A few flowers are blooming again. We had a brief respite of cooler air. But now it’s pretty hot again and I fear the flowers will retreat.
Ah, but you can’t question nature’s time table. You just have to enjoy it when you can and wait for it once it’s gone for the season.
This morning as I ate my cereal I was gazing out the French doors and saw a male cardinal come to drink from the bird bath.
Not a great photo I’m afraid. Taken through the glass of the doors. I was surprised the less colorful female wasn’t right behind him. But I never saw her.
I’ve always had a cardinal couple visit my patio. But this summer they’ve been missing.
Look what I found on the coffee table.
I don’t know if Ivy put it there for safekeeping or she’s trying to help me decorate the coffee table.
I watched Charlie out on the patio this morning and you could scarcely tell that his back legs are problematic for him. Did my heart good. Worth every penny I have to spend to keep my Charlie Boy pain free and happy.
For some reason I couldn’t settle on a Netflix show last night. I didn’t see any of the ones you guys have mentioned. Maybe I didn’t scroll long enough.
Then I tried to read. But I couldn’t find a book that tantalized me. After reading a few chapters of one and a few pages of another, I decided to put my Kindle down for the night and go to bed a little bit early.
Hard to believe that September will be over in just a few weeks and October and Halloween will be upon us.
I have not felt like decorating for fall. If I don’t feel it, I don’t do it. It’s supposed to be fun. And if it’s a chore, it isn’t worth doing.
This is the time to purchase a few more annuals for fall color. I bought these two coleus plants for half price the other day.
