Summer's arrival

Summer arrived on Sunday evening just in time for my patio party.  All afternoon the clouds threatened rain but just as the guests began coming to the door the sun came out. It was cool but pleasant enough to sit outside and chat.

We've had two days in a row of parties since my son Jamie came over from Vancouver to celebrate his 22nd birthday on Monday.  Here we are enjoying dinner at the picnic table on the grass.  We even had to wear our sunhats!

Of course the dogs love it when we eat outside.  They're always on standby waiting for something to drop in front of them.  The Sheltie under the table is my sister's dog Zoe. And that's Geordie looking his most appealing behind the bouquet of flowers.

The forecast is for sunny warm weather for the rest of this week.  I think we can safely say that summer is here.


  1. Your party looks like a success! How fun!

  2. Just in time! Looks like everyone had fun and a feast.

  3. Looks like your new backyard will have many dinners to come.
    Geordie is a very handsome fellow !

    cheers, parsnip

  4. The last photo really touched me!
    The pretty flower arrangement!
    The dog!
    What a lovely day.
