11.06.2022 Beautiful Sunset Boston Skyline

 We have been having such wonderfully warm and balmy weather that I decided I needed to see the sea! So I went to Cottage Park Yacht Club in Winthrop just in time to see a spectacular sunset.  You cannot just order one of these to appear.

The colors of the sky were magical with the sun setting behind the Boston skyline.

The colors were intense.

If you look closely, you will see a plane taking off from Logan Airport and ascending into the clouds.

I'll bet the view from the airplane was spectacular as the plane followed along the coast.

Up, up and away!

And then it is gone! Make me miss my Mimi Rhodes 19. I used to love to sit on her deck and watch the sunset while waiting for the launch. The launch driver always promised not to forget me!

And just like that it started to rain! A light sprinkle - just enough to feel the precipitation.  I do enjoy a balmy evening!

We have been sitting outside on the kitchen porch during these warm evenings.  A cold front is on the way so we have to enjoy all of this nice weather as much as we can. Instead of going to the Patriots game I stayed home and we did much needed chores. The boys were really good and stayed up with me for four straight hours of yard work. 

On the good news side of things, our bunny is still alive!  Apparently, he stays under the back deck and darted out really fast when we were all on the deck. The boys chased after him but he cleverly slipped though the fence. Run bunny run!  I hope he finds a nice winter home. Now I feel certain that the dogs were chasing after him earlier in the week as they were running in a fever pitch through some rose bush brambles. I hope they do not catch him. One burial is enough.

This warm weather has some Spring flowering plants confused and blooming now.

Cherry blossoms.

One mixed up goose in this next picture. Here is a domestic goose traveling with the Canada goose. Wonder if he is a local goose or did he migrate with the Canada geese? Or are the Canada geese our resident geese? So many questions about geese!  Maybe we all have a little Spring fever in the Fall!

But the domestic goose seemed quite content to be in the company of so many Canada geese. Too bad I did not have more time to observe them.

A seasonal monkshood. The plants that survived the summer draught will stay in bloom until the first heavy frost. Coming soon, no doubt! The stalks are much shorter but at least a few bloomed.

And an unseasonal Johnny-jump-up.

My black-eyed Susan's are still in bloom.

And so are the Stella d' Ora daylilies!

It is not nice to fool Mother Nature! Remember the commercial??  

We are going to go back outside for a little while and enjoy this balmy evening. Time for dinner and we will dine by a porch light!  

Fionnegan and Gunnarr turned 9 this week. Hard to believe they are getting this old as they still run around like puppies!  We had a lot of celebrations for the day!  Please see Shorty's blog for details! (

Please stay well and enjoy the day.  
Until next time..........................
