    Good morning everyone!  So far it’s grey here.  Sunshine on the way….hopefully.  I’ve said it before…..never had a summer like this one…!  The weather is so unpredictable.

    I just finished my morning routine.  My neighbor’s cat, that I’m looking after while she is away is having bowel problems.  I have been hiding his medicine in the food with no change.  I must say I am looking forward to her return.  I can’t give it anything else without her authorization.  Looks like he will have to tough it out for a couple more days.

    In the meantime my El Cid is doing much better.  I’m trying to fatten him up for his operation.  A little extra meet on him would be like an insurance policy.  Zorro and El Cid have become very good friends.  The kitty keeps looking for him all the time….lol.

    These past couple of weeks the flower beds have to look after themselves.  So many flowers are finished for this season.  I wonder why….must be the weather.  I did cut down a few, but I am wondering if it’s not better to let them dry a bit first.  Anyways, I like to get a head start before the mad panic with fall cleanup.

    My DD will do my hair (roots) this afternoon, and then we are all off to the soccer tournament.  It is such a nice experience.  They have music, trophys, goodies for the kids….a very festive event.  Bets part…..I will be seeing my grandboys….hurray!  I keep eliminating my poor DD who I don’t make a commotion about her….but that’s a given…always.

    Have a lovely day!

    Here is one with it’s true colors.  The nice thing about a camera and editing is that you can play around with the photos. This is the original without doing anything to it.

    Almb…lovely pictures.  Thank goodness I can go on this forum to get at least a glimpse of these flying wonders.  I have had only two sightings.  What a shame.  Mind you I do have many goldfinches at my feeders.  Here is one I fooled around with my camera.  A tad too yellow, but I liked the colors.

    Love everyone’s photos.  I don’t think I can get enough of looking at birds.  I have such a passion.  I only wish they would sit still…..lol.  Maybe then I could capture them better.  I’m what you call a picture taker in progress….Can’t call myself a photographer.  Long way to go if ever…..lol

    Good morning everyone!  Looks like summer is back.  The temperature is rising, and by Sunday we will be getting humidity again.  I won’t complain.  With the kind of summer we have had….ok….what summer, any nice weather will be nice.

    It’s a slow morning for me.  Yesterday, I barely was able to get on.  I decided to hand my CV to a representative of a marketing company.  Looks like I will be getting some hours next week.  Not sure how this works, but it should be fun.  I love talking with people so this might be a great way of getting away from the computer.

    I then stopped at my best friends, and we decided to go shopping together….then lunch.  When I got home it was quality time with my pets.  I just can’t believe how much happiness my new kitty is giving me.  I also still continue to take care of my neighbor’s cat while she is away.

    I know I was not supposed to do that, but I bought a plant….again….a deep burgundy mum.  I needed to replace the pink one I lost.  This is definitely the last plant for the year….I think…..lol.

    Have a nice day!

    No coleus and no butterflies here.  I don’t know what is going on.   On top of all that, I did see quite a few bees early summer, but for some reason there are fewer and fewer.  We are not permitted to use any chemicals on our lawns, and I do believe the government is strict with farmers and their products….so what is going on!

    This year’s asters are doing well….

    The Rose of Sharon that looked like it was dead, sprang new stems and this is what it looks like now.

    A closeup!

    Mammoth Quill…

    A lupine in progress….it forgot to bloom this spring…lol

    Pinky Winky just starting to get pink….!

    Good morning!  Looks like it’s day 3 of beautiful weather.  The sun is out and no rain in the forecast…..perfect!

    Charlene, I’m sorry to hear that the news was not that great.  On a positive note, when you see the doctor in September, he will have a procedure to help get rid of the polyps that remain or find a way to stop getting more.  It sounds complicated, but with medicine the way it’s so advanced, I’m sure you will be fine.

    I know I will be finally doing some gardening later on.  I also have to drive into the next town at some point.

    Hope you all have a nice day.

    What an interesting plant.  I’ve never seen this plant, but I will be on the lookout for it.  Wonder if it’s invasive?

    I enjoyed browsing through your lovely pictures.

    Here is a Lupine that has no idea that it’s friends bloomed and faded in May.  First time I see a Lupine bloom in mid August…lol
