BeforeDid some cropping, then took out a stop sign, vehicle, and a couple of light poles. Much better......
After - Click on picture to enlarge.Have not been around the "land of blog" a whole lot lately, as the weather has been absolutely beautiful and have been spending a lot of time outside enjoying the sunshine, beautiful flowers and fresh air. And sneezing !!
Set out on a mission to take pictures of what is in bloom in the neighborhood, and after only 2 pics, the batteries were dead, and the extras were also. Guess that was a sign that I needed to get some work done, instead of playing.
Think I have finished planting annuals in the pots for the season. I always seem to plant the same kind every year, but gave up trying something new, then have it fail. Limited amount of direct sunlight, but I love the shade I have also - sure keeps the utility bill down the the hot months and time spent in the courtyard more enjoyable. Will take pictures after the camera batteries are charged.
While doing outside clean up a few days ago, I looked up and what did I see - Beautiful blue sky, fluffy, marshmallow like clouds...........and Squiggles !! Yep! It is that time of the year, when the trees shed their squiggles . The trees have since leafed out.
Yeah! I know that is NOT the correct term for them, but it just seems to fit the ones from the oak and hickory nut trees. The fat ones that are generated from the pines - well they look more like caterpillars. Had to brush some out of my hair after being outside for a while.
And these are back also.......
The carpenter bees! This is a picture I took a year or 2 ago - no need to take another one as they all look alike. A couple of them flitted around overhead when I was working outside - did not swat at them so they did not bother me. Now if they had been bumble bees or honey bees, it would have been a whole different story - I would have run like a chicken! :-D
Just another Dab of This and That ramble.
Have a great weekend.
