Morning Glory Bumble Bee



Look at him! I got him in mid-flight. If you look closely, you can see the shadow of his wings. I think these bumble bees live nearby. There are always two or three flying around in my garden, buzzing by me as I lounge in my hammock.

It's chilly here today. We've had some really weird warm days, punctuated by days like this where you need a sweater, and you're tempted to actually wear some socks. I'm having a difficult time giving up my leather flip flops this year. I guess it's time to break out some actual shoes. I make Kathleen wear them. Heh. I've always told her: "Do as I say, not as I do." I wonder how long that will hold up? Perhaps she's caught on to my smirking every time I say it? She's too smart for me, that kid. Today she's at Six Flags Great Escape in Lake George for Frightfest with some of her friends. My friend Kelly took them up. I bet they're having a blast. I hope she's not too exhausted. She was at a sleepover party last night. She'll be feeling it tomorrow. I guarantee she tells me she doesn't feel well tomorrow. Too bad, so sad! Off to school with you! I'm such a mean mommy.

My gosh, Sharon, I thought you had digitally enhanced that photo. I had to click on it and see it up close to realize you really caught that bee in action! GREAT photo! Love the dill collage, too...Warhol Dill!

Great photo, Sharon. The dill collage is amazing, too!

Xanti went to Frightfest at 6 flags, STL, Saturday, after the shower. Her hair was sprayed red and blue and she had on heavy eyeliner, for her photo with her mom! O well, she looked cute anyway.

I'm trying to get my crusty looking summer feet in shape for the wedding. Socks and moisturizer everyday now. I hated to give up those flipflops too!!

Confession time. I am drawn to bug and critter photos. THAT is awesome-what a great shot Sharon! The first time I saw a hummingbird moth I was in awe too-nature is just so amazing.

Can you get some toe socks? ;-)
