To be quite honest, I was out of flower photos, so I took a walk in the neighbourhood and took this photo in the neighbour’s garden.FOTD 12th August 2021: Hydrangea
If you live next to a murder (just the right word for it) of crows there is always pandemomium, especially when they cannot agree who gets the best place.
And if you live in a town with an ice cream bar, in Summer there is always pandemonium outside until you get your ice cream.RDP Thusday: Pandemonium
I love those morning clouds that get together and take a journey over the landscapes until eventually we are left with cloudless blue skies. Another Summer day has arrived in our area and I am so glad. After weeks of rain, storms and grey skies Summer has at last arrived. Probably I will be complaining in a week about the heat, but that’s life. Otherwise I enjoyed the weather yesterday at home and had no inclination to go anywhere. I spent my time making the daily bread, a little bit of computer (perhaps a bit more than a little) an organising my online shopping for Friday delivery. I am then sure of a delivery slot on Friday, although I rarely have difficulty. Since the pandemic panic has subsided there are always chances for a prompt delivery. I just have to be careful that I do not forget anything. This Sunday No. 2 son with his tribe will be visiting but I have everything organised.
Meanwhile the butterflies have began to pay their visits: not so many at the moment and mainly just the tortoiseshell type. I just wish they would unfold their wings for a good photo. I have to keep my eye on the front garden where they like to arrive due to the butterfly bush (buddleia). That acts as a magnet to them.
I saw this strange bug sitting on a leaf. I was not sure if he was just relaxing or had a mobility problem. I have no idea what it was, but he did not seem to be doing any harm.
At last I managed to capture the flight of the bee as it was approaching the dinner table.
They were also busy on my sweet pea.
Otherwise nothing special happening. Today I will also be at home, baking a bread (the dough is already rising) and probably again tidying more in my basement room.
I was just preparing to close down the computer and move onto the morning chores when I had a visitor. I naturally had to take a portrait of him, although I think he was waiting for some treats rather than an additional photo in his album.
May it be a good day, if not then make the best of it. I also have those days – who doesn’t?
