Too bad we have to take the bad with the good, huh? If it was all good, it'd be Heaven here....

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

Finally feeling like summer here...and it's storming now, too!

Barb said...

You've flowers are lovely and your yard looks inviting. We do not have h/birds here so I do enjoy photos when they appear.

...ah the beautiful little hummers; lucky you Barb'. I love your roses; look so healthy and it is lovely to have a garden space to nurture isn't it? Once I get out into the garden, time just dissapears. Agree with you about the storms and being within walking distance of a huge lake system, storms seem to come along with a big bang around here.

The pool where you go for water exercise looks really nice. Love the flowers and I enjoy watching all the birds from my windows too. I hope you have a good and safe summer. Pam
