Random Thoughts

It's hard to believe we are more than halfway thru July.....where did summer go to?  I have worked more this year which would explain some of that.  I am doing the junior golf league again this year which is, as always, a lot of fun.  I seem to get more younger kids each year which makes it harder for me but they are so damn cute it's worth it.  Might explain why the first week someone reported that there was an "over-zealous mother" driving around the course in a golf cart!

The finches have decided the boston ferns are there just for them & have been nesting in them all year.

They were supposed to start digging the money pit today but I put them off until next week as I need to move some plants from one of the gardens.

Garden Tour

I love having various pots of flower around the yard & patio
There are 3 different pots on the steps here but they have "exploded" this year & look like a waterfall of plants

I have finally finished mulching all the flower beds......this is just a small section of my big garden that goes across the back yard.  It took a couple of weeks to finish as I had to get really  brutal as it was getting too overgrown.  Now you can see the individual plants in there!

I just love's a great shade plant!
Of course I have lots of hosta

Mother Nature painting

I am totally fascinated by this begonia

How does something so wrinkly & nubby get to look so stunning?

These leaves are both sweet potato vines
Another begonia

Japanese painted fern........Mother Nature is very talented!

 I was sitting at my desk last weekend & this was the view from my window.  These shots were taken in the span of approx 20 mins

One of the things I like to try taking pics of is the sun shining through the cloud or the trees this
.....or this one that I played with different processing with.

Kinda cool don't you think?
