Well the temps have heated up and it is very humid hot , sticky and YUK ! out there . That’s normal for us here in Ontario Canada to be fooled by fall like temps then WHAM ! humid and hot returns . Oh well . I still enjoy getting out in the mornings when it is cooler .
It was as foggy as heck this morning due to the humidity and I saw this wonderful view of the sun trying it’s best to burn through the cloud and fog over the valley so of course I had to photograph it lol !
It was amazing to see the actual sun with out hurting my eyes as it was mostly covered by the fog .
Then I spotted these sticking out from the hedges . Kind of looks like Christmas decor berries lol !
Oh wild Asters and Golden rod I love both as they sway in the warm breeze !
For those who don't like spiders brace your self for this photo can pass by it if you would prefer
I understand .
They may look scary to some and may be feared but as a photographer and nature nut I find them fascinating . yes I will admit not to fascinating if in doors but outside a definite yes ! See all the meals he has in his web ? !
Praying Mantis are also a fascinating creature of nature ! They can be green like this one or brown and they blend in well with either branches , leaves or grasses good way of camouflaging for picking off their prey !.
Papa’s grasses by his work shop are doing well this year . I love their feathery look as they blow in the breeze !
I am pleased to see the many Monarchs stopping by for a feast on our butterfly bush in our new this year butterfly garden . As I see them come to the yard I tell them to make a pit stop over that garden and thanks fully it seems to work as they end up there in the end lol !
The bees seem to be very happy with our gardens as well !
Miggs is taking a break in the shade on our side patio as she watches the squirrels over at the big tree !
I didn’t get any photos of the moon last night as I was on the phone with one of our boys who are all doing good . But did you know that last nights moon was the supermoon, also known as the Sturgeon Moon. It is the first of three consecutive “supermoons” occurring this year. The full moon for August is called by the Natives a Sturgeon Moon because of the large number of fish that can be easily found in the lakes in North America. Other names for this full moon include Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon.
Next full moon for us here in Canada is September 27th –28th called the Harvest Moon .
Well that’s it for me , staying cool inside for the afternoon and have lots of photos to go through and get done arranging them lol !
