Things in Bloom

It has been so hot and dry this summer that hardly anything bloomed in my yard. I just wanted to post a few pics of things that were blooming the other day. It was mostly one or two blooms per plant, so my husband would call this trick photography, making my yard look lush and beautiful. My black-eyed susans mostly got mowed over several times so that only small patches here and there bloomed this year. Hardly any of my hibiscuses bloomed either. I like the picture of the little bug in flight. See if you can find it. The althea blooms are actually much smaller than the hibiscus. I also found a cute little spider. My two kitties always follow us around the yard. I got a pic of Snowball, but TigerGirl wouldn't stand still for a pic. Both kitties also like to go on walks with us around the block. Silly kitties!

First Day of School 2012

Here we go on a new adventure! God bless my children as they go and learn beautiful things and meet beautiful people. May they always be filled with love and compassion and be protected from all harm. May their hearts always be singing a song, and may they always bring a smile to everyone they meet.
