Sunday afternoon I asked Myguy if he wanted to watch a show.
Nodding "yes" ... I pulled him out back- to the potting shed.
"You have to see this," I told him.
Sitting in thee olde metal lawn chairs; we didn't have to wait long
when a hummer zoomed past his head; barely missing him.
Soon came another... and another... and more.
By now we were counting 8-10 at a time.
The star of the show: was Olde Ruby perched here
on the welcome sign. He flew his tiny body like
a B52 Bomber, chasing away every other hummer who dared come near
We sat watching in the hot sun until we started to melt;
then decided to drive down the road to the slough.
--Such a beautiful day!
As we passed this county road,
Myguy noticed this wasper nest.
I stayed in the Jeep;
he got out to
get a closeup shot on his phone.
He later found out he'd picked up a mess of seed ticks.
and he's still itchin like crazy;
I don't know what's worse... seed ticks or chiggers.
It's a toss up.
This is what greeted us at the water.
We'd brought a 5 gallon bucket along,
as I'd been wanting to pull up a couple lilies to carry home
and plant in a water trough at the garden.
Unfortunately they kept breaking off when we tried to pull on em.
-And after seeing a water moccasin swimming around; neither of us cared to
wade in and dig in the mud.
I did wish we'd have brought the kayaks though.
It would have been a perfect afternoon to paddle around.
Dragonflies kept landing on the dock all around us.
This one became today's scripture picture.
"My brethren, count it all joy
when you fall into various trials,
knowing that the testing of your faith
produces patience. But let
patience have its perfect work,
that you may be perfect and complete,
