What a weird week! Our pictures look pretty normal, but this week just seemed out of kilter to me. Today was nice & low-key, so maybe this next week won’t feel so odd.
Sunday, August 4th
A friend from church rode her motorcycle on Sunday. I had to get a picture :)
The daylilies are winding down.
The flower garden Dr. M planted for me is just popping with color! This picture is not enhanced in any way!
The yarrow is still pretty with its more subdued color palette.
Monday, August 5th
I’ve been drinking mostly water lately. Today I added blueberries – yum!
The last daylily of summer :(
Bumble on the hanging basket.
Tuesday, August 6th
Tuesday was for the birds – ha! Here’s a house finch.
Hummingbird on a wire.
Wednesday, August 7th
We had pictures taken for the church directory. Our appointment was at 7:10. We got home at 9:45.
The State of the Bug: Tired & annoyed!

Rainbow after the storm.
Friday, August 9th
I was originally going to get 15 bags of mulch for the church yard. Dr. M said he didn’t think 15 bags would fit, so I just got six. Here’s the Bugly with three bags still in it. I don’t know why he thought 12 more bags wouldn’t fit. Ha! I do NOT have good spatial orientation.
Our army of tomatoes is growing. The small ones are volunteers. The larger ones are Fourth of July tomatoes (just a tad late).
Saturday, August 10thI posted this on Facebook: I used to be the Four Leaf Clover Queen (well at least the Queen of our yard) - my bible had dozens of four (& five & six) leaf clovers pressed in its pages. I finally decided to quit picking them & now I just take pictures. I have a "pet" four leaf clover in our yard. Periodically I go by & grin at it. So I had to run out & take a picture.
Another shot of the flower garden – again, this is unedited. Gorgeous!
This hummingbird came by while Dr. M was checking out our volunteer sunflower. She didn’t see anything she wanted so she went on her way.
Every time the neighbor across the street mows, his boys get out there with their mowers. It’s just about the cutest thing ever. This isn’t a great picture – I was trying to be sneaky.
Go to Mamma Fran’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
