Blue flowers.These weeds (well, I didn't plant them) close their flowers at night. But in the morning they're up early to catch the first sunlight.

Front porch geraniums

White geranium flower.Geraniums, front porch, Tuesday evening.

In memory of my grandmother, I keep geraniums. They were her favorite (although she preferred the red ones), and I grow mine in one of her old planters

Backyard berries

Red berries.Late summer berries in the backyard.

The hummingbird was incensed that I would invade her domain and kept buzzing the back of my neck as I took this photo.

Figuring out the remote control

Me, taking a photo with a remote control.Me, Saturday evening.
