What's Going On
The hummingbirds have been giving me a run for my money when it comes to keeping the feeders full for them. We've had multitudes of them this year. I love watching their antics.
I captured this Egret at just the right moment for his reflection to be almost perfect in the water. These are the kinds of photos that I'm always trying to 'capture'; somehow the photo is never quite as beautiful as the actual moment was.
The Black-eyed Susans and sunflowers have been such bright spots in my days. Such common, humble flowers but I love them! We've had a new visitor in the yard this Summer...a red fox squirrel. He is cute as a button. He zips into the sunflowers, quick as a blink he's up the stalk, nabs a sunflower head, and rushes away with his treasure. :D I know to a lot of people they are pests, but I think he is simply charming! :D
And last but by far not the least, I have been crocheting a tee shirt rag rug. Randy only wears white tee shirts---he has a mustache---need I say more? :) He's lucky if he gets a month's wear out of a new one before he drips coffee or chocolate on it. I can't get the stains out, and as I was gathering up a pile of them to stick in the 'rag bag' for the garage, I decided to just make a rug out of them. I love doing these rugs, and haven't made one in a long time. I love it! I have no idea how big it will be. I'm just stripping tee shirts and crocheting. Really relaxing and almost zen-like. I have a LOT of dingy, white tee shirts. :D
