What’s Blooming!

Posted Aug 23 2013 7:23pm

Another Friday rolls around. My life feels like work, work, work, bike, bagels, work, work, bike, cupcake, work, work. :D 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. :roll:

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.

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.
