Finally Friday

Ahhhh, we have had great weather so the windows have been open. I can sit in the window and watch and listen to the birdies. Sometimes the buns and squirrels come by to entertain me as well. What is also cool is the fireflies. Just as the sun starts going down, they wake up and start flying around. It is so cool to see them flitting around.

Flower Friday

One of our many types of daylillies. This one is dark red. It is getting now so the flowers that bloom in the late summer are opening and making the garden pretty.
Happy Weekend Everyone.

I wish we had fireflies. They sound very cool! And your flowers are very pretty. We mostly just have weeds, now that we're in the rainy season. But I noticed this evening that finally I have flowers on my butterfly bush. I've been waiting months!

Great window, Derby. The flower's very pretty. Come to think of it, we don't have fireflies here, either. (But Mom used to see them in Indiana.)

Fireflies are awesome. Sometimes I like to snap at them. I haven't ever caught one, though.

Happy Friday!

We have been able to open our windows and go on the deck but sadly the heat is gonna return.....that's why mom plays the Cat Sitter DVD so when the windows are shut we will still hear the birds and see them and even mice scurring about...it makes us feel better...Have a great weekend Derby!=^Y^=Tinker & the boyz

We don't have fireflies. Mom remembers them from when she was a kid. We also don't have much of a garden. But maybe next year.

Enjoy your view.
