Life on the Cypress Swamp has been pretty uneventful. I don’t know if it’s a summer slump or just the “dog days of summer” setting in, but things around here are pretty lazy right now. I haven’t taken many pictures lately so, I thought I would just show a bit of what I see around here each day.
Here is our friend, Mr. Hawk, on his regular perch. For some reason he has taken a liking to the bluebird box and spends a good part of his day here. Of course, there isn’t a bluebird in his right mind who would attempt to reclaim this home!
Mexican Petunia loves this hot, humid weather and is blooming like crazy. The hotter it is, the better this little one likes it. I love the lavender color with the really deep green leaves.
Hummingbirds are feeding regularly now. I wasn’t fast enough to actually get a picture of one, but watching them is one of my favorite past times.
In my kitchen window is pink verbena to enjoy as I do daily chores. Thanks to the unusually wet summer, it is blooming like crazy. The little sunflower “vases” are actually diffuser bottles we found at a local glass outlet for .33 cents a piece. I just couldn’t pass up a bargain like that!
That’s just a glimpse of my day. I am kind of enjoying a slower pace for a while. I’m sure it won’t last long! Maybe I will have a more interesting post next time…………
