Creating, crafts, gardening, quilting and life on a little ranch.

All summer long the weeds have been launching a fierce attack in my garden area. So I’m trying to counter attack and my efforts are paying off.

Weeding can be good therapy, but not in 103º temperatures.

Luckily, I was rewarded with a few creatures coming through my little piece of land.

First,  I saw a bunny rabbit resting quietly in a corner. I’ve seen him before, he visits frequently.  Sometimes a friend’s dog will chase it, but he can’t catch him; the bunny is too quick.

Dragon flys have been cruising around my plants.  My favorite is the orange colored one.

A strange looking one showed up this year for the first time. It has a baby blue body and it’s wings are transparent with some black rectangles on them.  But unfortunately my picture does not do it justice.

Time to get back to my weeding.

While the rest of the family watched the S.F. Giants game, my eyes were on the blue vessel that was slowly gliding across the San Francisco Bay.💜❤️💜❤️

We are now having 100+ degree temperatures, so I think that means summer is here and this is where we will be spending our evenings, if it cools down enough.

Sitting enjoying our back yard is relaxing and gives us time to enjoy our surroundings.  The bird tweets and chirping of crickets is our music; of course hubby would like loud music from the radio, but I am partial to the sounds of nature.😃

We have a potted lemon grass plant to help combat the mosquitos.

Flowers are always a visual treat for us.
