The last few days it has gotten SO HOT here! I thought it was warm before, but we have had heat indexes at over 105 degrees. So, I haven't been doing too much in the garden. The afternoon showers have stopped, so the weeds have slowed down which is nice, but I am having to water some things. While watering the veggies, I spotted this yellow finch (i think its a finch, i don't know much about birds)
Its not the best picture but it was all i had the chance to get before he flew off:
Its so cool to see creatures enjoying the garden!
I also managed to get a shot of this guy:
Happily, the garden is doing a lot of taking care of itself. We are still working on the creek project...we got some done on sunday:
My plan was to drag all the brush to the curb this afternoon for pick up tomorrow...but its just too hot! Plus, leaving it there to dry out will make it less heavy next week :)
I am also excited because my strawberry plants are finally starting to look like something! So, I might get some berries next year....
I also got some great shots of Daturas untwirling:
And, very cool shot of opening elephant ear leaf
I guess about all I can stand to do in this heat is have fun with the camera :)
