 My Zinnias are beautiful this year...
I love Zinnias...

 we had an odd Summer here in Texas...
we had a lot of cool days...
which is very unusual...
but of course we had our 100 degree days too...

 the butterflies came late...
but they have been beautiful....
I have had tons of them...
bees...grasshoppers...locusts too...
lizards have been in abundance too...
which has made String bean very happy...
I just realized I haven't seen one frog or toad though...

it has also been a very dry summer...
we are still well below what we need...
Fall Started...with some cooler temps...
but they say next week back up to the 90's...
One of our neighbors passed away on Saturday...
he mowed his front and back yard...
drove himself to the hospital...
collapsed...and never recovered...
a massive heart attack...
he was 60 years old...
you just don't know...
If someone is on your mind...
you should call them...go see them...
there is usually a reason....
