The Latest Buzz…

(Please click to enlarge the photographs.)

Before we get the latest buzz, let's just feast our eyes on this beauty.  She was looking a little weary the other day.  I raised her pot up out of the water, plucked off a few spent flowers, and had a long talk with her.  I told her she was pretty, that the sun would soon kiss her face and that we are fortunate to have her as a visitor.  I think the pep talk helped.

Witnessing a bar room brawl.  Nasty barbs are being tossed around, all over the place.

Sipping the good stuff!

She's a buzzing and a sipping!

I noted more green coloring than in years past.  Perhaps this Monarch is going camouflage.  It was a break in the heavy rains.  Surely the birds are about looking for groceries.

Look!  The Monarch nursery is busting loose.  This guy’s planning his get-a-way.  Seriously, he did not like me messing within the area.  I worked quickly.

He was climbing up to find out what was taking place.  He quickly began his descent.

More beautiful than yesterday.  So many flowers yet to bloom.  I'm hoping these little Zinnias don't catch fungus.  Let's enjoy them while we can.

  1. Beautiful photos of a gorgeous garden and clever captions to boot!

    • Thank you, Sweetie. Those little bees just made my day! And then, the nursery; oh my! There are so many joys out there among the puddles. :)

    • Are you still OK? The news out of Texas is so scary. Terrible flooding. Sending good wishes to you, Margie, and to everyone.

    • Our family is so fortunate. We have been blessed with only minor concerns, sadly so many others have suffered greatly.

      I go into the garden and all seems surreal. Plants and trees surrounding us appear tropical-like. I try not to fall into a false sense of illusion, knowing that at some point the heat will come, and with it the decline of this awesomeness.

      Retreating to the indoors and hearing the media reports, the sad reality hits. So many folks have lost everything. Thanks so much for your thoughts, Sharon.

      ❤️
