Oddly, the bird feeders are empty. Not even one bird the whole time I walked around my mother's yard did I see. That is strange in itself.
I've always loved this little saying that is in the Butterfly Garden. Even though nothing is blooming in that garden at the moment. The dry weather we've had has affected some of the colorful plants she has there from blooming very much. So, I spotted not one butterfly.
Most of her potted plants are looking pretty good. She waters them like crazy and this one is a Bird's Nest Fern. It is especially special to me as it came from a group of plants that were sent for Jonathan's memorial.
This is a special place we sit sometimes, especially when it is not too hot. It does have a big Sycamore Tree shading the area that my kids climbed and now grandkids climb, it is a good climbing tree for sure.
I noticed in town around the banks and office building the Crepe Myrtles are beautiful but ours here are sparse and haven't done too well. Still what blooms there are, are pretty.
MY mom puts plants in strange things sometimes. This one grows in an old grill.
These pretty little flowers don't look real, they are really healthy.
The wild Crab Apple tree is bearing fruit.
Just some more of her planted pots around the back door.
I love this plant, it is over filling the washtub she has planted it in.
There is going to be a bumper crop of figs this year, I thought I'd eat this one but it looked kind of bad and the ants had gotten to it first, darn it!
I did find an interesting web and the spider himself. He is a different looking fellow for sure.
Afternoon storms with heavy winds has caused us to lose limbs and has caused damaged on many trees.
And Mr. Big Rooster himself gave me a profile shot to show how pretty he is.
Though a little quite today in the Nature World, it was good to check things out and take time to notice it all and thanks Aisling for inviting us. Don't forget to check out the other strollers on
