My favorite flowering tree is the Texas Redbud (Cercis canadensis var. texensis).  Their blooms are fleeting but gorgeous, some of the first of the year.  This bee likes them, too.


July 4th’s Eve raftup.

Yes, another zinnie shot.

I’m off of work for the rest of the week (YAY!).  We headed to the lake today for a raftup with friends in Arky south.  We’ve got the coolers packed, and the kayak on the trailer, and we’re off!

This is a shot of one of the zinnias out back.  They’re so pretty!

In spite of the drought.

Pretty and pink.

It’s still hot and dry.

I spent time yesterday watering the trees out front.  This evening after work I put some water on my nearly lost flower bed and the lawn out back.

I was surprised to see that one of my potted plants was hanging in there.  Little pink blossoms thriving in spite of the heat and the drought.

Me too.
