I smell like fire
Went camping this past weekend…..
Canoeing on Hamlin Lake… the girls mentioned how they prefer zipping around on Aunt Jodi’s jet ski “waaaayyyy” more than canoeing while we paddled back into the wind.
Taking a break to climb a sand dune and swim.

Sapsucker back at camp
American Redstart… first time seeing one.
The Redstart eating a moth.
Sapsucker woodpecker holes in a white birch.
Gray-headed Catbird. In field guides the catbird is described as illusive. This one sat on our picnic table most of the weekend and tried pecking open a container of carrots.
The deer at the campground were also tame. This one is in a small ditch.
A new bluebird family is in the works…. she laid her third egg yesterday.
The Allium dropping seeds.
This spring I dug up most of the garden to thin it out. Looks like I’ll be digging it up for years. It’s crowded!
Crosimia, a favorite of the hummingbirds once it blooms.
