No longer ominous…

Hard to believe the sky went from grey and creepy to beautiful and vibrant! (This was taken the same night as the previous post…love watching how a sunset progresses!)

Alien at my window…

I was not prepared to take insect portraits today, but when I saw this guy through my window I had to run outside and take a few photos. He (or she…) kept turning his head to look at me. I’m sure he doesn’t realize just how fascinating he is!

The last one…

The butterflies have left our garden. Summer is coming to an end. Here is one last shot to hold you over until next year! Now, time to focus on some fall foliage 🙂

 

 

The first of many…

Summer is just about over, but I’m still seeing daily butterfly visitors in the backyard. Our butterfly bushes have grown to the size of a small tree! They are beautiful though, so I’ve been waiting until the season is over to cut them back. Luckily for me, plenty of photo opportunities!

 

A Quote that has become stuck in my head…

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Seuss

I’m surprised that I haven’t heard this one before! I love this quote. It may become my favorite. You can relate this to any number of things, and in each case, it is 100% true. What does it mean to you?

 

Highlighted clouds…

 

Today is gloomy. Lucy and I ran a few quick errands and, luckily, made it home just before the big storm. Thunder and lightening galore! I’m enjoying watching the rain out my back windows, but fingers crossed the day ends with some clouds like these. An exclamation point to the end of the day!
