can be taken there. I love the bridge and the little brook that probably was full of water on Saturday. This is stunning

    1. I only knew it was a robin because momma was right behind her watching. I used to divert all my ground water to the bridge area, but with so much it overflows and makes a mess. I now have the drain line diverted to a corner far away from this area. My River's birch is loving the wetness.

    1. Thanks. The critters love it too. That cute little bunny and family ate the hollyhocks down to stubs.
