|Sunflowers made a pretty picnic table centerpiece.
Saturday afternoon our friends, Dave and Andi, joined us for a BBQ. Lots of food, drink and merriment. They had to leave around dusk due to an early start the next day, and missed the wildlife show that took place soon after.
|A skunk parade!
|Field of lavender, unfortunately not in bloom, we'll try to catch that next year.
|KITCHEN TIP; - Use dried Lavender in place of Rosemary or Tyme in recipes, they are from the same herb family
|Honey hives at the farm, the bees pollinate the lavender.
|See the bees?
|Best smelling port-a-potty ever! Smelled like lavender.
|Goodies purchased; bath salts, honey, chutney, and soap!
|Rob and our friendly waitress, Dimitra.
The holiday Monday was mainly spent in our favorite hang-out, the backyard. It was the last day of the CNE and also the Air Show. We always hear lots of noise as we aren't far from the airport, and sometimes we get some good looks.
|We were treated to a great fly-by of the Snow Birds!
|First time out birding in 4 months due to a knee issue.
