Butterfly Bush and Gulls

No, there is no connection between the two - except that both gave me moments of pleasure today.

My butterfly bush is blooming at last, and so I was pleasantly surprised when I went out this morning. I love the way that bush and the orange day lilies compliment one another. And, of course my first sunflower is also in bloom next to them, which adds another cheerful note.

Most days, if the temperature gets up around 80, I just stay at home. I went out this morning because I had to drop off prescriptions. Now that I'm home, I am definitely feeling the aftermath of the heat and humidity. But, on the way home I passed a farm field where there were dozens of gulls circling and diving. I had to stop and enjoy the sight. Click to enlarge.

Now I'm sorry I didn't think to use the video feature on my camera.

I need to learn how to use that feature, too. But I still enjoyed your shots, and words. We are having a reprieve from the heat and humidity, hope you do soon, too!!

Marvelous shots, Bobbie, along with words -- as always! We're enjoying delightful weather at least for a while, blue skies, cool breeze and warm sun! Wish I could send you some!

I love the photos even if you didn't us the video feature. ;-)
