~On N, are some newly constructed, elastic waisted boy shorts (with side pockets-of course!). The fabric design and garment construction is by moi (fabric printed at Spoonflower). N. loves simple, identifiable, objects on his garments. Here he is strolling the milkweed for caterpillars.
~The sun was bright the day I took these photos (never the best for photography of course), and hot, hot, hot.
~On sunny summer days, it is such a sight to see the blue sky mend with the tall green grass and trees in the skyline. Those are perfect days. Happy days. I remind myself when we are out in our car, or just playing in the lawn, to really 'see' the sky. Days go by when I don't even look purposely at the sky. So busy thinking about this or that, I seem to overlook all that vast, joyful, blueness. Look up I say, Look up.
:~Luckily, we have some milkweed on our property, so we do not have to go far for the caterpillar quest. In our garden, we try to have host plants for the butterfly eggs, as well as nectar plants for the adults.
~Oh, and nice GIANT bug bite on your arm C.C.!
~'Hot Papaya' Echinacea is one of my new plants this season, so we will see how she fairs over the winter. This plant adds great color, height (and nectar) to the garden in July. It is 'hot' indeed!
