The Air Is Silky

Mock Orange in Bloom, My Garden

We woke to the finest morning of the summer thus far. Air is warm and humid, creating that silky feeling on the skin. With barely a breeze to rustle leaves, the garden is alive with bird song.

It's a holiday today and we're celebrating Canada Day -- our country's 146th birthday. People will be enjoying all manner of fun events to mark the occasion.

We are heading out into the garden with second cups of coffee (and with books in hand). Our festivities will be less exuberant than some as Mr. Hubby and I relax after a busy weekend away with family -- we were enjoying celebrations to honour my nephew's high school grad and my niece's 16th birthday.

To all my Canadian friends, Happy Canada Day!

We'll chat again soon,


  1. Happy Canada Day to you as well, Brenda! We, like you, are spending the holiday at home. I've spent a little time in the garden this morning and hubby is cleaning up the garage as I type. We'll settle down to watch the Blue Jays game soon and enjoy a quiet, relaxing day at home.

    Wishing you a wonderful day!

  2. Happy Canada Day, Brenda. That looks like a wonderful spot to sit and relax.

  3. holidays are for relaxing...let the young ones run around with their activities!!
