You'll notice a theme this week – our pictures are for the birds! Dr. M took nearly all the pictures & there was a lot of bird activity in our back yard. The bird bath was very popular since it's been so hot & dry. Here is the first of five birdbath pictures.
And here is one of our squashes. I think they look so odd while they're growing.

On Monday took these butterfly pictures – I think it's the same butterfly, but the light hits it so differently that in one picture its wings are translucent & in the other picture they're fairly opaque. Do ya'll agree – same dude?
Here's another birdbath picture. I laugh every time I see it – as Dr. M says in his Facebook caption – Did you have to do that? Heh.

With so much activity in the birdbath there is bound to be some debris. I love this feather.

On Wednesday Dr. M took this cow picture on his way home from school. I don't know why, but the combo of the color of the cow & the color of the grass is just very pleasing to me – I think this is the third cow picture I've posted for that very reason.
More birdbath fun – this little fellow is REALLY getting into the splashing!
After seeing all the little birds, this dove looks like Godzilla or something. If you look you can see a wasp taking a drink of water in the birdbath too. I have a close-up of the wasp below.

On Thursday Dr. M followed a hummingbird and a butterfly around. I think he got some pretty good shots!
Here's a close-up of that "coming in for a landing" shot

On Friday I took a picture of some banana peppers that we left on the vine to change color. Wonder if they'll taste any good?
And here is a picture of a wind chime that has been totally claimed by the tomatoes. Can you see it in there?
For reference, here's a picture from July 8th where you can see the wind chime pretty well – it's the one on the right.

Today I've spent most of the morning doing bookkeeping stuff - shredding checks for an old account, updating accounts with a new phone number, reconciling statements. I did a lot of shredding!
Then I went out into the sauna to check out the yard. It's so hot & muggy here - I really hope we have some rain this weekend! A couple of weeks ago I had taken this next picture to show how the cyprus vine was making its way up a step ladder we had left in one spot for too long.
