Is there a better way to celebrate the end of July / beginning of August?
I thought this ear of corn says everything about this time of year without saying a word - truly sometimes a pictures is worth...

A truly lovely morning.  I bought a Thunbergia a couple of days ago, and just got around to getting it planted.  It has awesome large blue blossoms - when it blooms it will be photo-worthy!

On a more mundane note, this time of year also means...thistles! 
We are Goldfinch Central at the moment.  They are working our feeders like crazy - they enjoy black oil sunflower seeds while waiting for the thistle seeds to ripen.  Goldfinches are some of the last birds to nest.  They line their nests with thistle seeds, and feed their babies the insects for Goldfinch babies!
