The Monarchs have been traveling through to and the odd few stop by to have a nibble . The field beside us will soon be blooming with Goldenrod and wild Asters and then all kinds of pollinators will be fluttering and buzzing about it . I cant wait SmileAUGUST 2018 (1 of 1)-31AUGUST 2018 (1 of 1)-32

I cant believe how fast the days and moths have been going or have gone  the summer is just flying by , we haven't had lots of rain this summer either has been quite dry for us as usual the rain clouds seem to horse shoe around us  but I have managed to keep our gardens happy and blooming regardless .  Talking about the summer going by so fast why I have noticed some trees leaves already beginning to change .
