I think we almost all had a pretty crappy summer. The weather just didn't co-operate this year. What heat we did get came very late. We still had ripe tomatoes and corn, so can't complain about that. But it sure wasn't beach weather.

Geez, 4C and windy, that's too cold for me.

I think we're the few that had a good summer. We had lots of sun and warm weather. we're still having less rain than what they forecast. Isn't it supposed to be an El Nino winter this year?

The BlueJays really like the shelled nuts that the kid put in the bird feeder. They are very difficult to get a photo of...very quick to fly off.
