|Monarchs in bloom?|
The monarchs and the hummingbirds are an interesting contrast. The monarchs lazily float around the zinnias and will take their time on a flower if left undisturbed. This is why we were able to get a series of monarch on zinnia pictures a few days ago. On the other hand, below is one of my attempts at capturing a hummingbird on film.
|Do you see the hummingbird? Neither do I.|
The one moment I could probably have caught a hummingbird on film was the moment the camera was about 100 feet away. Never mind.
|The melons were GOOOD this year.|
Each of these varieties have their characteristics for taste, texture and growing habits. We're hard pressed to pick a favorite of these three because we've enjoyed each of them. And, if you add in the small number of Ha'Ogen melons we've managed to grow and nice number of Eden's Gem and Minnesota Midgets... Well, we've been happy. I don't know how we'll react when we don't have any more melons for breakfast on the farm.
|Then, there is this.|
