    1. The crowds are everywhere thankfully we live in a small hamlet, so although it effects us shopping, it does not intrude on our home life. Keep well Diane

  2. I just LOVE your bee photos!!! So pretty and I feel so bad that the bees are declining in so many places. Hopefully, they can make a comeback.

    Have a lovely weekend and week to come, G

  3. It's Canada's 150th birthday. Maybe those Canadian carvers will do something special. Vive Le Canada! Vive La France!

  6. As always your flowers and insect photos are amazing. Will be interesting to see what the wood carvers make out of that huge stump.
