This morning, with sunshine and calm outside the door, I thought I'd change
my header - as I often do - only to find that Blogger must be messing with
us again! Have you tried to upload a new header lately only to find your
previous ones now upload in a much larger, blurred format?
I've been playing about with this particular one above and have given up.
It just doesn't look that great, so when I have time I may just try to create
some new headers.
Also, Blogger needs to work on many things which could make posting a
lot easier - like back in the good old days!
Meanwhile, thanks again for more birthday greetings for Bob, he was
touched by your kind words.
This morning I need to water, at least the pots, as another day reaching into
the 90's is promised. We will have to prepare for storm activity on Thursday,
it could be severe as the remnants of tropical storm Elsa move through the
The fig tree continues to GROW!
Nothing stops this amazing tree - not even the severe pruning last winter.
It's loaded with fruit but of course we'll never get to pick at the top, just
too high. Birds, insects and squirrels will be happy!
This is out latest visitor, a Carolina anole lizard - green at times, brown
at others. He lives somewhere on the front porch and will hopefully
help with the unwanted insect population!
In the back garden today I noticed this juvenile Eastern bluebird - always
exciting knowing there is a new generation of these once almost
eradicated beautiful birds!
We have a pair, maybe even two, who nest in the birdhouse. We have
a real bluebird box affixed to the potting shed but they never use it,
preferring the 'apartments' in the larger house.
