Restlessness… and flowers

Rain on the first Monday of June. (Jun 5 3:03 p.m.)

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.

(Jun 5 3:04 p.m.)

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.

(Jun 14 5:44 p.m.)

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.

One week prior. (Jun 7 4:12 p.m.)

Between those two days, I discovered a bulb even closer to the house:

I mean, that is a bulb, right?

Arachnid on white. (Jun 14 5:43 p.m.)

The spiders sure know a thing or two about the coming attractions of the season.

(Jun 11 4:50 p.m.)

The environment is so green right now that it can throw off the auto-color balance of the camera.

Putting a dent in the gutter. (Jun 7 4:11 p.m.)

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…

(Jun 5 3:05 p.m.)

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.

(Jun 14 5:41 p.m.)

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.

(Jun 14 5:45 p.m.)

Well, that’s it for now.  Unless you want to see more rain photos.

…Until next time…

  1. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos. I live in Kansas and it’s pretty rare to experience a forest as lush as the one you show! Those blue skies are also uplifting, because it’s been pretty gray here for the past few days, too. 🙂
