Project 365 – Week Twenty-four

There is one Important Matter this week. Tomorrow is the day I sing my solo verse for the church service. Fortunately we're down to our summer faithful in the congregation. Unfortunately there's a guest priest who is apparently pretty popular. I think I'll just close my eyes.

Sunday, June 6th
On Sunday I came home from church & inspected our garden. Dr. M was taking pictures of the beds so he captured one of me. I look so excited, don't I?

Monday, June 7th
On Monday Dr. M saw this doe with her fawn. He took a number of pictures & the fawn remained just as busy with eating in each one. Reminded me of me!

Tuesday, June 8th
On Tuesday Dr. M captured a few shots of one of our fake finches. You may or may not be aware that finches have a special ability to eat while perched upside down. So their feeders are designed for that type of eating - & to discourage other birds. Well we have some intrepid birds who have adapted to this style of feeding – they dive down to get the seed, & then they right themselves to eat it. Very clever!

Wednesday, June 9th
Burros! We never get pictures of burros. Heh. I like the light in this picture.

 Dr. M saw this landscaping truck in town. It's called Two Cows Mowing – but where's the 2nd cow?

 Thursday, June 10th
Guess what time it is? Tax Time Pig Time! This week she was dressed as a brown bear. That just seems mean since it's been so hot.

 Friday, June 11th
On Friday Dr. M took a picture of some eensy baby tomatoes on the topsy turvy tomato plant. Aren't they cute? Hopefully they'll grow into tasty cherry tomatoes!

Later in the evening I glanced at our satellite clock & saw that we had achieved equilibrium – the outside temp was the same as the inside temp. I don't know why, but this phenomenon fascinates me.

 Saturday, June 12th
This morning it was pouring rain (which did not stop me from harvesting some cilantro for our breakfast omelet – well, it wasn't pouring when I did that). I like how the flag looks in the rain – although Dr. M is very particular about the flag & was fretting a bit. He decided that since it's nylon a little rain won't hurt it. For a lefty he as definite ideas on how it should be treated! Since I may not do a special post on Monday, I'll say Happy Flag day today!

I'll leave you with some random pictures Dr. M took this afternoon in our back yard.

Go here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants.


  1. I figure the ol' flag is tough enough to weather some storms, and to shelter almost infinite diversity, for that matter. After all, where else in the world would the "radicals" get to teach the nation's history? :-) Oh, and sweetie? I think that bear is a beaver...

  2. I love the two cows mowing. Shouldn't it be mooing?

  3. Great pics this week and you will do fabulous tomorrow. I was all excited by my baby tomatoes. Now I have a gallon of ripe cherry tomatoes and put up many many regular size tomatoes today. Not so excited now.

  4. I always love your animal pics. Break a leg tomorrow, you'll do great!

  5. Dear The Bug,
    You're going to do Great. Best wishes, encouragement, and then Hurrah, congratulations! to you.

    Ann T.

  6. I always enjoy your Project 365 photos AND commentary! Always good for a giggle or eleven :D

    Poor pig is right! Someone needs to turn those folks into PETA for mistreatment of animals. I don't really get the significance of the bear costume either.

    Have a great week!

  7. Your hair looks really long in that picture. Are you growing it out?
    Maybe the mowing cow and the tax pig should get together! The "bear" has some awful buck teeth!!
    All the flowers and gardening are looking wonderful...keep up the good work!
    Have a great week!

  8. a BEAR market, i guess ??
    great pics of the animals

  9. So, how did your solo go? What did you sing? Good for you!

    I love the deer with the fawn and I'm a big fan of burros.


  10. Such a lovely doe and fawn picture... and I too like the lighting on the burros picture

  11. I love the picture of the deer!

    and yes, I think it is not nice that the pig is dressed in a bear suit....I'm sure it is HOT under there!!!

    your flowers are beautiful!

  12. Beautiful pictures! That cow picture reminded me of your pig pictures and low and behold I scroll down and I see Mr Pig dressed as Brown Bear which then made me think, and say aloud, the name of one of my fav children's books...Brown Bear Brown Bear What do You See?? I see a camera looking at me! And really like the dress you are wearing in the first picture! Hope you have a great week!

  13. Eeeee! Look at those 'maters! How exciting, I'm sooo jealous!

  14. Love the deer! They're so quiet and peaceful to watch. Especially fawns! Awww...which brings me to the burros. Aren't they the cutest?! I don't believe I've ever seen one in real life.

    Happy tomato growing!!


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!

2023 Project 365 – Week Thirty-eight

I think it might be undeniably fall now. I mean, meteorologically and calendarically (yes, I know that’s not a word). Also, it’s been cooler...
