Summer solstice is less than a week away, and my Friday was filled with rain. And I don’t mean crying when I say rain, even though I have plenty to cry about. I upgraded my mobile plan (more for less), and got back into programming, rewriting expansion sound in the console emulator… and my sleeping habits have turned to crap again. I didn’t quite feel like living yesterday morning. But enough about that.
Thanks to the magic of photography, you can virtually go back in time to when there were blue skies.
Nothing says summer like your front yard looking like a jungle. Every year looks like this now.
The wildflowers are out… next to the house, anyway. Not the earliest photo of this one, but don’t let the cernuous posture fool you.
Between those two days, I discovered a bulb even closer to the house:
I mean, that is a bulb, right?
The spiders sure know a thing or two about the coming attractions of the season.
The environment is so green right now that it can throw off the auto-color balance of the camera.
Not everything about nature is wonderful. One of the squirrels inside the house acted like a rooster this morning, squeaking its head off. We got all sorts of walks of life here… not so much people where I live, but squirrels (often in trees), birds— including geese, the occasional wild turkeys crossing the road…
Hey, here’s a bit of humor: Why did the turkey cross the road? To get to the ticks on the other side. …They eat ticks. So many ticks out there.
Yeah, the St. Valentine’s flowers are past their peak. What you don’t see in frame is the fact that the space heater has been replaced with a fan. Some days in the 80s F, some days with a breeze ideal for walking… except for the wind clashing trees, sometimes sending bark and branch fragments onto the ground.
Well, that’s it for now. Unless you want to see more rain photos.
…Until next time…
