I wish that wouldn't have happened, maybe there's some way I can help to prevent it in the future...I don't know.
On one of the last trips back to the house I noticed this lone clump of asters out in the east prairie. It's amazing how the stuff is spreading after Jessica and I planted the wild seeds we gathered.
When I got close to the plant I noticed all the bees on it. Each one had these huge clumps of pollen clinging to their back legs. I grabbed a shot of one:
As I was taking shots of the bees this painted lady came by.
Color and beauty you just can't describe or capture.
5 weeks till our trip to the island. We've now ordered 2 different sets of fins for snorkeling and neither set has fit, nor has either set been sent back. We also got new dive socks, dive masks and goggles ( yes the dining room is beginning to look like a dive shop or something.) I placed another order last night for fin set number 3, hopefully this one will work. We are both soooooo...ready to be back.
