Second day of Joe Pye weed, it's so much brighter in the sun!
And so was this little girl, just behind it.
Getting ready for her second hatch, I think.
These little birds are so fascinating to watch, bouncing on the top of the plants.
There was a new dragonfly today... and if you click on this picture and
biggify it, you'll see that those gossamer wings are shot with gold.
An admin with whom I worked at Bayer Animal Health has passed away this morning due to Parkinson's disease. She was my age... and this is so very sad to me. She was a very nice lady, who adored her husband and family.
Rest in peace, Linda.
This (haying) has finally started here... and now we are expecting severe storms tomorrow night.
Big bales are starting to appear in the fields.
I had to laugh as we drove home in the heat... because look who has joined the tail swinging line in the pond!
The other babies were sleeping in the high grass in the shade.
Here's another crop that's doing well all around us.
And I leave you with a mystery I am still trying to figure out.
About five days ago, a garden appeared out of no where on a piece of flat ground by the road that I drive down several times a day. That is a high hedge behind it... and the house sits back there at the end of a drive. I THINK the person tilled rows in the grass... I saw a little tiller standing there one day.
However... these plants you see and about a hundred others (it's BIG) appeared one day where there were none before. Are the back rows trees? I thought at first it was tomatoes and peppers, but I think now I am wrong. I am hoping to see the person whom I saw once tending to them, and I am going to stop and ask because I'm NOSY.
