Close To Home
This weekend we finally got to have a campfire out back. We were so happy about the Friday night campfire, we had another one Saturday night. You see, we've been waiting and waiting after a very dry Winter and a pretty darn dry Spring (as far as Spring goes). Then when it seemed the rain gods had showered on us and we'd be set to have a campfire, the winds came in and stopped that idea in its tracks. It's been a long time coming, especially for Gar and I, who like nothing better than to sit out back around the campfire.
Saturday night as we enjoyed the campfire on a beautiful night, the SuperMoon was rising. The shots I was able to get don't capture the huge size of the Moon, but it sure had a pretty glow to it peeking through the pines and oak.
Sunday we were blessed with another day with sunshine. There were butterflies all over the place. They were going crazy over the lilacs. Really crazy. Garrett, neighborhoodlum Gerry and I decided that there may have been a little intoxication happening from the lilac-fest because after they finished their share of lilac nectar, they kept running into the house. It was quite a site.
You may think this photograph is upside down, but it was in fact the butterfly that was upside down. And yes, it is a butterfly, not a moth.
Hopefully they've recovered from the lilac nectar.
Sunday evening brought a lovely sunset and end to the weekend. The sunset I love, the end of another weekend not-so-much.
The good news is, it's Tuesday already................hope yours is going wonderfully in your corner of the world. I'm here at my desk, checking things off the list and that always makes for a good day.
Ciao for now,
