Sat. Abrev. Post........
One swallowtail was enjoying all of the blooms in the zinnia patch. I took a lot of photos of the butterfly. I have seen a monarch at the front garden but I didn't have a camera with me at the time. I am wondering what other kinds I will get on the three rows of blooms.
It was a bright sunny day that helped to get good shots of the flowers and butterfly. It was warm out there but not extremely hot like we had the past week.
I do think I will water the flowers again this morning as a safety measure. I lost a row of petunias during the hot spell even with regular watering. I have one tomato that is starting to turn red so I don't want to have them go bad on us.
It is Saturday and we are heading for the bookstore. I have lots of chores to get done before we go but it will be nice to get a break. I did work at the house yesterday, clearing more things out of the garden shed. I was throwing things away that I had from my dad's garage. My late brother's things also hit the dust bin too. I have horse shoes that are rusted beyond recognition that I think will go away. I don't think they are salvageable unless someone can tell me how to clean them. I hope to drink coffee and have a scone today while being lazy. Thank you for stopping in today.
