    With the hot weather, Snowy heads for cool water when I take her for a walk.  She rests for about two minutes with her stomach in the creek and takes a drink.
    A family of Canada geese has adopted the marsh on Rt. 136 as their home.  They stay quite close to the road, despite the heavy traffic.
    Some small things: A beautiful small moth was on the window frame Lynn was painting.  A nest for wasp larvae was on the underside of the propane tank cover.  Blueberries and raspberries are maturing in our field.  The deer flies have replaced the black flies as our constant companions outdoors.
    On June 16 we went to Lyme, NH to celebrate Addy's 2nd birthday.  Lynn gave her some dress-up clothes.  Addy enjoys playing mommy to her dolls.  Here's a good portrait of Addy with her infectious grin.
    In preparation for our party June 23, we painted the front of the barn, put crushed stone on the front path, laid a new path from the house to the barn, and put up two swings near the river. There were 37 people at the party, including Betsy Bridges, Jim McLeod-Warrick and his mother, and the Wolavers.  Everyone brought food, some canoed, and some hiked the trail.
    June 21 was the latest sunset of the year.  This picture was taken at 9:30 p.m.

Feature - This spider chooses yellow flowers to hide on.  See other art photos.
