Little Dog .... gone fishing

We've been spending a lot of time at the cabin and enjoying it immensely.  Spring is a splendid time to be there since we get to see, hear and feed the variety of birds as they migrate north, and watch the leaves, etc. spring to life; along with that it is much quieter than in mid summer and usually cool enough to be able to use the wood stove.  Here's a slice of cottage life ......

Little Dog fell asleep waiting for another fish to bite; she and 'dad' had caught 3 already and she wasn't ready to call it quits.

Our first hot day this spring was on May 24th when the temp. hit +33C and the leaves popped out!  This is aspen and I love the tiny heart shaped leaves that burst forth! 

 I couldn't resist these twisted trunks on some shrubbery along the water's edge.

This was a complete double rainbow although I wasn't able to capture it in it's entirety ... I think I would have had to stand on the cabin roof to do that, lol.  I like how the rainbow reflected in the water and came right across to our place.

There is a family of tree swallows nesting here.  They are very entertaining and delightful to have around.  

These are Crowfoot Violets that are in abundance just now.  Fortunately, the lawn mower passes over them and we get to enjoy them as long as they choose to bloom.  

This is the river mist that we get to see on cool mornings as the sun is rising - I never tire of seeing it.  

 This beauty was in the mail waiting to be picked up when we arrived home ... isn't it gorgeous?!  It's a beautiful gift from Valérie. I love it!
