Memories of summer past

Today is horrid.  AGAIN.  Yesterday it was cold and it poured with heavy rain all day.  Today it is even colder and the rain is still falling.  I need to go into hibernation.  Many areas of our country are flooded again.  There seems to be a pattern emerging here.  Around the last 8 summers have been terrible.  Each year as spring dawns I am hoping desperately that lovely warm, sunny days lie ahead. I have been wrong.  In fact the last  few years have just been getting progressively worse.  This year summer was non existent.  The last few winters have been harsh.  The rain just seems to go on and on.  I fear that this is the way it is going to be from now on.  I don't do cold.  I am a summer girl. This is the rain on my window.

Anyway to cheer us all up I thought I would post some photos of a picnic we had back in the summer.  I never got around to posting these ones.  We did manage to fit in several family picnics in between the rain and this one was at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough.  It was just the family members that live locally.

Don't you just love those last two?  Evan went first and Flynn copied him.  monkey see, monkey do!

Now winter is pretty much here and we have got all this rain my garden is looking sad and bedraggled. here is another summer memory.  The lilies that were in a pot by my front door.

Just gorgeous.  And the best thing of all?  They will come back again next summer.


  1. What great photos of your wonderful summer picnic! Love to two little boys at the end!! Girls don't have it that easy. LOL

    I wish I could send you some of our sunshine. We have a beautiful day for our Thanksgiving!

  2. so good to read one of your blogs! And the photos are nice. I remember seeing them before.

    Today was a pretty day here. I went out and cleaned out the flower bed and ripped all the moonflower vines off the porch railing. Everything looks nice and neat now, if a bit bare.

  3. Lovely photos Jilly. I do sort of remember those odd sunny days this last summer, although they were very few and far between. Your lilies are gorgeous, mine hardly managed to get their petals out before the damn rain came and made them all soggy!!!

  4. What we wouldn't give for some of your rain! You must be getting all of our share along with yours.
