Another Hazy Day

It continues to be hot and hazy in our area (it is 32 degrees as I write this at 6:00pm).  The smell of smoke greets us every time we leave the house.  R. brought it to my attention this morning that everything is covered with a fine film of ash from the wildfires.  I went outside again for a closer look.  Sure enough, there is a thin layer of extremely fine dust and grey speckles on everything.  The speckles show up a bit on these marigolds (click picture to enlarge).

The pea pods are starting to fill out.  We are going to have a lot of peas!

Pink Bumblebee tomatoes

Looking forward to these cream-coloured dahlias opening. 

Two of the large spruce trees at the end of our driveway (growing on our neighbour's side) are heavy with cones.
