I've been complaining about the lack of Dragonflies this summer as I was looking forward to getting lots of pictures. Alas, I'd only seen one and that just flew around for a short while then flew off. So, you can imagine my surprise when I saw one this morning.....where?....on one of the rafters in the kitchen. After taking the picture, we got a container, managed to get him in it and then let him go outside where he went flying off.
After supper last night I noticed a white egg sac on one of the tree branches so took a couple of macro shots feeling quite pleased with myself that I even noticed it. Then friends came by for coffee and as they were leaving I mentioned the egg sac and said "Come have a look, you may be able to ID it for me." The husband on close inspection, not that close mind you, says "It's a berry." I was dumbfounded. He was right, lol.
My daughter and grandson were here for most of this past week and it was so good to see them. We had a nice few days together and the weather co-operated for the most part. We met them coming back from the beach and I took this photo.
A few more pictures of odds and ends.
I went in the bedroom and looking down at the bed, this was the sight I saw. I thought it was so cute especially with the paw under the chin.
I caught this Chick a Dee eating the seeds on the Angelica. He was going through all sorts of contortions.
And the bees.
These flowers, and I can't think for the life of me what they're called, anyway they were given to me by the man who owns the greenhouses. He was going to throw them out as they were in very sad shape. He saw me there and said if I wanted them I could have them and that if anyone could get them to grow it was me, lol. So, I brought them home and planted them with little hope of seeing anything happening. So, a couple of days ago I see these lovely flowers in among other plants and am thinking "Where in the world did these come from", when it hit me that these were the ones given to me earlier this summer.
