I don’t know where the summer has gone.  It is almost the end of July and it feels like the summer just started.  I have been working in my gardens, flowers and vegetables, and taking a lot of pictures.  The weeds have been a real pain to keep up with, digging and pulling–too much rain!

Tomorrow my niece is stopping by for a photo shoot with her and her dragon lizard, Navi.  That should be a lot of fun!!  Hopefully Navi will cooperate and I will be able to post some pictures of her later this week.

One thing I have noticed this year is the low number of butterflies I have in my gardens.  The butterfly bushes usually have a numerous amount of these beauties fluttering around.  If I have 5 on the bushes at one time that is a lot. However, I do have two Monarchs (one male and one female) fluttering around! Anyone else notice the drop in the butterflies in their area?  If so, I would like to hear your thoughts on the population drop.

I did post some new black and white images and some color images of flowers from my garden.  If you have a chance, stop by and browse.

That’s it for now!  I shall return!
