Just visiting . . .

in each photo, there is a visitor of some sort .. pollinators galore enjoying False Sunflowers of yellow .. Zinnias of pink .. Cosmos of orange and yellow .. Viburnum clusters .. and Turk's-Cap Lily .. each has a reason to be here .. in the Garden of Surprises and also The Dogwood Patch - A Garden .. 2017 © All Rights Reserved

Zing ..

caught you in-flight ... no idea who / what this critter is .. but, he showed up when the photos were loaded .. a definite ZING ! you weren't expecting me in your photo .. most certainly not .. glad to have you ! ** 1 note **

weaving ...

art .. between leaves of Azaleas .. patterns in Nature .. to get a really close look .. Left click on photo -- then make it full size .. Art is all around us .. sometimes we happen to be in the right place .. at the right time to see it .. no, don't know the name of this spider .. have seen it someplace (you know when you are looking for something else) ..

.. they call me

.. The Sweeper .. am supposed to clean the Deck Diner .. since none of the birds come with brooms .. guess it's not a bad job .. there are always things to nibble on .. in between sweeping
