I hope you all on the east coast  are safe and recovering from the battering of Irene. We had a fairly uneventful weekend, except we did get rain yesterday. A lot of it. Some areas got a pounding, some got a trickle. Not sure what Squaw Mountain got but she sure could have used it last weekend. She’s a little smokey here and there but the worst of it is over. I hope to get up there to survey the aftermath one of these days.

On my walk through a sunflower patch yesterday evening, I had to watch out for stinging ants on their stems and leaves. And then I saw a ladybug, settling in for the night.

Onward and upward my friends, hope you are having a great start to your week!

    I love this picture, Leah. I think my son would like it, too. Ladybugs are one of his favorite insects.
    Glad you had a quiet weekend.

      I don’t know, I guess because it’s an insect it’s called ladybug. I’ve never heard of ladybird. We’ll have to look into that!

    Sunflowers and ladybugs – two of my favorites!
