Has summer arrived?
We have two patio areas here where I live… one on the sunny side, and one on the shady side. Begonias for the shady side have just been planted and that inspired me to take my camera with me to photograph them. The sunny side will have geraniums (already planted)The “fill” plants are still waiting to join them.
As you probably have figured out, I wander around in my posts! Summer reminds me of the summer cottage we had at Boundary Bay, on the Canadian side, when I was a kid… 7 or 8 years old. We had big bonfires on the beach at night, roasted marshmallows and wieners… and told stories.
Braden’s had the cabin right behind ours. He was the minister at Ryerson United Church, where our family attended. Bernie Braden, their son, was a real comic, and he was always there. He later became a famous actor in Londion, England.
My brothers and sister used to go at night and watch the rum runners crossing the border between Canada and the United States, with the police chasing after them! Quite exciting, but I “wasn’t old enough to go.” It was still exciting to hear them tell what they had seen.
