We talked about beer last time, so these buds are for you (snicker). This is the Rose of Sharon I shot through to catch the Monarch that was perched atop a nearby Zinnia.


Hooray!!! My parents are coming in to visit (from Florida), and I will be spending a lot of time with the family. Sorry, that means less time on the computer, but maybe I can get some good photos out of it. I hope we can make this visit an enjoyable time for Mom & Dad. They're top quality people, and deserve the very best!


As a bonus, I'll be spending those days together with my wife. I'm smiling so much, my cheeks are sore.

I definitely relaxed this weekend, Imac. It was way too hot to do anything, anyway.

Yes Ma'am, Gaelyn. I think I could live with that.

The textures is what I liked best about this image, Lime. That was the main reason I supersized it; thanks.

The beautiful thing Joan, is how there is a loving relationship between my parents and each member of my family. I don't have one of the kids whining about spending time with their grandparents, and nobody is taking jabs at my wife. We definitely have it good in our home. I thank God for that.

Happyone, I hope my parents are enjoying the visit as much as I am. :-)

Absolutely, Mommanator
