One very last set of blooms on this day lily before it shuts down for the season. It looks very weathered with all the rains we have received for weeks. It is one of my favorites of the lilies but the faded color doesn't make it look very impressive.
We are having a lot of great cloud filled skies. The sky seems bluer this time of the year as the earth keeps tilting. As I walk the dog in the evening I watch the effects of the earth's changing angle by watching the moon. The moon right now is moving down in the sky in the south as I can't see it anymore with my trees blocking the view. As I walk down the street I can see that a full moon is coming soon.
The next generation of Hot Wheels guy is my grandson AJ. As you can see his dad on the left and my other son Aaron are getting into the small car racing game. AJ's brother is too young to be involved but I bet Teddy will be a Hot Wheels kind of guy too.
I am not sure who took the photo but I bet one of the daughter in laws took the shot. AJ has a great basement room in the split level house to keep the tracks set up and ready to go whenever he wants to play.
As I walked the dog yesterday afternoon I could see girls running up and down our ditches trying to net the insects. It was actually humorous to see. It is nice to have young people in the neighborhood to keep life interesting. We have the four girls to the south of us, many grandchildren of the neighbor to our east, two more grand kids to the north and two young ones on the west.
The day looks to be a good one all day. I will mow grass and be glad for good temperatures. Thanks for stopping in today.
