Want a Quickie ? Today 8.18.13


(All “Quickies” are photos taken and posted the same day)
These photos were taken this morning at the Gardens at Waters East. - - 8.18.13  Out running around the gardens at noon today, pulling a weed here and a weed there, and sometimes many weeds here and there!  Took some photos – of the “nonweeds” that caught my eye, and a few friends enjoying their time in the gardens.

  1. Your flowers look great, and I enjoyed your butterfly and bee photos. I have Echinacea and Balloon flowers blooming too. If I see a Crab spider I always smash them because I can't stand to see them killing bees.
