Coffee For Friday. #6 HAPPY CANADA DAY!

Hello everyone and Happy Friday, plus a big Happy Canada Day! Time for another cup of coffee on this beautiful sunny day! It is very windy again though. But it has been a very windy year, right from the beginning. Now, we always seem to have some wind during the day, but this is very windy. Trees swaying kind of wind. That makes it hard for walking to the river.

Today I am showing some of our different violas.

For one thing it makes it very hard to hear things. And because the undergrowth is so lush this year it is hard to see very far, so when you cannot see then hearing becomes important. Second thing is, if I have to use the bear spray, if it is windy then that makes it more difficult, especially if you have to spray with a cross wind or spray into the wind. Either way it just will not be very helpful. So I would prefer to have as little wind as possible.

There are 5 different violas in our yard.

Having a strong wind also makes it very difficult to get pictures. Flowers are continually blowing all over the place. Insects tend to hide more, and the ones that do come out when they land then they too are blowing all over the place. That makes it very difficult to focus on the flower or insect in order to get the picture. There were two large bumble bees out this morning, I have been trying to get pictures of them for the last couple of weeks.

And here is another viola.

But I lost out again this morning as the flowers would not stay still long enough to get a photo of the bees. Perhaps later. Or another day. They are around all summer so that helps. There was a nice bee fly out this morning as well, but again I missed that one. They are flies, not bees, but they kind of act like bees and sort of look like bees, so they are often mistaken for bees.

Here is number 4, I am still missing the 5th viola.

There is also a blue dragonfly around, but I still have not gotten its picture either. Another good reason for heading off to the river, there are a lot more dragonflies along that path than we ever would get in our yard. Plus damselflies. And it is their season now. Plus there are a lot more butterflies too. And birds. Maybe it will not be so windy tomorrow. I hope. Have a most wonderful Friday everyone and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    • Thank you Simon! No celebration today, but I put a bunch of small Canada flags in my flower pots on the deck.😁 I took a pic of the fifth one but it didn’t turn out, too windy. I will try again tomorrow, supposed to be just as windy though. Sigh. It was a great day, didn’t get many pictures though, too windy.πŸ™„πŸ“· But I did enjoy the day cleaning! You should try to sleep more,πŸ€”πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή 4 hours is not enough for a young guy like you. You need sleep to keep up your strength.πŸ€” Oh, maybe I shouldn’t type so loud, sorry about that,😬 hope I don’t wake you up. Good night, sleep well.πŸ₯±πŸ˜΄πŸ˜΄πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Ί
