I love it when I get a second season out of a plant...
my mums are blooming again....

these morning glories are coming up right in the middle of  a scrap pile...




my cactus are putting on babies....
I hope next year they will bloom...

when little britches and I were on our walk...
we ran into this mockingbird....

we found this floating in the dogs water bowl...
looks like someone else was visiting....

we've had some really nice weather the last couple of days...
been soaking up the sunshine....enjoying the cool mornings...
with all the craziness going on in the world...
it's nice to enjoy lifes simple pleasures...
stop and smell the roses...or mint...or daisies...or what ever...

Your mums look so healthy and have such deep rich colors on both blooms and the leaves.

Prickly pear cacti is looking good. Mine is growing too.

I always love your random shots. Cacti are such a strange yet beautiful species. Your little ballet dancer is adorable too!
