“What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance” Jane Austen

Yeah, I know Jane, I'm sweating like a pig. too. In spite of a few minor set backs (my camera lens kept fogging up, I thought I was going to freakin pass out) swoon) I managed to find some dog day beauty in our own yard.

Double rainbow in our front yard:

Milkweed & Monarch in our butterfly garden:

Showing off her pretty profile:

(I l-o-v-e Chenille)

Bleeding Heart:
(Jane would have approved)

Some kind of yellow spikey thingy that is growing everywhere in my garden:

The Pod:
( a tribute to one of my favorite movies, The Invasion of the Body Snatchers.)

The Pod becomes this flower...

Or does it...

That monarch is one good looking butterfly! And the bleeding heart is just beautiful.

Beautiful SPP! Love the rainbow the best. :)


Dani: TY! We are really the rainbow girls aren't we?
