Ready or not--here I come

Just a couple more of the Great Blue Heron. Stalking something. He crept along so carefully.


***************
It is supposed to still be another hot one here today. Right now the sun is behind clouds and not horribly hot yet. It clouded up late yesterday and there was a strong breeze. We were hoping for rain, but nothing came of it.

Our yard is almost completely brown...we don't try to water it. Just too much to do on city water. Our city used to give summer discounts, but they stopped that a few years ago. We still water our tomatoes, bell peppers, and flowers. I do not think any of them would survive without it.

I am not sure what we are doing today...may just stay home. We were thinking of going to get Lorelei but she has a summer cold and does not feel good at all. I talked to Sarah last night and she ask Lorelei if she wanted to talk to Mamaw and the first words out of her mouth were, "I want to come to your house, Mamaw!" I promised her that as soon as she got to feeling better that we would come get her.

Wonderful pictures, I can really get a sense of the stalking. I am sorry Lorelei is sick, how wonderful that she wants to be with you when she is sick, that is a very high honor. You are her comforter.

Did the heron get what he was stalking?
You are not getting any rain and we are getting to much - there must be a happy medium somewhere!!!
Hope Lorelei feels better real soon.

I'm sorry, I'm behind on your posts! I read through them all and love, love the pictures! I hope Lorelei feels better soon. Summer colds are miserable.
