Although not a Facebook person I do like that Facebook feature I’ve noticed lately that lets me look back over the years to see what I blogged about on each successive date. Checking back this past week I have noticed a pattern in my blogs for this summer time period and it appears the pattern is again the same this year. Guess I’ll just call it my annual mid summer blog stumble problem. Seems to happen each year about this time and I see posts where I only blogged one line or one paragraph and in some cases I didn’t blog anything at all. Today and yesterday have been good examples of that trend. Pheebs and I did head out both mornings but I could not seem to get interested in anything and our rides were on the short side. Did manage a few rural photos this morning though

HOW NICE TO HAVE COUNTRY ROADS ALL TO ONESELF
Things have been growing like gang busters around our yard so despite today’s humidity in the air I did manage to get a bunch of yard maintenance done before having to finally retreat inside and throw myself into the shower to get cooled off. Next month at this time we will be fast closing in on September and cooler dry air. Yay team.
SOMEWHERE IN THAT GREEN JUNGLE IS OUR HOUSE
HEY I THINK I SEE IT IN THE BACKGROUND THERE SOMEWHERE
ECHINACEA OR CONE FLOWER
Sunshine finally broke through about mid-afternoon and we ended up with a beautiful looking day. Took my Nikon D7200 and 35mm prime Nikkor lens for a walk around the front yard and scrambled me up some flower photos for tonight’s post.
PURPLE HOSTA FLOWERS
Just as in life it sometimes takes darker days to make us really appreciate the brighter days when they finally do come along. Too many sunny days in a row can get boring just as too many cloudy days can become depressing. In between is a nice healthy mixture with a definite tilt towards brighter sunny days. Luckily for we folks here in southern Ontario I think in the long run we do get the best of the best when it comes to just the right amount of sunshine to basically keep one from becoming too bored or too depressed.
By tomorrow night at this time I should have myself well immersed in my new Smartphone. It is due to arrive Friday but it is not the Motorola Moto G5 we had originally ordered. Due to a last minute ker-fuffle with the on-line phone order Kelly cancelled it and we backed up a bit and re-thought our strategy. With some new found facts in front of her Kelly called Bell Telephone direct and negotiated a sweet deal on a Samsung Galaxy A5 phone with a low monthly payment plan plus some perks. Good thing I didn’t call Bell or they would probably have sent ME a lump of coal and of course not knowing any better I would have thought that was just groovy. Can you imagine me trying to dial a lump of coal. I can:((
GROANER’S CORNER:(( A little boy walks up to the preacher after church one day and says, "Preacher, when I grow up and get a job, I am going to give you a lot of money." The preacher says, "Why do you want to do that?" The boy replies, " Because my Daddy said that you are the poorest preacher he has ever heard."
The Associate Minister unveiled the church's new tithing campaign slogan last Sunday: "I Upped My Pledge - Up Yours."
- Don't let worry kill you, let the church help.
- This being Easter Sunday, we will ask Mrs. Lewis to come forward and lay an egg on the altar.
- Why is a government worker like a broken shotgun? It won't work and you can't fire it.
Dewey have to eat our carrots Mom??
Your landscaping efforts have surely paid off. The results are beautiful!ReplyDelete
With your camera setup even hosta flowers are beautiful!ReplyDelete
Wow!!! Beautiful pictures of those flowers. That camera is working well for you.ReplyDelete
Your yard does look like a jungle! But lots of nice flower shots. I like those neon ones!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful garden you have in your front yard. Tonight's flower photos are some of the best yet. So happy you went outside to take them this afternoon to share with all of us. Thank you.ReplyDelete
We do have a good mix of weather in this area, works very well for us too.ReplyDelete
When I married several years ago there was only one flower rule to follow....forget the roses because Shasta Daisies are my absolute favorite. I love all the flower pictures and they are absolutely wonderful. Those Daisy photos bring such a big smile to my face. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Beautiful flower pictures. I'm glad you took the walk around your yard. Here in Kansas in the middle of the USA it has been HOT and my flowers aren't looking too happy. I'm ready to fast forward a couple months to cooler (I hope) weather. Saw a long range forecast that says our Fall is going to be warmer than usual - clear up till November!ReplyDelete
