Gardening, Caturday and fireworks - Actifit Report Card: July 4 2020

in Actifit4 months ago (edited)

Today was not a walking day. It was just too hot during the day and in the evening we visited with relatives for the 4th of July holiday. But I got plenty of steps because I was working around the house, weeding, watering, picking basil, making pesto etc.

Here are some pictures from the day. Let’s start with the garden.

I love my garden because there is always something blossoming this time of year.

These first two pictures are of flowers that actually all dropped their blossoms a few days ago, and I’m showing them to show the progression of different things blossoming around the garden.

And here are the things that are blossoming now.


White lilies:

Geraniums and marigolds:

Now for subject two for today - Caturday! As we all know Saturday is a great day for sharing our kitty pictures. So here is Angel!

And the final topic is 4th of July - a great holiday here in the U.S. Normally we put out a blanket down by the lake and watch a giant display that is put on by the local fire department from a boat. But they didn’t do it this year because of the pandemic.

So we had a backyard fireworks display at the home of my sister and her husband (@preparedwombat), with the kids lighting small, legal fireworks that you can get at any store here. Meanwhile the neighbors were shooting the big ones! So we got to enjoy both.


The neighbors:

Is that the St Joseph Lily in pink and white, what an enjoyable flower to grow. Marigold and Geranium more common in our region.

Trust you had a wonderful day celebrating, time still needs to be found spending with family something we still not able to do.

Great fireworks display photography, hope not the loud banging ones that affect the animals everywhere.

Hi @joanstewart! That is possibly the name of the lilies but I planted them so long ago that I don’t remember. The pink ones are up to my knee cap in height. The white ones are almost as tall as me! I have to tie them up or the fall as soon as they blossom.

The fireworks next door were indeed the loud ones and we braced for each one. It is hard on pets. Fortunately my sisters dog and cats got comforted and were doing okay.

Thank you for visiting!

Ha ha if it is the flower I am thinking of they have a gorgeous perfume, just watch not to pollinate when smelling them!

We are able to purchase herbal remedy called "Rescue" for humans and pets during thunder storms or when people insist on using loud bangs, most definitely do work in helping pets to relax, not sure if something like that is available where you live.

I haven't heard of it. But none of our pets (or my sister's pets) really suffer at all. They might be just a bit nervous. But I know people whose pets are absolutely terrified, and they definitely need something like that!

Dog that adopted us is one that literally goes lame for about three hours after lightning storms, never had a pet so terrified. Have a wonderful week.

So glad you came to visit! Everyone but the pets loved the fireworks.

Thank you! You guys are amazing hosts. So fun. And I should have named you in the post! (Fixed!) ❤️

Everything is looking gorgeous! I cannot wait for Spring this side of the world... so I can get stuck into the garden and we can enjoy the long summer days and beautiful evenings outdoors!


Yes I'm truly enjoying this weather and being in the garden. We have very harsh winters here, so I love every minute. I look forward to seeing your garden pictures when spring comes. Thank you so much for your visit, @jaynie. And thank you for the tip!

13K steps are really great. All the pictures are nice. Have a good day.

Thanks very much @deepu7!

I loved your plants! They look so beautiful. I can tell you take care of them. I was amazed with the ones on the second picture ♥️

Thank you, @marvic-1194. I do try to take good care of them, but mostly I plant easy-care flowers! 😄

Thank you for visiting my post!

Hahaha, I see. But anyway, taking care of them is the most important part here. Not many people are so worry about taking care of a plant, for example. They just let it dry or just don´t plant any.

Nah, you´re welcome!
