A Few Favorite Things

Here are just a few of my favorite things! 
And they all are from my own back yard and home....

Baby Ducks... Wood Ducks... taken late June...






A few shots of our flowers around the back gate and in the inside the yard. I'm happy to report that we now have two kinds of bumble bees in our yard and a few more butterflies have been visiting. Still no sign of any frogs though.















 A berry trifle for our house guests!



 Going into the back yard from the lakeside. The flowers love to grow here and hang in front of the gate.  We've had a super abundance of bunnies this year and they apparently love those tall blue flowers, sorry, I can't remember the name, but they reseed easily and end up in unexpected places....


 Guests for dinner? Well yes, these bunnies decided to dine with us, 
alfresco of course!




 We dined on grilled baby squash, potatoes and chicken....



 And the bunnies had their own feast!




 The next day Dot oversees the back yard, 
.....see her paw, there's a dot at the tip....



 Some daylilies, bee balm and a few weeds next to the lake shore....



 Guy is a very well behaved boy on his leash.



 Guy hanging out with Dot!


Guy finds something in the grass and stands on the leash...
 Dot says...... Hey, Hey, get offa my Leash!!




 My view from a back yard bench... this is why I find it hard to leave.




 A view of our little lake over the flowers...



 When I took this the phlox were just starting to bloom... I'm behind on my photos more will be coming soon!




 There are a few patches of swamp milkweed next to the lake-shore, I've seen a few pairs of Monarch butterflies doing a mating 'dance' mid-air!






These cheerful Yellow day-lilies always brighten my day, as I hope they've brightened yours!


Thank you for joining me and taking a look at some of my favorite things...
