I've spent my day taking care of a list of chores (I did have my camera at this point), the kind of stuff that isn't really fun but it must be done. Most of my tasks were outdoors, presenting great photo ops (slowed me down a bit because I had to remove my gloves and make sure no dirt or sweat would get on/in my camera, but I was glad for the mini break each time...I found it extremely hot and humid this morning). Here are a few of my finds today...
This is a dainty dayflower, which only blooms for 1 day and in fact, here on the river, it was gone by mid afternoon...I guess it was too hot for it, growing all over our yard (we have them around the cabin too). I especially like how the sun makes the petals look like they are sparkling!
It's been so long since I've seen the blooms from our bromeliads, I can't remember what this will look like once the buds open. But I like it just the way it is!
I watched the sun struggling to break through the early morning clouds as I walked today...I wish the clouds had hung around long enough for me to finish my chores!
