Freaky Friday

Another dungeon find! I am guessing this was one of my dolls...Not sure what that white substance is on it...hopefully it will come off....
Just a mess!

Praying Mantis

I found this Praying Mantis on our house the other day.....I eventually put him on this pot of flowers..
Before that, he was on our it is attacking my camera lens!
Bad picture, but here it is actually on the lens! Too funny!

These were taken early one morning last week....probably 30 seconds between each bank moving in real windy, much cooler for a bit, but no rain for us...It was awesome!
These are looking North, off our back deck....Also saw "our" flock of turkeys last night and again this morning....maybe 50 ft or so right behind our house....sure enjoy watching them!

Thursday Randoms

See the cat?
There he is...under the truck. Staying out of the hot sun, but I think the main reason he was there is that he was keeping an eye on the Goldfinches on the sunflower!
Good people.....gone, but not forgotten.
Sarah bought me this at our church's yard sale as a gag's big, probably two feet high..and just screams 60's or 70's! I think it'll look great paired with the orange glass lamp Dixie brought me last Fall!
Summertime lunch from the garden!
Richard planed two rows of zinnias in the garden...the butterflies love it, as does this bee!

Freaky Friday....Dolls from the Dungeon Edition

A project I started today....brought up a few of the dolls I had stored in the see if I could clean them up for Emily....As with most things from the dungeon, this is only part of them....I think they are all having bad hair days...
Well now....appears the dungeon was probably not the best place to store these....well, and of course I didn't clean them/make them nice before I stored them, so that didn't help a thing! 
Two things....once again, They should have been cleaned and stored properly.....and I am wondering why I didn't finish my massive My Little Pony project before starting this one?

Wednesday Photo Dump

The last week or so we have been lucky enough to have a bunch of turkeys in our field and the field behind our house....hens and their babies.....hard to get a picture due to the high grass, but I sure enjoyed listening to them early in the mornings..
Chipmunk in our yard.....Guess Jack hasn't killed them yet anyway. They are so cute!
Reflection of the daylillies and our water hydrant in a puddle in the driveway last week during the rainy times..
Guess this will be known as the flood shortened river season..Has been up so much this year....This picture was taken July 10
July 12
A good sized log has floated in right below our stairs....we'll hope it goes on out when the river goes down.

Funny Fungus

Yellow fungi....By a tree in our yard, last week during the rainy days!

A few pictures I took of a pair of Goldfinches working on that sunflower head by our garage....I was surprised to see this, for one I didn't know the head was ripe....also I figured they would be off eating weed seeds or bugs or something.  These were taken Sunday morning..
