~June Fun~

How about some outdoor photos today?
On Saturday evening, I had a group of ladies at my house, so my husband escaped with his camera and came back with these.  I'm joining Watery Wednesday today!

These land gulls are not what I would call beautiful, but they are picturesque, I think.

Are you wondering what all of these American Pelicans are looking at?

What is this?

I think it's a catfish, it's trying to go up stream, but it does not get far, my husband said it kept falling back into the water.  But you can see by the spray coming off of it's body that it is giving it all it's got to make it up the concrete spillway.
There is a fish ladder in that area, but it is still covered in water due to the unseasonably high water levels.

 This is what my neighbor to the right of me put on her porch, isn't it pretty?

And this is mine, only there's a hedge that prevents anyone from seeing it unless they actually come up to my door.  She had no idea that we had 'almost' matching vignettes at our front doors.  I thought it's pretty interesting that we would do this, don't you.  I told her that great minds think alike.

I hope you are all having a beautiful Wednesday, the weather has finally turned nice and sunny and the weekend is promising to be the same.  Be sure to check out Watery Wednesday!

Amazing photos! I've never seen a fish do anything like that. Love your chair and plant! That is just too cute. Certainly odd that both of you would do the same thing. You live in a charming place.
Hugs my friend!

The seagull almost looks like an extension of the fence, as if he (or she) were sculpted from the same piece of wood (or metal).


Red sky in morning,
Sailors take warning!

Who knows what might happen out on the sea?
Waves riding high,
Waves to the sky,
Waves crashing and dashing all over me!

Red sky at night,
Sailors delight!

Leeward or windward we sail with no fear;
Water is calm,
Healing like balm—
Ahoy, fellow sailors, landfall is near!

Hi there, new to your blog, but as a former Canadian living in Australia for 35 years I was drawn to it :)! Love the pelicans! They are just stunning, ... do you think they are after the fish ? LOL Your pot of colour is beautiful on the chair, very retro and I love it! I am going to do one too now!
Come by and visit me some time!
Have a great week!

Great chair and pot on your front porch. Beautiful water pictures.
I'm craving peanut butter sandwich cookies from your previous post now, that were made in your wonderful kitchen.
