Kevin wanted to watch his ghost show on TV, which spooked Sara a little bit. Even after telling her several times it is only a show, she did not like it. So, we two sat outside and watched the clouds in the sunset instead. The Sun and the clouds provided quite a bit of a display. In the distance, we also could see some Mammatus Clouds. Sara enjoyed this so much more than the silly ghost stories. Joshua keeps her company while they both watch Spongebob. 😉
🌞 Summer Time 🌞
Tomorrow we suppose to get a break from those three digits, hot and dry days. Hopefully, the storm won’t miss us. Because, the soil needs water. But we definitely will appreciate the “cold front” in the mid 90s (34ºC). During today’s afternoon and evening, we could watch the clouds coming into DFW. It is always fascinating to see the clouds. They look like mountains, we don’t have in the prairie.
Today was just one of those days, I didn’t feel like doing much. Some days are there for being lazy and do a whole bunch of nothing. But I still went outside to do my daily photography. Kevin found a young toad, when he worked on mulching the west side of the house. A Pearl Crescent butterfly enjoyed some nectar from the blooming Lantana flowers. The Texas sunset was beautiful as always. And I could capture the Moon in some clouds; a very beautiful and dramatic setting, we’ve had this evening.

Due to our vacation in the Pacific Northwest, the Paul McCartney concert, and Sara’s dance recital, I took a little break from “Flower Friday”. But now, we are back to normal. And I’ll post photos of beautiful garden flowers and wildflowers each Friday again. Enjoy! 😉
After Kevin mowed the lawn, I checked on the plants in the greenhouse and enjoyed the view of the setting Sun, this evening. We have nine tomatoes growing so far. The plants are doing well in the raised beds. Last week, we’ve had lots of rain, which was good for the garden, and our water bill. 😉
This Summer, we will end up with a lot of sunflowers. The birds kept dropping the seeds in the soil, while they were picking for different seeds on the plant and from the bird feeders. They planted some corn as well. In Autumn and Winter, the birds will be rewarded with fresh seeds. It’s nice to have little feathered and furry friends as garden helpers.
