June 2013 – A Month of Photos From The Red Double Wide

June was a wonderful and busy month.

This last week of June has brought several HOT days and the garden has really taken off! (and with some late spring rains so have the weeds!)  Needless to say I’ve spent a great deal of time over the past month in the garden. 😀

We have been getting quite a few raspberries.  If the kids stop eating them we might even have enough for some jam!

June 2013 StigDusty found this cute toad.  He kept it in a 5 gallon bucket until the girls and I got home so they could see it, and I could take a picture.  He then let it go in the garden, after naming him “Bruce the pirate toad”.

June 2013 ToadJo’s cats Boots and Tiger…Boots has six toes on her front paws, but this is not what makes her special.  Jo bought her the pink collar with her own allowance money.  We tried to tell her the cat would lose that thing the first chance she got, but for all the world Boots seems to be proud of it.  Often as not she is now referred to as “Prissy Missy”.

June 2013 CompostJo loves to read and she loves animals….this is her reading a book while the chickens and kittens play.  As you can tell by the hair, this was about three minutes after she rolled out of bed.  She would live in the barn yard, if we let her.   😀

Thanks for dropping by the Red Double Wide!

  1. I love your pictures! Your garden looks great! Ours has taken off too because of all the rain! Now I just wish it’d stop and we get some sunny, warm days. I’m worried we’re getting too much rain. The picture of Jo reading with the animals is too cute! 🙂

  2. First of all, I love the name of your blog! 🙂 Your pictures are awesome!! I especially love the one of your daughter reading with the chickens, that just captures so much of what’s good about summertime in the country!! 🙂 Stopping by from the Clever Chicks bloghop! Have a great day!!
