"Juneuary"

Sometimes in the Pacific Northwest, we have a month called "Juneuary." That's when summer starts but the weather remains cool and rainy. However, when we have sunbreaks, it's a great time to take a few photos.

A bunny decided to sunbathe in my front yard! I was afraid he might be injured, but when I walked onto the porch, he hopped away.


The hummingbirds are hungry! It's unusual to see two at the feeder at the same time. I love the green iridescence of these two.


This little guy glowed!


Wildflowers are blooming along a nearby hiking trail. These daisies brightened my day.


Mock orange created a delicious scent.


Foxgloves added a splash of color.

  11. Our June has been quite Juneuary too with cold windy Atlantic days. I hope things warm up tomorrow and for the whole of July. For both of us.

  12. As always, your posts gave me a real lift. This is my kind of weather. My brother and i used to call foxgloves wolf mittens. And mock orange fills the air with fragrance. As for bunnies, to make a un, our neighborhood a-bounds with them. Thanks, Sandy. Keep the pictures coming!

  17. ...when I was in the nursery business I would spent a week in Portland to visit my suppliers. Some years I would freeze, crazy!

  18. Oh how beautiful! I am from New England and have lived here most of my life except for 2 years when I lived in the Pacific Northwest. I loved it there but missed New England too much to stay.

  20. The cold weather has been making me crazy with trying to run a farm when it's too cold for anything to germinate.

  21. Not sure if you have this comment already , to 'approve', because we use different systems, Sandra :) :) Looking dry and brown here in the height of summer, but there's plenty of colour in the flowers. Thanks for sharing! Have a great summer!

  24. Oh so pretty in your yard. We had a couple of hot-ish days here in Eugene, but it’s mostly been some kind of April/May weather... even still so far this month. (It seems really chilly to us coming home from Florida, but real locals are wearing shorts and tees!)
