Anole watching me water this morning (and he didn't disappear when I dashed inside to get the camera)

Butterfly bushes work!

Friday afternoon cocktails

Why wait for 5 o'clock? It's five somewhere, right? I'm sitting on my covered porch. Listening to cicadas. Watching them fly through the yard and land...at my feet or in the patio furniture. They have a 17 year life cycle. It hit me: in all likelihood I will not be alive when they return in 2041. I'm 73.

So, I'm having that cocktail at 4 pm, instead of 5.

Camouflage

Sitting on my covered porch just now and saw the Yarrow move. I've had a rabbit and went to see if it was lurking. Nope. Just a green anole.
