Saturday Musings

I picked two banana peppers from my porch garden today. These will come in real handy for fixing supper in a bit. I made tomato sauce today and added peppers, onions, basil, and oregano. It's in the freezer now and sure will be delicious this winter.
 This little guy is about 3 inches long and is so closely color-matched to the ground that he was nearly invisible. He's a great illustration of God's gift of camo to keep him safe. If only we humans could be camouflaged sometimes to keep safe from the barbs which come at us as we walk this earth.

This little fellow was just one of many on one of our butterfly bushes.  They flit around with seemingly one goal in mind and that is to fill up on bloom nectar.  They adore this plant and I couldn't be happier having several so we can watch all the butterflies continually enjoying the blooms.
Here's one of our enormous sunflowers which are in the process of  drying its seeds.  The cardinals who visit our yard adore these and check the drying process every day in their anticipation of some scrumptious eating in a few weeks.  Now, if we can save a head before the birds realize the seeds are ready, we might even be able to have several seeds to plant next year.  I wonder who will win?
