Almost Missed August

Where have all the butterflies gone? In years past, there would be a variety of them visiting our yard. This year? Just Fiery Skippers and not that many. I’m hoping they’re just late but it probably portends something worse.

I made a brief sojourn to Fountain Hills…this viewpoint used to have quite a lovely view but now houses, cars, and golfers have been added…this is a 4 shot panorama.

Kitties! The indoor crew: Ferguson, Torti, Bouche.

I was playing with my crystal ball one day and not getting the effects I wanted so Ferguson decided to help out by defying gravity. Much better!

The cats are not using heir kitty cat clubhouse as much as I had hoped but every now and then:

It’s been a decent monsoon season so far so things are pretty green but it’s very muggy as well as hot. That’s Phoenix in the summertime.

See you in September!

  1. Butterflies have been quite scarce this summer in Atlanta, too. I miss them. Love all of your photos, thank you for sharing.

    1. Thank you, Teresa. I’m still waiting. Lately I’ve seen a couple fly by but, right now, we have nothing in bloom so they keep going!!!!! I’m hoping the lantana will be blooming again very soon.
