July Blooms


IMG_1975When the nights are warm and humid, we often find Tree Frogs climbing up our living room window.  I think they are attracted by the bugs drawn to the light from inside.

They leave sticky foot-marks on the window, but I really don’t mind.  It is just such fun to see them close up.

Butterfly Weed is in bloom now in the Park, and I found some Swamp Milkweed growing next to the lake the other day.  I so enjoy these splashes of color.

We were blessed with a few cooler days last week.  The Weather People called it another Polar Vortex, making it sound like the end of the world was coming, but we actually welcomed a break from the heat and mosquitoes.  Usually, by this time in July, our lawn has turned brown and crispy, but we have still been getting above average rainfall, so it is lush, green, and seemingly forever in need of mowing!

  1. What a cute little frog. Very pretty flowers too. It is the same here with the lawn, more rain than usual so more green and mowing. Hugs

    • We always enjoy seeing the frogs. Anything that eats bugs is a friend to me!
