Tuesday's Here Already....
The haze from the forest fire smoke was prevalent yesterday. It smelled like smoke and the true picture of the sun here was of a completely reddish sun like the glow that you see in the photo. My camera would not pick it up. A blogger friend in Tennessee also experienced it, so it was wide spread. I am frustrated with our news suppliers as we were not hearing about any forest fires in Canada. There wasn't a hint that Montana was having a forest fire either until this morning. Yesterday they did cover the fires in California, Washington, and Oregon. The smoke we had was from Canada.
It caused this kind of sights in the sky all day. This would have been a great photo but I was too late. I had just stepped out on the deck, looked up, and the sun went behind lower clouds. This morning we are now completely clear, as the wind has changed direction. We were cold this morning but it will warm up today.
I took this shot to show how the front landscaping seems to be shaping up to a better look. I decided to put my second pot of agapanthus (which have never bloomed) right behind the front one to make it look like a shrub in a pot. They sit under the flag in this photo.
The roses are doing their last rebound before cold weather sets in. I am assuming I will have to cut this back this fall.
I almost forgot to store my new months photos into a new file. I have a couple of days photos stuck in August but now I have straightened out the system. Where did the summer go? I know we will have a lot of nice weather for a month or so but it seems over after Labor Day. We have the school bus stopping by to pick up the neighbor kids and we see less kids in the stores now on the week days. I will have leaves to rake and gardens to clear but that will come in October for me. I have neighbors that will have everything tied down and done weeks before I do but I am good with that.
I have no specific plans for today. I didn't get yesterday to be a free day so I am taking one today. I hope everyone is well. I wish you to have a good day. Thanks for checking in on my spot.
