Rocks, Osprey and Sunset

Here in Smiths Falls we have a dump but it's not for garbage, it's for plant material, leaves, grass, tree branches etc. Gordon trimmed the trees this week so we had some stuff to dump but we've also been picking up free rocks there to line the flower gardens so after tai chi that was our job today.

We picked two trunk loads of rocks and brought them back and just put them near the beds. After I had a nap I went out to arrange them and I think they make a big improvement.

The rocks are lining the flower bed under the front window

And on the corner flower bed

And behind the garage

I like them so well I think we'll need a few more to put around my weeping fig or whatever it is and maybe some larger ones to plant a little bed by the shed where Gordon removed the ramp. It's left a bare spot that calling out for a couple of big rocks and some little plants. All in good time.

Tonight we went out at sunset again and saw these osprey in their nest.

Then on to Kilmarnock to our sunset site where this loon was sitting.

And some sunset photos.

That's all folks!

    The new color of your journal threw me at first, I didn't know if I was in the right place, I am so used to it being a deep red.

    But I was looking for your posts about your time in Rockprt, TX, and you don't have a search feature. Was that 2008?

    Also you had a synopsis of one of your trips that had the red background, but the writing was green, and I couldn't read it. Maybe, now I can, if I can find it again?

    The yard is looking good. Now you are treating your car like Lucy, when she 'rocked up' their trailer!

  6. Lake Conroe Penny gave me your blog address. I was wondering if you have ever stayed at Bayview RV Park in Port Mansfield, and if you would mind sending me your impression of the place? Thanks for your help.
