Making you look at more photos and more good news
These are a few of the ones I made today. I had stepped out into the backyard and noticed how the garlic chives were in full bloom. The bumblebees and a few wasps were enjoying a feeding frenzy so I ran back into the house for the camera. Also one tiny butterfly or moth, I'm not sure which. And for Kim's benefit from Kim's Treasures, who hates spiders, a closeup of the spider which is living on the door from my bedroom to our back deck. I'm leaving it alone because I hope it is catching lots of flies or mosquitoes and we don't go out on that deck much in the summertime anyway. It's on the south side of the house and just entirely too hot until it cools off. The other is one experimental shot trying to capture the light from the sun as it would break through the leaves of one of the black walnut trees. You can see some of the damage from Japanese beetles if you look closely at the leaves.
For my good news, I entered the giveaway mentioned a couple of posts back at the blog, A Charmed Life. I can hardly believe it but I won a prize. I didn't win the CarryAll, but Cate decided to have a second prize of goodies since she had so many entries and I won that! I have truly been blessed lately! I'm pinching myself!
