June in Pictures

I’ve been gone two months and come back with a chintzy photo post. Yeah, life’s like that sometimes.

We’re pretty much moved in, have net, have had the computer virus cleaned up and the laptop fixed, so now it’s just a matter of catching up and seeing to details.

Wasn’t that fun? I have some fourth of July pics to share and then I need to take the rest off of the camera – including the biggest toadstool I have ever seen!

Have fun, all!


Photos: More Flowers


These are from My Aunt Carol’s yard ūüėČ


I should have asked what these were

I think three more photo blogs should catch me up.

You can cheer.

Photos: Too Smeggin’ Hot


It’s cooled off now, but earlier this month it was over 100 for several weeks straight. It friend our poor yard!

the grass is all burnt up

That’s supposed to be grass

worse was all the bugs! With no moisture they’ve run rampant this year. The cicadas are so loud that it’s deafening, and at night the bugs in the trees sound like rain on the leaves.



eaten detail

Poor leaf

there are dead leaves everywhere!

too smeggin’ hot!

This is why I dislike summer. Thanks goodness it is now on the way out!

All for now. More later. Lucky you!

New Photos: Thunderstorm


I should update my website instead of scheduling blog posts. Alas, I love blogging too much! I read an article¬†recently¬†about eliminating time drainers that do not “forward your goals” – aka the book covers or the books, I guess – and according to it things like this blog should be eliminated to save time. They’re probably right; I could do useful stuff¬†instead¬†of post here. But I get the enjoyment from it, so that’s worth it to me. It can’t be all work 24/7!

Anyway, there was an awesome storm that produced some pretty good photos. It took awhile to get the focus and such right, so I didn’t get as many as I would have liked, but no need to be greedy.

Pink & Purple


Makes me think of My Little Pony. I don’t know why. I bet a psychiatrist would have fun with my weird associations.

And no, I did not adjust the color/levels/curves/etc on these. They came out purple like that and I left it because it was an awesome shade.

New Photos: Clouds, Flowers & Paper Plates


And it’s ANOTHER new blog. Holy crap, the world may be ending. Oh wait, that was last month. Well, so much for that. In that case I guess you’ll have to suffer through some more photos! Sorry. Okay, not really.¬† Gwahahahahahahaha!

mysterious paper plates in our parkinglot that make a big W

got up one day to find paper plates laid out in front of our building in the shape of a W…. What could it mean? *gasp*


looks like an ordinary discarded pape rplat

it seems normal enough, but we all know it is a sinister message… avoid W’s! (hee-hee)

There should be another one pretty soon about our trip through the creek.

New Photos – Ducky Pond Take 2


I know. Three new blogs in a row. Time for a heart attack.

Another trip to the ducky pond, as I affectionately call Dunnigan Park.¬† Yes, I think everything needs nicknamed. However, I am not into really original nicknames, so it’s pretty much what they sound like.

dramatically lit swans


goose peeling bark

he’s peeling the bark off that poor tree!



I love my new camera


fluffy rock

this made me think of some kind of creature from Dark Crystal…

hummingbird flowers?


it looks like a foot

daisies 5



tiny flowers

not sure if the image is too purple or if the flowers had a tint to them… probably the first one.


you can see their feet

and since I call it the ducky pond – here’s some duckies!



okay, not at the ducky pond. This is the tree across the street on a foggy night….

And that’s all I have for now. Alas, I must take the dog out and head to bed. Fun, fun.
