Sunday Summer Stroll


Today is a warm, Sunday afternoon.
Time for a summer stroll!

These flowers match  my dress!
 I was resting on the base of the tree trunk,
when I saw the daffodils!


















 I almost had a chance to make a wish, 
but then a gentle breeze overtook me!













I think it is time to go in.

Hittygirls Firefly Regatta and Picnic

One day on the Hittygirls Yahoo group, some mysterious and somewhat anonymous poster left a message from Lemonade,  Baloney and Crow. Members were perplexed,  and called the messages "clues" as they tried to guess what would come next!
Finally it was revealed! They would host a summer event!
They called it the Hittygirls Firefly Regatta and Picnic.



 Photo Challenge #2 is for Hitty to have a picnic on an island.
Brilliant! We have an island!
Small pirate skeletons live on it, but hey...
Jose and Jack are on vacation,
so Hitty Jubilee set up her picnic.
I wonder if she will get extra points for the crow?


Photo Challenge #1 is for Hitty to participate in the regatta
in some kind of floating craft, decorated for the regatta.
We have a sailboat!
A special sail and banner were crafted,
and off she went to the regatta!

Summer Flowers at the Botanic Garden


Today, I decided it was time for another adventure.
It was time for a summer trip to the Botanic Garden!



I was drawn the fountain, but had to promise not to take a dip in the cool water.





              There were lots of nice places to meander and explore!













We found  a new exhibit!
The Dragonfly Sanctuary Pond was active with dragonflies, tadpoles, and even a shy muskrat!







Then...we were on to the Butterfly Pavilion
Umm...my ribbon came undone.
I'm not going to spend the next 20 minutes trying to re-tie it.
Then just take them both out. I want to play!



Rose Garden


These aren't roses...




Heritage  Farm
A working agricultural exhibit representing farm life 
in the Rio Grande Valley in the 1930's-1940's.



Happy Summer Day!
(Where are the cows? I want to see the cows!)
