Can it be the first day of summer already? Seriously, where does the time go so fast??!! But I love summer....I love the sunshine, the warmth, swimming, flip-flops, not having to wear heavy layers of clothing. It's a season of being outdoors and enjoying nature.

Last week we had a surprise visit from Colin. He's such a turkey and didn't let us know he was coming. I got a message from him with pics of our building and so I ran out on the balcony and there he was!! We had a few very nice days with him.
Also Jo-Ann stopped by to visit. She had gone with Melissa and her girls to the Children's hospital in Vancouver. It was nice to have a visit with them and catch up on our lives.

Busy little bees,
You flutter to and fro,
Visiting the flowers,
 To help the garden grow.

When you're busy working,
I know that summer's here,
Because your buzz-buzz-buzzing sound
Is all that I can hear.

Saying time flies would be an understatement and something that's be said countless times! So, we enter a new month.....heading straight for Summer. That means that by Month's end, we'll have lived here for a half year already!! Wow!!

 "So sweet, so sweet the roses in their blowing,
So sweet the daffodils, so fair to see;
So blithe and gay the humming-bird a going
From flower to flower, a-hunting with the bee."
