Lazy Hazy Days Of Summer

 
Summer days here in
California.
 
Purple flowers
at the trail.


 
Taking a drive.
Can you see the
reflection of the trees
in my coffee?


 
The last of the roses
at Jess' shower.

 
My son made Smores
one night.
I had sweet memories
of camping
with the little ones.

Saw this fellow in
the country.
I think
it's a neighbor's pet.


 
I take pics of this old
tree every season
just to see the difference
in the branches.

 
I am in awe
with red birds.


 
These are creepy to me.
And I only see
them during the summer
months.


 
The woodpecker
is such a vigorous bird.

 
This mini hat
makes me smile.  : )


Happy Fourth of July,
friends!

Great photo's Sherri. I will be glad when Fall comes as we have had too much hot weather already. LOL

The drought has not helped anyone with their yards or gardens. Hopefully we will get the much needed rain this winter.

Have a wonderful 4th

Hugs,
Mary

GOod morning dear heart.

You are documenting your summer well. I have been so busy in the last week that I haven't taken a photo in days, and July is already here! One more month and a few weeks in August is all that is left for my summer, but it's been a great one. Lazy days for sure, and we all need some of that during the year!

HUGS TO YOU DEAR FRIEND!

Hello darling one! I meant to tell you how CUTE that little red bird is! I don't know what kind it is, but sooooo sweet!

Thanks for stopping by the blog! My goodness, I have to post for July! We are staying in keeping a very low profile today. We've been out and about for days and staying up late, which does not agree with me the next day!

Peace and love to you, always!

Happy 4th July dear Sheri. A lovely collection of photos for us today; I love the red bird, of course :) and agree, the lizard thing is a bit creepy.
The tree is beautiful, and no wonder you picture it each year. Have a good week. xx
