My son, Paul has returned from his travels, and its good to have him home again. He'll be teaching high school science for the next semester, so we're already thinking of fall and back to school.
The weather here is just right for late summer, sunny and the temperature between 24 and 27 C.
I'm on vacation and have been walking lots, today I noticed the butterflies we have in abundance, seeming to be possibly white and yellow cabbage moths, and as well a few different butterflies. I think I may have seen one monarch butterfly.
The gardens in my neighbourhood are lovely with hollyhocks, sunflowers, lilies of all colours, larkspur, roses, and the annuals such as petunias, marigolds, zinnia - it is such a treat to walk.
Presently I'm using Paul's computer, so not able to post photos yet, but should be able to soon, I hope. I've been watching a pair of mourning doves, and their two babies - and have tried to take some photos of these. The fledglings are fun to watch, they seem a bit hesitant about going out into the world.
I've just had a nice hour or so reading up on some blogs, and will hopefully catch up more tomorrow.
I hope you may be enjoying the pleasures of summer where you are.
