Welcome July

These baby Swallows were around for a few days learning to fly. They stayed relatively safe hanging on to our soccer goal.

A buck came to visit.

The deer that come into our yard have their favorite plants. The Variegated Willow is one of them.

We are headed back to double digits instead of being over 100 degrees which is a relief. We’ll be in the 90’s for several days.

We don’t have big plans for the 4th this year besides going to church. My sister and hubby are stopping for an overnight on Monday the 5th after some time in Idaho. It will be nice to see them. The mayor of Colville has made the decision to not allow fireworks in the city this year. Because our Spring was dryer than usual and we’ve been in an extreme heat wave there is a danger that any little spark could start a wildfire.

Our flags will be waving proudly!

Do you have plans?

  1. I am thankful you are cooling off slightly. Your pics of the swallows and buck are adorable. Have a pleasant weekend and enjoy your sisters visit.

  2. I love seeing deer in our yard except for when they eat all my geranium blossoms and leave just the stems behind! We will be grilling with the family on the 4th and watching the fireworks over the lake from our deck. God please bless America!

  3. How nice that the buck came for a visit. We don’t usually see bucks here at the house, but lots of does and fawns.

  4. Ellen – we have a swallow nest in the peak of our roof. Unfortunately, three of the babies have fallen out so far and didn’t make it. One of my nephews arrives on July 4, and will be visiting with us through the 16th. We will be hanging here at the house for the holiday. I wish more communities in the northwest would ban fireworks. So risky with the drastic drought and dry conditions. Happy Fourth!
