I would gladly give you some of our rain if I could. Funny, I was walking around outside today and noticed bees on my autumn joy sedum as well. -Jenn
The leaves are turning, but mostly they are just dropping because of how dry it's been all summer. We did get some soft rain on Saturday that lasted an hour or so, but other than that, none for months. Those are some great shots of bees and butterflies!
Hi! I haven't been around blogland for a while and forgot how much I love your blog. I especially loved the post about your nieces visiting. What an awesome aunt you are! That was very inspiring and I intend to be a better aunt to my nieces and nephew!
Forgot to say re: fun things to do with kiddos - painting sticks! A bouquet of painted sticks is awesome looking! Also, make a stick loom for them to weave nature into. Here is a link to a loom that was made/filled by a little boy I mentor at school... http://klatuuboradonikto.blogspot.com/2015/, he also painted a tall, forked branch, then is going to weave in between the forks. It looks really awesome, but I don't have a picture.
What fantastic photos! And yes, our leaves are beginning to change. We too could use a good shower - and not just 'cause we stink 😉
Lots of butterflies here, chased painted ladies all week. Had my Prairie Awakening program last night. released a rehabbed Red tail and a mass release of tagged Monarchs by the children. Lots of dance and chants, with stories told by elders.
Great close up shots of your sedum and the critters enjoying them! The leaves aren't changing here quite yet. But we've had TONS of rain all summer long...the most I remember in any recent summer.
You took a good shot of the bees! They look so cute.I like the colour of your sedum. In Germany we actually do get a lot of rain.
Sit on my porch and let's chat. Due to the amount of spam I am closing my comments to Anonymous users. Sorry.
