Tiger Swallowtails love the butterfly bush. They come singly or in pairs to drink the sweet nectar. I sit on the deck with my camera, waiting. Many shots and just a few are worth keeping. Love digital photography.
But the butterflies were not the only visitors on this Canada Day.
The grandchildren and their parents joined us for dinner on the deck. I could have plunked myself in the pool to cool off, but the water in it was very warm. We're having a heat wave. See how dry and brown the grass already is?
It's hard to get photos of children wearing hats who are most intent on whatever they are engaged in.
Steak on the grill, potato salad, edamame/apple salad, beet/orange salad, and a blueberry tart for dessert. Everyone contributed and it was easy going. Too hot to fuss. What doesn't get done in the morning around here lately just doesn't get done.
So. Happy Birthday, Canada. I'm very pleased to be a citizen.
