Pumpkin pollen airmet issued

The bees in the garden are making emergency landings on the raspberry bush to depollen. Wonder if they race through trace and climb through rime. That is all.

Dumpster diving

That's right. Now that supermarkets are carrying liquor, they are having to throw outdated or wilted liquor into dumpsters. This Romulan Ice Ale is still pretty good.

Idaho Fishing License

You can't have blue hair apparently. Same kind of selection for eye color with the addition of "multi."

Garden going strong!

Raspberries have been on for a while.

I think the pumpkins are going to take over.

Basil for pesto!

Every spring, I pull up all the poppies that sprout. Those that sneak through to summer make the garden beautiful..

Hidden mini patio behind the pumpkins.

The bees bury themselves in the poppies. Poppy honey would make a very fine mead.

Bees in action.

While the garden grows in the heat, we watch Le Tour in the basement.

Fishing yesterday

Adding to the list of biking, running, swimming, ukuleling, I've really gotten back into fishing. For years, I've been fishing out of a canoe. This year, I started reading up on kayak fishing. I got a really good deal on a kayak that was pretty much all set up for fishing. Wow, so much better than the canoe!

A very relaxing ways to spend some time. You sit right on top of the water. For some reason the sky looks extremely big. And the logistics of landing a fish become a little more interesting in a kayak.

Been doing pretty well as far as catching fish from the kayak, and yesterday was no exception.

A month or so ago, I spent a day practicing falling off and getting back on the kayak. Up until yesterday, I've been wearing a wetsuit on my forays. Eventually, I would like to get comfortable enough to go on the ocean and fish. 

On second thought...
