Happy Summer!

Ah, summer – season of abundant and changing colours! The wildflowers along roadways take their turns throughout the months of May through August.

In June, the lupins stand tall in the ditches in our town but this year along one particular street, they were joined by columbine! Turns out a friend of mine who lives across the street there has been tossing wildflower seeds there. We can’t wait to see what will bloom next.

Spring brings a spectrum of colour as flowers burst with life.

The skies around here display a spectrum as well. If you didn’t see my video on Ignace Outposts’ YouTube channel, FaceBook or on The Weather Network (they insert a commercial, sorry)…

just soak in the snapshot below (straight out of the camera).

While snows still blow around us in the north, my hands and heart are happy to knit loving stitches. I purchased this sweet pattern, called Roseberry, on ravelry.com and the yarn in St Charles, IL. I hope it’s recipient feels my love surround her while wearing it. 😉

Gardening is not my thing. In spite of me, some stuff grows in the beds around my house. I was excited this spring to see my hydrangea green up. There was hope it would actually blom this year. Well, it did – sort of…timidly.


Awe, isn’t it pretty?!

I love the wild, random splashes of colour we find along the shore in summer!
And my polarizing filter! 😉

Some flowers save themselves for late summer appearance.  Dew covers these delicate, wild asters along Agimak Creek..
