After I labored for 8.5 hours at my paying job today, I came home and relaxed while sipping a cold beverage on the deck. Within minutes I got a good shot of the hummingbird that visits my buddelia bush every day.
Since there is no red on the neck, the hummingbird is a she. I really wish the male would come around as I have never snapped a clear pic of a male hummer. They are rarer than me being off on Labor Day. :)
Isn't this the sweetest little teapot?
I moved a pot of Fireking Croscosmia to one of my whiskey barrels. I like it with the lighter orange Tropicanna blooms.
The flowers are very tiny. Here is a closeup:
I am hoping I can save them over the winter and get a better display next year.
We are having our second dinner of the farmer's market summer squash tonight. My favorite way to cook the young squash is like this:
salt, pepper, browned in a bit of butter. YUM!
