Yesterday started out in sun and ended in storms — again!
The morning glory is growing like crazy, yet has not one bloom on it. In former years and by now, it would be loaded with flowers. It must have something to do with this crazy summer. I also read that it could be too much nitrogen in the soil, though I can't imagine how the soil has a nutrient left in it after all this rain.
The drift roses are another story. They bloom and bloom and bloom. There are even three bouquets of them in the house.
The dragonfly's iridescent wings intrigued me. I don't think I've ever looked at things the same way since I started taking pictures.
After church, John and I needed coffee in the worst way so had to take a trip to Tim Horton's to pick up our monthly supply. While there, we had soup and a sandwich and then went on a slow drive to the lake. (Note this month's photo challenge in my sidebar.)
~too pedestrian...I won't be using it~
I also took a lot of those drive-by shots that I love to do, but that don't come out so great. I'll be showing them sometime this week. Here's a teaser.
So typical of a New England farmhouse — the attached shed between the house and the barn. It is a practical way to avoid being out in a blizzard when heading for the barn or the privy.
What I like about drive-by photos is that one always finds a surprise later. I wasn't paying much attention to the porch and the colorful chairs, even a child-sized one. They were a bonus! I'd love to sit there on the swing and watch the world go by.
Tomorrow, I'll be sharing my part in the tea cup exchange, plus perhaps toss in a few more drive-bys.
A happy Monday to you...
