Wordless Wednesday: Mid-May Scenes

The days are getting long and we're currently in a string of beautiful, calm, sunny days that have me running around in a tank top during my outdoor chores. Although the spinach, onions, carrots, and lettuce I sowed last week would really like a hit of rain, it's hard to argue with . . . summer! While it's been "heigh-ho, heigh-ho" back to work for Andy and I this week, we have stolen away down the lake on a couple boat rides and even hiked a nearby trail on Sunday. There's a lot to discover in the woods this time of year.

  3. I love your cooking spot. I didn't know that you get sandpipers in your neck of the woods - I always see them running along our beaches. I'm glad to see that Spring thaw has come for you!

  9. This is definitely a time of year I could live in the woods! Warm enough, but not crazy with skeeters yet! Beautiful pictures Ada!

  10. Incredible! And to just see these things... A post like this, for me, would involve barking dogs, cars speeding, kids on bikes and sirens...

  12. Jealous-- sort of. We have had 2 days of sun in a row but I certainly can not call it summer!! And gardening??? We were finally able to mow the lawn as it stopped raining long enough for the grass to dry out. Maybe we'll be able to rototill the garden by Memorial Day... but I won't hold my breath!!
