Its SO sad.
Â June has flown by on the speedy wings of summer.
I have been so busy living life, that I had to intentionally make time to stop and see the beauty all around me as summer races on.
Â Â Have you ever had a month where it seems like no matter how hard you try time just seems to fly past you faster than you can keep up? Perhaps it is because I was down with the pneumonia or something, but I am a little sad that this is the last Wednesday in June, and next Wednesday will be in July already.
Â Â How has your June gone?
Â Â Here are some of my favorite pictures from the last week of June here at the Welcoming House……..

nope. He is a keeper. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Do wind chimes really keep away the birds? Sparrows ate all our green bean blossoms!
I dont think it is just the sounds of the lids chiming together, Becky, it is the flash and movement as well when they catch the sun. It’s actually funny to watch, because they will totally avoid the areas I have them strung up (and we have a LOT of birds in our yard with lots of mature trees), and hop around the parts of the garden that are not yet surrounded. Since I lost two plantings of zucchini, summer squash and cukes to the birds before hanging them up and now the third planting is doing just fine, I am thinking it works wonderfully! Put something up there that will move and flash and make any kind of noise, and it will keep the birds away. I have even known people to just string those metallic streamers that you use at parties up, and the birds stay away. 🙂 Good luck! Hope you get some green beans still! 🙂
