A Little Sprinkling

ORIGINAL, UNIQUE WEARABLE ART

Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

The Birds and the Bees

Seems like more than three days since I've posted. Just had to show some garden pictures. Today the weather calls for severe thunderstorms possible off and on all day and into the night. We have weather watches in our immediate area and sunshine in between. I took these photos in the midst of a "sunny" spell. Feels like a "steam oven" right now!
Out back: astillbe, bee balm, ivy geraniums, impatiens, butterfly bush.

Here's one of my little guys with our cat, Mickey, under the deck bench. He was trying to pet Mickey.  Mickey has allergies and we forgot to get his injection, so his nose is all spotty. Poor guy. So negligent are we.

Now, maybe you can tell me if this is a carpenter bee. We have had them drilling holes in our pergola, but my sister, who identified them, hasn't told me what they look like. She saw a special on carpenter bees.

Have a super wonderful day!!!

Hmmm. You think you know what bees are until someone asks you something. I'm sorry I don't know if it is or not. I know honeybees and bumblebees and little bumble bees, maybe mason bees but this is a new one.

Love your garden, it's gorgeous. Your butterfly bush is scrumptious. I'm trying to get a couple started but they're just stumbling along. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Diane

Thanks, Diane. You're very welcome, too! I've missed a few postings from blogs on my list and thought I'd sneak in "catch up" time. I enjoy your blog very much!

Your garden is so inviting and dreamy! And that bee thing looks like those bugs that make holes in trees here in NY. Could it be this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asian_long-horned_beetle ?

Dora, I checked out the "carpenter bee" and found that this is what is in my yard. They have drilled perfect holes in my pergola, and my husband has filled them with wood putty. They keep breaking through. I'm sure we'll arrest them in time. They're pretty harmless to humans; however, I wish I could say the same for the wood!
