There has not been a lot happening lately... so I don't have anything to "tell" you... but I always have my phone camera and there are some photos I have taken this spring/summer I will share with you now.
By mid-May, the tire garden was doing well with tomatoes on the way!
At the same time, there were some beautiful daylilies blooming in another area of the yard.
Mid-May was also a good time to hit the "all-you-can-eat" crawfish buffet at a nearby casino!! This is the "bucket" you get to start your feast. The gals I went with went back for second buckets to share! YUM!
You may be a little tired of my morning walk photos but bear with me. :) I enjoy them so very much!
This little one was crossing one of the airport streets. I almost didn't see it! It blends so well... and the front of my shoe gives you the scale of the "tiny turtle."
On another morning, I glanced down just in time to see this little critter making its way across another road. When I asked it to "please stay still so I can get your picture!", it stopped, raised its head a bit, looked toward me, and waited! LOL!
During late June through July and into August, I am lucky enough to see HUGE groups of wading birds, primarily white herons with a few Great Blue herons occasionally mixed in. I don't know for certain but I believe there must be a rookery fairly close by. On some mornings, I see literally hundreds of these birds fly over... ranging from small groups of 2 or 3 birds to the huge groups I mentioned that contain more than I can count as they fly over! My best estimate is about 300 birds that I have seen in one morning. My guess is there are more I do not see... so I would bet totals in the 500-600 range. At any rate, they are beautiful to see in the early morning light as they head out for wading and dining all day.
This morning, I was a little late returning from my walk... and spotted a rather interesting "sand trap" on the golf course. :) I'm not sure if you have to "play through the puppy dogs" or what?!? They certainly seemed comfortable in the cool, damp sand.
Ending on a humorous note, I pass this driveway every morning on my walk. The newspaper that is delivered there is typically on the grass to either side of the driveway although it has hit the edges of the pavement, too. Never see it dead-centered on the driveway. So... Blogging Buddies... what day do you think was the day the newspaper was placed DEAD-CENTER on the driveway? Why, the day after the driveway had been PAVED, of course! Couldn't walk on it... thus the tape. LOL!! Never fails, does it?
As always, thank you for dropping by.
Until next post...
