Of course I always make sure I take my camera. Here are some of the shots from this weekend.
On the lower part of the yard, there is the barn and an old train station. My brother R has built a deck on the side (or the dance floor as it is more affectionately known). It's an awesome place to watch a storm in the distance, or the northern lights.
The station was moved to the farm site by the former owners. It's most frequently used for birthday parties!
R recently created a 1/4 mile running path through the bush, up the hill and then back around for he and his children to use. I didn't run it, though I walked more quickly than I might normally have because of the annoying mosquitos!
Above is part of the flower bed they planted a few years ago. One of the neighbours was clearing out the bed and gave them massive amounts of perennials. They've thrived in this environment.
The rose on the left, is a wild prairie rose. These were on the side of the road, and I don't think there was a blossom without a bee.
I tried all weekend to get a photo of this little chipmunk, and with this exception he was too fast for me!
The horses didn`t realize I was taking a photo because I was across the road.
Of course the reason I was there was to take care of this lovely lady Hollywood. For those of you who don't read the cats' blog, she had an eye surgery a couple of weeks ago and I had to give her meds over the weekend before she went the vet for her final checkup and removal of stitches. All went well!
Finally, I leave you a photo of the quintessential Prairie view from the drive home to the city. The weather was perfect!
