Yes, Mr. Maximus finally left the house. I feel much better now. I spent most of the week-end down at the other house helping the Hubby do some more painting and I also worked out in the yard there too. My Coneflowers are so lovely right now. And below is a pic of one of my tiger Lily's. I Love the fiery color of those hardy Lily's.
Next is close up of one of my Cosmos. These are amazing flowers. They re-seed and come back thicker every year. By the end of August they are awesome too see. They get up over 6 ft tall and just so thick and full. I have a patch right by the road at the other house and several times people driving by would stop in the middle of the road when I was outside and ask me what they were and how they could get some of them. I generously gave seeds out as I do Love to share the beauty.
Another patch of the Coneflowers.
I was wanting to play with my camera and try some new shots. This is a silhouette shot of the cones. Love the blue sky behind them, just wish the wires weren't in the picture too.
OH,,,Look,,,its the little Brat Terrier, Lady, and she is trying to smell the Cones, she didn't know that they don't have a fragrance, they are just there for the pleasure of looking at them.
We grilled out Saturday night and right after we got the steaks cooked it started to storm. We got some nice rain all night and part of the day on Sunday. I woke up to some wet streets and every thing just looked so green and happy.
I hope every one had a wonderful week-end!!!
