Weekend Mash Up



While scrolling through my pictures on my phone
I realized that I have so much to share

I did post last weekends shots on Facebook
and shared some on Instagram
but here is a little mash-up of last weekend


we arrived at the cottage on Saturday
to a sea of blue ~ the yard was full of forget me nots

they have been finished at home for awhile
so I was pleasantly surprised to see them here
and hated to mow them down

the buttercups were gorgeous and I took quite a few shots
to show Mom as she was not able to come down with us



then it was up to the farm to pick some rhubarb


and to the cemetery to plant some flowers


I cut washed and cut all the rhubarb up on Tuesday night
and bagged it for the freezer
I can't wait to make some goodies with it!


Sunday was Father's day and we went to the camp
to spend the afternoon with his Mum & Dad
I took everything we needed for supper and we feasted on bbq

he also put together his smoker that we got him for Christmas
so next weekend we are having a "rib extravaganza"
can't wait to try these ribs!

I love love love this time of year
and true to form ~ I am out every night doing one thing or the other
last week was no exception


of course I posted about my little Miss
and her junior prom on Thursday night
she makes my heart sing


Friday night looking down the river
I figured we were in for a light show


and man did it ever rain
that first crack of thunder scared the crap out of me
but out to the front porch we went to watch the rain come down
and the light show that only Mother Nature can provide


Trev is all finished work for the summer
perks of driving the big yellow bus full of kiddies around
so he headed out last night after supper
to spend some quality time with his bestie

4 wheeling was just one of the things on his list
some fun and some relaxation ~ I know he is having both

so with him gone it was just me and the furry kids
and I decided that I would take some shots of what made me
smile today


old tubs filled with flowers and sweet peas climbing up 
an old chair back


a sidekick that loves nature as much as I do


peonies in bloom


a sweet treat for getting some things accomplished today
instead of sitting on my butt on the deck!


fresh local berries ~ what to make what to make?


Canada Day prep is starting
next weekend ~ so excited ~ one of my favourite holidays!

Have a great week!
