August isn't over with and neither are the birthdays. Today is Frank's sister's birthday.

Happy Birthday Nette! Love You!

The other day when I was taking pictures for the Friday Shoot Out (see previous day's post) I took a few more pictures that didn't turn out too badly.

Mama gave me part of her Angel Trumpet plant a few years back. It doesn't grow in our yard as well as it does in her yard. It has had a lot of blossoms this year though. It is most fragrant in the early morning and in the late evening.

This little bee was on the Speedwell (Veronica spicata) blossom. I think it is a honey bee, but I have called some critters bees before and they turn out to be a bee imitator, so I will stick with little bee. :-)

I awakened this morning just before five to the patter of rain upon the roof. It has to be raining pretty hard for me to hear the rain over the window air conditioner. Soon the rain was pouring and it poured for a least an hour with the sound of thunder and flashes of lightning. We need the rain, but it would be nice for it not to all come down at once. More rain is expected later today.

So it will be a day of piddling in the house. Perhaps I will catch up on that pile of paperwork that is on my table. Perhaps I will read the book that I bought months ago or do both.... decisions... decisions :-)



  1. Good Morning Zaroga! Those are great pictures of the bee on the flower!!! Happy birthday to Nette!
    Send the rain on over here and I will curl up with a book. Happy day!

  2. Georgia's rain is making it a great day to read. Love your pictures this morning. The yellow angel's trumpet was mama's favorite. Enjoy your day.

  3. Wow, birthdays galore at your house! Your photos are just beautiful especially that Angel Trumpet...the color is so vibrant!

    Hope you two have a wonderful and restful weekend. not ready for rain yet..but almost there. LOL!


  4. Perhaps is a big word, isn't it? We still have chances, but not hardly a sprinkle so far. I would love a couple of cool, overcast, gentle, steady raining days. Love your blooms and your bees. I don't have these two and love seeing them. Happy Birthday to your sis-in-law!!
