A Second Look--July 27, 2016

We continue to have hot and humid weather here with no rain. Even the promise of a thunderstorm has not materialized. And I'm getting tired of it. I generally try to be positive here, so I'm positive I am tired of the heat for many reasons, not the least of which I've had a migraine for about a week now. The heat is either causing my malady or most certainly aggravating it.

Okay, I think I'm done complaining.
Here are few things I saw this week 
during a Second Look.

While many of the day lily are turning brown, there are a few still blooming.

The house finches continue to dominate the feeders.

But other birds do show up like this mourning dove.

The blanket flowers bloomed for the first time this week. These are volunteers from last year.

I think these are the same kind of mushrooms that grew quite large a couple of weeks ago. I'm going to watch them carefully to see what they do.


These are four different groundhog holes in the back of the yard. They all have been enlarged recently.


The tiger lilies are in full bloom now.
