It's looking like a day of rain for the Summer Solstice. Somehow I don't think we will be doing any outdoor celebrating today. Ah well, rain is an important part of life too. Living in the woods the threat of fires in times of drought is always a worry.
Here are a few photos of the flora and fauna from the last week or so.
This is the time of year for Luna Moths. This one was tucked into a shaded corner outside my window. They usually like to hide up in trees during daylight hours, so I was happy to see him/her where I could get a good shot.
I thought at first this was a black swallowtail, but I see now that it doesn't have any tails. I'll have to look this one up.
The large white dahlia broke off when I was taking the plant out of the car. I've been enjoying it next to my computer.
More dahlias. I lost all mine last year in an early deep freeze, There are so many beauties out there that I am like a kid in a candy store!
This is a new, to me, passion flower. I find they winter over quite well. I consider them an investment!
I love this time of year when everything is so green and lush. Winter is very far my thoughts these days.
Wishing a Happy and Joyful Fathers' Day to all the daddies out in the world!
As always, thanks for stopping by........*s*
