Summer…A Poem.


Summer is here with all its green,

Making such a relaxing scene.

Mixed with the calming sky so blue,

Makes a wonderful day ’tis true.

Summer is what I really like,

Great to walk or taking a hike.

All of summer with its beauty,

Sights and sounds so very lovely.

The sparkling lake and sunny sky,

Such wondrous beauty, my oh my.

The tiny bird singing its song,

Loud and sweet, so lively and strong.

The grass so green, tender and soft,

Butterflies wings held aloft.

Flowers blooming without a care,

Beautiful scent filling the air.

Tiny droplets of morning dew,

Silvery webbing not a few.

The bees checking out each flower,

Freshness from a summer shower.

There’s all of this and more I know,

Summer’s beauty all these do show.

      • July is probably our biggest month for thunderstorms. I had to move fast, that rain was coming in the windows, bunch of water inside now. This is a bad storm, Muffin is going crazy now.πŸ˜²πŸ˜¬πŸ™€β›ˆ

      • We have had more thunderstorms in the last 2 weeks than we usually get all month, and some of them have been real bad like today. That one lightning strike was very close, maybe 100 feet away, I’m surprised our electricity didn’t go off.πŸ€”πŸ€ͺπŸ™„

      • I’m waiting for this thunderstorm to pass, it’s a bad one, poor Muffin was going crazy with this one. Usually she just hides under the bed, unless it’s really bad, then she runs around like today.πŸ˜²πŸ˜¬πŸ™€β›ˆ


      • Oh, send the thunderstorm here!! We need it nowπŸ™ I hope it stops soon and Muffin can breathe a sigh of relief then. Animals can really sense things more intensely I think

      • Yes, animals are very sensitive to storms, Muffin knew this one was coming while the sun was still shining. I wish I could send it to you, we have had enough for a while.πŸ˜€πŸ€ͺπŸ™„


      • It’s their sixth sense, I suppose. I really really wish you could send it☹️ I want a good amount of rain here.
        I wish it stops there soon and travels all the way hereπŸ˜‚

  3. Ahhh…daily happiness break with Steve and Muffin. I do love summerβ€”hoping we don’t have any major fires this year. Last year was really tough on us. Couldn’t breathe. Skies were dark. Seems like a bad dream now. Especially looking my window this morning and seeing blue skies…how quickly it can change…
    Don’t get struck by lighting!! ⚑️πŸ’₯πŸ”₯β˜”οΈ

    • Thank you so very much Nina!! Your kind words make my day brighter!🌞 Yes, we had some terrible heavy smoke from fires earlier this month. All the rain we have had has helped around here but some of our worst fires didn’t get much rain so they are still burning out of control.πŸ”₯ The worst fire is about 200,000 acres now. There has been some amazingly close lightning strikes the last couple days and another storm is closing in now.βš‘β›ˆ I’m still hoping it misses us though!πŸ€ͺHope you have a great day and weekend!!πŸ˜„πŸŒžπŸ˜Έ


      • Oh gosh 200,000 acres! Whoa….I just took a look on the internet. Yep. Ontario and Alaska are on fire. Big fire. Big smoke. Sigh…it’s just a matter of time now…
        I hope the storms miss you as well. Oh how I look forward to winter again..

      • Oh my, how can you look forward to that white, cold season?? How’s the woodpile coming along? And your garden, any veggies ready?πŸ˜„πŸŒžπŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎπŸ…πŸ₯•πŸ₯’πŸŒΌ


      • Because there is NO SMOKE!!!!! The wood is stacked for next winter and we’re starting on the following years. Tomatoes are just starting to show color and cantaloupes are getting huge! Chili peppers and parsley, kale…not too much else this year. Been working on homes for future blueberries. Oh and the wild black raspberry is ripeningβ€”if I can get to them before the birds do! You must get good fruit where you are? Berries?

      • The only thing I think of for winter is cold,πŸ₯Ά shoveling endless snow, β„πŸŒ¨cold, have to stay inside, cold and sometimes even colder.πŸ˜‚It can be good for berries some years, everything is very late this year because of a late and cold spring. Blueberries, raspberries, Saskatoons, chokecherries, pincherries and strawberries. That’s the wild fruits. My landlord has an apple tree but it’s not doing good this year.🌳 Chipmunks are a problem for raspberries and strawberries.πŸ˜•πŸΏ I would love to have a garden again, even a small one would be nice. I was checking for blueberries but there wasn’t much at all, everyone is saying the same thing.πŸ™ That’s bad, it will bring more bears into town early this year. But maybe I can get a picture then!πŸ˜ƒπŸ“·πŸ»πŸ˜Έ
