The first shot is the only one which wasn't taken this week or weekend but I've been meaning to use it for a post and it's a fairly recent shot.
It cracked me up because the bird looked like it was floating on its back or maybe doing a birdie version of a backstroke.
I love the way my subdivision is canopied in green this time of year. I also like bare trees against the sky in the winter but the shade is great in the summer. The shot above was taken this week in the subdivision where I live. The shot below was taken this week at Duke University and the sea of green is also apparent there. At first I was pleased that I was able to take a bunch of photographs of the cardinal below and then I started worrying about him because he wasn't moving at all. I ended up walking onto my deck to make sure he was ok and he flew off so I was relieved that he didn't seem injured. There are so many flowers starting to bloom that each day I check to see if any new ones are adding their splash of color to my garden.
We are continuing to have rain at least a few days a week which is keeping everything fresh as the heat sets in.I was please to see the first morning glories of the season blooming. I do so love them.
Only a few of the purple cone flower are blooming but there are lots of buds holding the promise of more to come.
I took the last shot outside my dermatologist's office building. I always enjoy seeing the planters filled with colorful plants in the summer which many offices have.
