For Coach’s birthday the girls gifted him with a flagpole; he’s wanted one for the yard for a long time.
(The black/blue flag stands for Law Enforcement support)
The clanking of the flags/straps/clips in the wind reminds me of being back in public school. I loathed school, but I find the sound of the flag clanging comforting. If I ever get to therapy, I’m sure theres a reason for this.
(I have no idea why two videos show up. When I try to edit it only shows one)
My new-ish butterfly garden is coming in really well. But now I’m now wondering if I’ve put in too many plants? I need to do some trimming. FYI: It’s a huge butterfly attractor for sure….but what I’m most surprised by is the amount of bee’s that are always present.
I’m talking nearly eleventy thousand bees.daily. Yes, I counted them and I’m exhausted.
I’m still busy making monarchs.
Ok, I’m not ACTUALLY making them, I’m assisting them to have life. I’m a life assistant.
This week I’ve had 5 emerge….all females. If some boys don’t start showing up we’re gonna be in trouble; the girls need the boys to make babies. Well, at least thats how it works in nature.
But….a few weeks ago I did catch these two in the act of love.
Butterfly porn….yep, it happens in my yard.
*I took the dogs out to potty after dinner one night and Cocoa decided to forgo the potty action and have a little siesta by the pool; Harley joined in a minute later. These two old (11 & 17) critters are best buds.
*It’s been windy and kinda overcast all week and I LOVE IT. Really, we get too much sunshine around here…..I like a bit of a change.
Yeah, I just said that.
Also, the humidity is taking a bit of a break and the air has dried up a tad. Honest to goodness my skin felt it within 12 minutes. Death.Valley.Skin.for.SUZ.
If you need me, I’ll be in the bathroom applying moisturizer.
Have a great weekend my friends!
