June 2017 – week 23

Welcome back to this year’s photo-a-day journey. I’m sharing little bits of my daily life & travels.

This week’s weather has finally started to get warmer; not as much rain and everything is growing.  The grass is high, the flowers are blooming….

Each moment of the year has its own beauty — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Now onto this week’s photos:

June 4 – the purple martins are back!  I am thrilled every spring when these guys get back from their southern journey.  They are busy building their nests & raising their young; they are very social and chatty; a joy to watch!

June 5 – a quilt in the garden; the people at the Stone Cottage have a beautiful garden & every year they open it up to the public.  There are artists and craftsmen/women.  There is music!  A wonderful way to spend an afternoon!

June 6 – honeysuckle; I love how the sunlight filtered through the trees onto these delicate blooms.

June 7 – early morning sunlight; my favourite time of day; all is still; the birds are chirping & chattering…

June 10 – rock garden; these little white flowers looked like pillows among the rocks.

As always, I thank you for visiting. Feel free to join in on Instagram, #ciuan365 or #nothingisordinary or you can just follow me @BasildonKitchens.

Until next time, Connie 🙂


I am living my dream life in the country! I love photography, travelling, cooking, baking and I even try my hand at quilting.
