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.
