I am thankful for pen and paper.
Out of all of the ways we have to record things today, for me nothing beats a good, old fashioned pen and paper.
|Some of the things we've enjoyed eating recently.|
|Dogwood tree. Notice the buds for next spring's blooms next to the berries from this year's blooms.|
|A few of the Lily of the Valley berries have been snatched.|
|Skipper butterfly on sedum. If you look closely, you can see it had its proboscis out in the first picture. In the second picture, you can't see it.|
|Faithful flowers that have been blooming all summer and are still hanging on.|
|Saddleback Caterpillar. It turns out that this colorful caterpillar has venomous barbs. Not only will they sting you skin, they can also make you sick. I'm glad I was wearing gloves when I found him.|
|Female hummingbird. Male hummingbirds leave a few weeks before the females. I don't know if all of the males are gone, but I've only seen females at the feeder.|
