The next photo is flowers in "casualty vases" on my kitchen windowsill. I have one or more casualty vases all summer just for the things that somehow get broken off. They turn into the prettiest arrangements.
Pictured below is a European Wool-Carder bee. I spotted him/her in the garden and found it a curiosity I've never noticed before. Easy enough to Google and learn it's relatively new to our area.
Finally, summer can't go by without a picture of a swallowtail. Look how raggedy the poor thing's wings are. Life can be rough.
We're heading out for a few more days of camping. I appreciate the chance to escape this relentless wind and the neverending housework. Wishing you a happy week!
