After the last rain which totaled an inch in our rain gauge the wildflowers came alive again.
Showy Goldenrod( Solidago speciosa) and a field of Asters. I am not sure which Aster as identifying Asters always gives me a headache. A pretty purple Aster.
Not much is happening here. Same old same old. Work, eat, take some pictures, sleep and repeat. Boring and calm is just fine with me. It is supposed to be 90 degrees again today…well guess who is scheduled to work today..not me. Far Guy! He has a list of jobs a half mile long at the museum. Chance and I will hold down the fort and make sure the AC is at a proper temperature when he returns.
Chance loves to go for a ride every night. He waits patiently most nights and gets real excited when he sees me messing with my camera bag. Last night we saw a skunk in the ditch, it ran into the neighbors corn field. It was about 10 feet away from Chance hanging his head out the window. Skunks have good aim too…luckily this one did not spray…or Chance and I would have got it…what a mess that would have been. I don’t like seeing a skunk in the daytime…they are either sick or really hungry.
There are a few bees out and about. Still not seeing butterflies. I saw my first skein of birds headed south yesterday morning on my way to work, a group of about 50 geese would be my best guess. No picture…because I was driving:)
