Katy Returns

I did go walk, walk, walking today but this photo is from another day.  The katydid came back.  Now, I know it's not the same katydid that came last year, but why does only ONE katydid visit every year and why is she always crawling along in the same place?  Hmmm?
It's very nice to see you, Katy!
 This morning while I was listening to our Brad's sermon on Youtube, I clicked over to find out whatever happened to the singer Raffi.  Do you remember him?  We've been listening to him in the car.  Sam and Plum call him "that nice man" and they know all of the songs on the one album we listen to.  He's still around!  From the website it did not appear that he is doing shows anymore.  He is a goodie, that Raffi.  I bought Bananaphone so I could listen to some different songs on my walk.  
 Look at the funny crows hiding in the branches!  I like crows better than magpies.  Magpies travel in huge crowds and they sound annoying.  I'm sorry but I do not like them.  I DO like crows because they have a nice shape.





















It was warm outside and my flip flops were squeaking.  I thought about calling Bill to bring the car and give me a lift.  Well, my camera was getting heavy, too.  I didn't.  I kept going.  
This summer we do not have as many flowers as we have had in the past.  Next year we will have fewer cucumbers (none) and more blooms.

I made some soup and it's meant to be for dinner but I think that I need a bowl of it right now.  Three grands are coming for dinner and their mother is bringing some leftovers from a dinner they had a few nights ago (pork roast, roasted potatoes) because I feel sure the vegetables in the soup will not be tantalizing to them.  Ha!
I'm going to walk the trail with a friend in the morning and I have a bit of clerical work to do, but I'm hoping the urge to clean strikes me or the urge to write letters.  But then, I have a few good books I'm reading AND some very fun knitting to do.  
Thank you for popping by again so soon.  
Happy Sunday!  Happy walking! 
I'll be back here very soon.

You saw lots of pretty things on your walk. Hope you have a good week ahead!

Lovely places to walk! But I'm concerned about you taking walks in your flip-flops... don't your feet, legs, etc. complain about that?

Hi, crows are lovely things, did you know they are the same family as magpies? we have lots of magpies here, they do make a very annoying noise sometimes when territorial but I think them so very pretty, especially when justs taking off in flight - all symmetrical black and white. I like symmetry - it was the only thing at school that really captured my attention! I like seeing pictures of your neighbourhood, garden and home. More please! Betty

Your photos are so beautiful dear Pom Pom .... & your sky is so very blue!! I have a grey overcast sky here today :-) I hope the urge to clean strikes me today too .... I also have a rather good book that is tempting me.

So many beautiful images here. I do love the porcelain Cavalier though (I wonder why?!). Have a wonderful week and I do hope the flip flops stop squeaking :) xx

It seems the word has spread in kaydid land that your lovely place is the place to visit each year. Lovely Summer blooms. Your garden is alive with glorious colour.

Such lovely colourful flowers on your walk.

A nice walk with pretty and colorful blooms. I wonder if that LS the same Katy.

Will check out Bananagram, or was it Banaphone, will recheck your post.

Henny Penny said...

The flowers are so pretty! I like crows too, but don't know if I've ever seen a Magpie before. That sweet baby picture in your header always catches me by surprise and makes me smile. It is simply adorable.

Farm Girl said...

What a nice walking place you have. I love the blue sky and all of the many different kinds of flowers. No pickles next year? That makes me chuckle.
I like seeing the Katydid. We will start seeing them now on the outside too.
It sounds like your Monday will be nice.
Have a lovely week!

You have captured colorful pictures on your walk. Enjoyed seeing them:)

Pretty photos. I don't know the difference between a magpie and a crow. I guess I always thought they were the same thing. I have a photo somewhere that I took a couple of years ago with 20 some crows perched on the top of a tree beside my home. It was a bit eerie! It sort of reminded me of that Alfred Hitchcock movie - "The Birds" Have a great day.

elizabeth said...

how nice! I love soups. I do wish my husband shared more deeply in this love! :) it's so nice that you get to see so many flowers!! :)

Happyone said...

Beautiful colors from your walk. You walk in Flip Flops!? : )
Always like to hear that others are walking too. : )

Kezzie said...

The crows are really cool as are your myriad marigolds!

Lisa Richards said...

Thanks for the nice walk! It sounds like you have lots of fun options for things to do! Enjoy!

I love the rich autumnal tones of many of the flowers in your photos. I'm really thinking Fall now ( although it got quite hot again today and it was NOT forecast).
Can't believe I'm tired of hot sunshine but I am.
We had vegetable soup today too. Yummy!

Maggie said...

That was a long walk you took but what lovely flowers and amazing shadow captures along the way.

I do not get as much done as you do, Pom, although maybe it sounds like it on the farm blog :) You do so much with your grands, which is wonderful!!! I checked out Raffi on youtube. He sounds nice.
