Coffee On Wednesday. #10

Good morning everyone! Time for a coffee on this sunny but cooler Wednesday. Yesterday began and ended with thunderstorms and in between the sun was shining off and on. So I managed to get out and wander around the yard getting a few pics of insects. Some pelicans circled overhead so I tried for some pics of them as well. That effort did not turn out very good however.

Not even one decent picture. I have a problem taking pics overhead like that, unless I am lying down, but it was too wet to lie down. I was up on the hill out back at the time. So that did not work out. That happens sometimes. At one time I was trying to find as many of our wildflowers as I could over a 3 year period. So I traveled around the area a bit, not going too far since I wanted to stay within a certain area.

Island living.

I had climbed up this one large hill and near the top I spotted a flower over the one edge of the hill that did not look familiar. But how to get down there to that ledge it was on, hmm, that was going to be a bit tricky. However, there were some small spruce trees along this one spot which went down to the ledge and the way down was not too steep. Now, my idea of “not too steep” might be different than yours.

Anyway, I wanted to see that wildflower, so down I went holding on to the trees along the way. The biggest of these trees was about 2 feet (60cm) tall, the others about a foot (30cm) tall. But they were well rooted and strong. Except the 4th one which pulled out rather easily and down I slid to the ledge. It was a different wildflower than any others I had seen, though I cannot remember what it was now.

Islands are everywhere on this lake.

However, getting back up off the ledge was not going to be easy. Do I go up, or continue going down? I decide to go down, looked almost like a path. It was fairly easy going until I met with a dead end. So back up I went. That last “up” part where the little tree became dislodged was not going to be easy. Reminded me of my winter walks and falling down cliffs.

Anyway, up I go. The first little tree would not hold me and came popping out rather easily. There was a larger pine tree over to the side of the ledge with good strong branches. Perhaps I could climb that and get up to the stronger little trees. I looked down. Bad idea. Heights and I do not get along. Back to my first idea.

The beauty of the lake on a summer day.

I crawled up on my hands and knees until reaching the stronger little trees then I was able to use them to pull myself back to the top. That was not so bad after all. Then there was the time trying to get a picture of that mushroom. But that will have to wait. Pictures today are from our beautiful lake. I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.

Steve and Muffin.

  2. Okay, beautiful pics of the blue lake and sky, but some of us LIKE clouds and rain. Don’t be afraid to experiment with some artsy ones of what some consider foul weather, but what I prefer to call Pre-Deluge weather (when people lived hundreds of years because of no direct sunlight! ๐Ÿ˜‰)

    • Thanks for the comment C. A., but I will stay with what I enjoy, sunny cheerful weather. And sunshine brings out the color of everything much better than cloudy rainy days. Have a great day!๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜บ๐Ÿ“ท๐ŸŒž
