Old Sol glares down into the landscape and the thick air seems to cling to my face as I wander through the property. The huge hydrangea nearly froze to death a few years ago and struggled to bounce back but this year it proved that it doesn’t give up so easily. This is most bloom I’ve seen on it since we moved here in 2012. It’s sweet scent fills my home every time a door is opened. And every day I see different pollinators enjoy it’s gifts. The last few years my yard was full of butterflies and there’s still a few around but the faithful little skippers win out in numbers this year. Simple and deceptively delicate in a appearance they are always a joy to see. They have their favorite perches around the yard and always seem to return to the same spot where they can overlook their domain. They’re very territorial and will even challenge the hummingbirds on occasion. Not that birds even appear to notice when the little warriors manage to catch up with them. The skippers just bump into them and return to their posts as if they won the battle. And who could blame them for defending their sweet treasures of blue and purple?
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.
We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.
