Today, when I came home from work, my car said 106 degrees...ooh boy, just need to eat my cucumbers, don't I?
My friend gave us some tomatoes from her garden. And look at that big cucumber! This was on our cucumber vine and it was hiding behind a big leaf! When I told my Dad this, he paused a moment and then said very seriously, "You have to look them vines". Now, this might not be funny to you, but you just had to hear how he said it! Hey, I am in need of some laughter these days, how about you?
Oops...I posted this earlier today by mistake! I really wrote the above in July! So, what I wanted to tell you is that you need to PAY ATTENTION! (Yes, you do appreciate the irony, I hope.) The butterfly above is the same butterfly, it is a Gulf Fritillary. It is orange but when you look on the underside of the wing, it is breathtakingly beautiful! The pattern of the white on the orange is amazing, there is one spot where it looks like an eye. (I am sure you know that the eye spot is there so as to trick predators.) Now, you know that Richard has taken better photos of this butterfly but doggone if I can find them!
And hey, pay attention. If possible, please be better at it than I am!
