Well we are back to hot and more hot. Yesterday, the youngster said the driveway was burning his feet and that was at 5:30 in the afternoon. Got out this morning and the sun was already cooking. The lizards were warming in the sun.
Where is this, you ask. Well, Mr. U has started a metal recycle area in the way back. Thank goodness we can’t see it from the house. I guess the pipes were heating up and the lizards were enjoying the warmth. The blackberries are very abundant this year. All the rain has given us a bumper crop. They taste pretty good right off the bush.
And in case you are wondering, I ate the ones in the pictures. I could pick them and make a cobbler, but I am finding them more enjoyable when they are warmed by the morning sun and popped right into the mouth. The wild morning glory is not doing much this year. One little blue bloom this morning.
There is an empty bird’s nest in one of the grape vines. This is a muscadine grape. If we don’t cut back this winter it will soon be wild.
The dragonflies are everywhere. I don’t think these are the ones that eat mosquitos. the mosquito hawks are big and black and seem to fly in groups. I will have to try to get out at dusk and capture them on film. I don’t know what these other ones eat, but they like to hang out by the blackberries.
Have a great day and get out and enjoy the weather. Oh, one more picture. Baby Beau wanted his picture taken. He is an American Bulldog and is an eighty pound baby.
Oops. Just realized I didn’t even show you any flowers. I don’t know what these are they just come up every year. They spread like ground cover. I should show you a picture of all of them. Next time.
I don’t know what these little white flowers are either. We have a lot of volunteers coming up this year. Do you see the those little black things on the leaf? Are those some kind of eggs. I magnified this picture about a zillion times if that gives you an idea how tiny those little eggs are.
