Fifty One Snaps......
My first zinnia shot for the summer. When I planted the seed I did not know if things would turn out. I succeeded in taking the one crowded row into transplanted two more rows. I will be having a large volume of shots of zinnias for a very long time.
As I walked out into the humid evening, the camera immediately fogged over causing this special effect. As hot as it was, I ended up taking 51 different shots last evening. I think that is a record number for the shoot except for the 71 taken at a hot air ballon show. Anyway, I edited out 37 photos to share from that pile of 51 photos.
I have various sizes of sunflowers growing. I keep transplanting the smaller ones into a fine straight row. The high humidity seems to be what they want as this one plant has doubled in size the past week. If you have followed me for long, you know that I have to count them to know how many I have. I think there are seven of them but I had some late starters come up the past week.
The flowers surrounding the tomatoes and herbs also liking the hot weather. I am watering them every day now and they do respond to good treatment. I never expected this planing of the box to turn out so successfully.
I have decided to not go to work on the old place today. The heat index by mid morning will be 103 degrees F. What I need to do is outside trimming and mowing. I may try to get up there tomorrow very early morning. We are suppose to have a new roof put on the old house but that seems to be delayed as I doubt the company can work on a building, shingling, in the high heat.
I appreciate your stopping by today. I wish everyone to have a good day.
