It was too nice a day not to go for a drive in the country. We headed for this bird sanctuary where we saw no Herons but we saw lots of Chickadees!
Fortunately we had remembered to bring sunflower seeds.
Along the way we saw this sign and drove onto a narrow driveway and up to a somewhat dilapidated house where an old man seemed just to be waiting for us. Anyway, we bought some of his figs and he gave us a Persimmon because we'd never tasted one before. Actually, I'm not sure we've tasted figs before either since now that we've eaten a couple neither of us cares for them, I will make a small jar of fig jam tomorrow with the rest.
Pics taken along the way.. this is the Vedder Canal. The water lever is very low.
This yard had long beds full of Dahlias of every colour.
I hope you had a pleasant Sunday too.
Thanks for visiting. Granny M.
