Guess.............what is this?

Always amazing to see a rainbow.  I watched this one for several miles, seeing partial sections of the rainbow, until we were parked and could then see as the whole rainbow appeared, with some double pieces, too!

(Yes, that is my new car in the photo...a Honda FIT)

Look what surprised me today......

A bud had to have been hiding under the leaves.....today there was a nice coral Hybiscus on the porch.  No other visible buds for now.

Nice in many ways . . .

Another view of that sunset -

I photographed the same sunset as psychnerd, 25 miles or so to the west!!
This looks like it was just a little later.  I was driving and had to get to a safe, higher elevation.

I just love this variety of Lobelia, with the white centers.  It has to be my favorite accent flower, especially with impatiens, lantana, and geraniums.  Count on me for more photos of flowers.  Sharing the beauty!

The 1st morning glory blossom of this summer . . .our cool temps. w/o much rain are producing skimpy vines, with few flowers.  Last year's vines would collapse under the weight!  Maybe it will finally get hot around here.

Still, I love my morning glories.  I have many vines throughout the yard, so I am awaiting many blossoms!

Hummingbird at my Bee Balm - they love it!

(Hummers are a challenge to photograph.................fun!  I liked your hum. photo, sparklesalad!)

Cat, meet dog.

Apparently, this was after they had a fight and the cat bit the dog in the head and he acted all pissy.
And yes, my cat has laser beam eyeballs :)

Visiting wineries is a fun combination of driving and viewing wonderful scenery . . . and then enjoying a bit of wino!

We had a nice sunny, 80s day on the 4th of July!
