The longest day of the year

It's officially summer! And, yes, it has been a long day. I didn't go to work. I watched, and in a very small way, took part in the reconstruction of my pond. The contractor was excellent!

The sun was blazing hot and I am sunburned, smell of sweat and pond sludge and algae, so I think I'll shower now...

I can't wait to show what took place today. I'll tell tomorrow and catch up with everyone's blog, too.

Okay, here are two photos from the day:

It's a good thing that we have a wide gate to the yard. The pond was drained and the hose sprung a leak. A mess.

The only visitor I've seen at the hummingbird feeders since Tuesday was this guy. I have been pouting about it. Around 5:00 p.m., I saw a lady hummer visit. She made my day!
I smell badly. Off to the shower...

Ahhh nothing like a shower when you are all done sweating in the hot sun.
Can't wait to see the results of the pond fixing.

I love garden photos! I just put some of my own up. Looking forward to seeing more shots of the progress!

I've had a hummingbird ONCE at my house in 6 years. I'm praying for a pass-through this fall.

Can't wait to see what you've done with the pond. We were just talking yesterday that ours needs a reworking too!
