Happy Summer Solstice!

My little buddy dropped by tonight to say hello. I was able to approach within about 6 or 8 feet of it to get this picture! So glad I happened to bring my phone outside with me!
It was also the first time I have ever seen any birds perch on the lines we put up for the patio lights back in April. If I’d had my good camera it would have been such an amazing shot.

The most delicious Peach EVER

In February we planted a semi dwarf Red Baron peach tree that was full of beautiful pink blossoms. Now it is full of beautiful tiny peaches and we discovered today some of them are ripen to perfection.
There were 2 peaches we ate right from the tree; quite possibly the most delicious, juicy, tasty treat I have ever eaten!
There is just nothing better than food you grew yourself with love and appreciation!!

Transit of Venus

Ok, I confess I pretty much am fascinated with astronomy. It’s just plain fun and interesting.

This week we have an event that is very rare so it seems worth mentioning in case you have not already heard about it.

Here are a few links for more information:
