... it started out a little rainy, then got sunny.
... it's a work day.
... I didn't have anywhere particularly "fun" to go.
But, it's the 12th, so I needed to gather 12 photos for the 12-of-12. For more info, visit Chad Darnell's page... he's the guy who started this all & who posts the links to other 12-of-12ers.
Time to sweat with Debbie Siebers.
Since I'm in the basement (with the camera), I stop at the "Wall" and snap a shot of all the yummy goodness that I've been making since June. What's your favorite jam? Apricot, Cherry, Cherry-Almond, Nectarine, Blueberry, Blueberry-Nectarine, or Strawberry?
Walking out the front door, camera in hand, and who is visiting my Rose of Sharon? The hummingbird! (see her just to the right of the highest flower?)
UGH! I hate road work. It happens ALL SUMMER LONG in Buffalo, NY. Maybe it's because we have 8-months of winter!??!
I couldn't help but think of Frankenstein when I saw this cement "face". The rain even gave if the look of hair.
(nothing to see here)
Home again & I have a couple new flowers in bloom this month.
Got a little "artsy" with this shot. My dad made me this bird house years ago... but it was never occupied. Now it sits just outside my front door.
It was a warm & humid day today. What better way to cool down that with some "light" reading. I'm almost done with David Copperfield by Charles Dickens; page 814.
(this squirrel had to be almost 100-feet off the ground!)
View from the porch:
The Trumpet Vine has flowered (making my front yard Hummingbird Heaven) and the new grass is growing. It wasn't a spectacular year for my flowering plants... but with all the shade we get, I shouldn't be surprised. Maybe next year, I'll add more hostas to the gardens; they love shade.
Hope you're having a wonderful August. See you next month!
