A walk around our place

I decided to go out in search of something pretty to photograph
this afternoon, however, since we have had 30 days over 100 degrees
already this summer and very little rain I wasn't too hopeful.  The grass
is dead, the leaves on the trees are turning brown and falling- in fact
I told the kids this morning that you could almost look outside
and imagine that it was fall and 50 degrees, since the leaves are
all falling.  Kind of sad.  But, as I walked around our place I did
find some pretty things!  I hope you enjoy a little walk around
our place here in the country--

This little bee was busy on this black eyed susan!

The wind was rustling the leaves of the big cottonwood down
the road, I love cottonwood trees.

This is a pretty pink zinnia, don't you think?

I don't know what the proper name is for these little daisies,
they're only about 3/8 in. across.

We still have lots of tomatoes in the garden, isn't a warm
tomato from the garden so yummy?
The little pony on the left is LA's, her name is Smoky,
and the one on the right is PD's, her name is Spot.
These are an interesting plant, we call them Japanese lanterns,
but I'm not sure if that's their real name.  Aren't they cool?
God has given us beauty to enjoy, even in the hottest summer ever!


  1. I love a stroll around the garden to see what's happening.
    Your zinnia is very pretty and the little daisies too!
    That last plant is indeed cool - and if it turns a lovely orange colour then it's what we Aussies call Chinese Lanterns.'s pretty, whatever the name :-)
    I can't wait for our weather to warm up enough for us put tomatoes in again.
    Yours look good!
    Have a great weekend, Carmen.

    1. Thanks Trish! What is the weather like this time of year for you down there? It must not be too cold if you're finding violets- they were very pretty. (:
