June 2018 – week 24

Welcome and thank you for joining me on this year’s project of taking/posting photos every day.

This week’s weather has been quite changeable. Hot days, thunderstorms and then a few really cool days…and now back to warmth. 

Now onto this week’s photos:

June 10 – blooming black locust trees; these beautiful blooms can been seen everywhere. They are so pretty, cascading blooms from great, tall trees all over the country side.

June 11 – last night’s sunset; this is the view from my back yard. I never tire of this view, with or without a sunset!

June 12 – “if I don’t move, you can’t see me”; we have a bumper crop of chipmunks this year. They run all over our property and are very entertaining.

June 13 – last light; coming home from work, when the soft, late afternoon sunlight came through the window, landing on the plant on the sill. It was a wonderful quiet moment between the busy day and the evening rush of getting supper on the table.

June 14 – after the rain; I received a weather alert for a severe thunderstorm on my phone while driving home, though it did was still quite bright. I thought I made it home and it looked like I may have missed the storm, but heard thunder in the distance as I got out of the car. After a sudden 10 minute deluge of rain, wind & thunder the sun came out again.

June 15 – pale pink peony; another beautiful flower of the season. This one is the palest pink.

    1. Thanks – they really have multiplied this spring! Now, to add to the mix, are squirrels and interesting turf wars are being played out on our property! 🙂

      BTW – I visited your blog. I send my condolences; I lost my mom last year…and strangely, I ended up at the exact spot at Sandbanks in contemplation… remember the good, and cherish those times. xoxo

  1. I was trying to decide which photo to comment on, there’s just so much in here to like and appreciate – chipmunks, peonies, hydrangeas! Consider them all loved 🙂
