Back To Humid Days With This & That

 

We did have a small break from the humidity last week but now once again are back into the sweat of things . They have been saying the cooler fall weather is upon us  how accurate they are?! who knows all I know is HOLLY CRAP  August is all most over already ?! . where did the summer go ?! Kiddies here will be back to school next Tuesday  I have seen the commercials for back to school  with all the parents with smiles on their faces but less $$ in their pockets once again for all the supplies . I know some kids  like in the states are already back to school now .

I don't know if any of you in your area have noticed but here the hornets and wasps have been more of a nuisance then normal  and have been building nests in any little tiny nook n cranny and hole they can squeeze into , I have never used so much wasp spray as I have this year to try and keep them from getting in the house .

Mean while  I have been in and out in this humid weather , mostly out in the mornings and later in the evenings as it is a bit cooler , and the butterfly's and birds have been busy .

The birds have been spending lots of time at the watering holes we have about the yard and gardens for them and the butterfly's have been gathering nectar preparing for their migration journey some of the birds will soon be following  to  as the fall and yes I know WINTER yuk ! birds will be arriving .

                  The Fall fairs in the area will be this weekend and next weekend , don't know if we will go to any but I do enjoy the farm animals and all the home made goodies . Papa is home as of Wednesday for the rest of the week and till this long weekend  that is coming  as he took some vacation time so we will see  , depends on what odd jobs needs to be done here , we have been busy with the driveway  getting rid of the grass by getting it dug up then adding more gravel and packing it down as well as building it up so we don't loose it all down the street in a rain storm , things take a bit longer when you do them your self and the muscle has to work during the week as well lol   or we may just get that done and then say the heck with all the other  odd jobs and go out and about for a change,  who knows ?! lol  .

                                        I have noticed some fall flowers are blooming as well about the gardens !

Hello, lovely captures of the butterflies and the pretty flowers. I am seeing a lot of bees around my hummingbird feeders, they are a pain. Happy Tuesday, have a great day!

Nice to see the butterflies around. We've had a hummingbird in our yard all week, which we haven't seen all summer. I guess he's on his way soon. Doesn't feel like fall at all here ... hot & humid. A nice way to end summer. Enjoy your long weekend whatever plans evolve.
