Random Five Friday

After skipping last week, today, I’m back on track for R5F.

1.) I visited my friend, Shirley, recently. She lives in her family’s old homeplace, and has two peacocks, both named George. I’d visited before, attempting to get good pictures of George, but he didn’t cooperate. Last week, he favored me with a pose. That beautiful green corn growing in the background reminded me of the summer days of my childhood.

2.) Wednesday evening, as I was out enjoying the sunset with Bride Swan, I heard a boat approaching.  I’m not good at recognizing boats from a distance, but as it was passing through the No Wake zone in front of our house, I heard a voice call out: “Hello, Aunt Dianne!”.  I realized it was our nephew, his wife and  their two little girls. I thought they might like a photo of their sunset cruise.

3.) I think Sundae’s jealous of all of Gypsy’s publicity on the blog this week.  Here’s exactly how she feels about it.

4.) You may recall my concern about the proximity of the “new” osprey nest to the marina. I wasn’t sure how the osprey parents would respond to all the human activity there once summer arrived. Apparently the ospreys are adapting, which is a good thing. As you can see by this picture, that is a party spot on the weekends.

5.) We seem to be in our typical summer weather pattern already. After a week of temps in the upper 90’s, we’re ready for some rain. Yesterday afternoon brought spotty showers, while the heavier storms passed to our north or to our south. Perhaps we’ll see more of this today…?
