The month of May-hem is finished. It’s a miracle I got any photos to use for this month’s challenge with all the indoor activities that went on this month….birthdays, our niece’s high school graduation, Mom’s Day, student presentations, final grades and semester wrap up, end-of-the-year awards for Peanut’s school….plus, I had to cover for an employee who took some vacay days.
Whew….bring on June. But before that happens, we’re to share our May photos for PJ’s monthly challenge. This month was Outdoor Activities. Now, I could have provided tons of indoor activity pics this month, but let’s see what’s in the May file for outdoor fun.
The very first outdoor activity I look forward to in the spring is watching the hummers return to middle Missouri. As soon as I see a couple hovering around where the feeder should be, I quickly mix up the nectar and find the feeders that were so efficiently packed away for winter.
Next on the list is usually hauling out the fairy garden furnishings and setting up the village with Peanut. This year, we have a new resident to the fairy garden area. He’s yet to be named, although we have some great choices via a Facebook poll. Artemis? Howard? Gizmo? Elmsworth? Waldorf? Ashford? Timber Who? Winston? George? Professor? Snoops? Which is your favorite?
I mentioned our niece’s high school graduation. The ceremony itself was indoors, but her after party offered an opportunity to take a few photos outside to commemorate her milestone event.
Something has been busy with outdoor activities in our yard. We have about a dozen of these holes in the back part of our property. Another Facebook questionnaire resulted in everything from armadillos to earth nostrils.
Beware small children welding water guns. This favorite outdoor activity is in full swing now that temps have warmed and Missouri humidity has increased. Cabo is their favorite target…much to his enjoyment!
Outdoor activities will abound the next few months. To kick off the season, blog hop over to PJ’s on May 31st and see what other outside activities happened this month.
