Another Friday rolls around. My life feels like work, work, work, bike, bagels, work, work, bike, cupcake, work, work. Time goes by so fast!
Actually, we did attend a free concert last night during the Lake George Music Festival.
Shostakovitch cello concerto, which was pretty amazing, and Beethoven 5. This was a great group of musicians, too. It was supposed to be an outdoor concert, but rained pushed it inside. Of course, the free concert ended up costing $15 because we got a parking ticket because our meter was broken. Gotta love.
Anyhoo, another new butterfly this week! This is a black swallowtail. Swallowtails are always so hard to get pictures of. Other types of butterflies sit still – swallowtails flutter. all.the.time.
The best shots I could get were from the underside!
There was also Mr. Grasshopper on the butterfly bush. Not sure quite what he was doing there.
Funky focus on that shot. Wonder how I did that?
I moved one of my bird feeders because the birdies were making a mess on the porch. Now they make a mess on the ground and sunflowers are growing! Casual gardener that I am, I just let them pop up wherever.
A nice bit of cheeriness to pass by on the path:
I also was so excited to see my newest coneflower sending up a bloom! I bought a Tiki Torch. It’s a baby and I really was expecting it to need another year to bloom, but it sent up one stalk.
SQUEEEE!!!!!!!!!!! I love the color
My back stoop geraniums:
And the dahlias:
We have another gorgeous weekend coming up. Yay! It just can’t get more perfect. I am thinking a cupcake will be in there somewhere.
