A flower from the table this evening.

It was a warm, mostly sunny day today, so I wasn’t surprised to see active anoles in the yard. I was surprised when I opened the front door and found a little green tree frog sitting on the screen door.
When I reached to move it to the bushes, a safer place for a little frog, it hopped off the door onto the leg of my jeans. I stepped toward the bushes and the frog jumped into the bushes and disappeared. It’s late in the year to see a green tree frog.
This green anole lives around the screen door of our sliding glass doors. It often hides under the edge of the screen door, but looks out to see what’s going on.
The green anole moved down along the screen door until it was close to the basil pots, where there are still a few bees and butterflies coming around.
One more green anole sighting today. The screen door anole stays in that area, so I think this is a different green anole on the fence. It had caught a bug and was busy enjoying it.

Three days down, two to go this week. I successfully accomplished couple of major things at work today, which was a huge relief. Tomorrow we have a big field trip scheduled–a lot of excitement and commotion getting everyone organized and on the bus, but after that the day should go smoothly.
Just one photo today, a few minutes after the sun had set. There’s a thin crescent moon to the right of the tree, and an evening star–maybe Venus–to the left.

Another day over, another set of extra tasks completed and crossed off my list at work. I got home late again of course, but a bit earlier than yesterday.
When I went outside I noticed motion on the ground, which turned out to be this white grub rearing up in the grass. I think it will turn into a June bug or something similar next spring if it survives that long.
Evening sun on a pine tree east of my yard.
Sophie and Lulu were ambling around outside with me. Lulu lay down in the grass.
Sophie came over to check on her. Lulu was loving the attention.
Sophie circled around for little more checking.
Sophie tugged on Lulu’s ear, trying to interest her in playing. Lulu wasn’t impressed.
My sweet girls.

I got home late today, as I expected I would. I did take care of several things on my list at work, which makes me feel a little better. But then two more things to do got added to my list today, so maybe I came out about even. It’s better than getting farther behind.
It was sunset when I got home and got outside with the camera and the dogs. There were some pretty colors in the western sky behind the pine tree.
Lulu was following trails around the yard as usual.
And Sophie was sulking by the fence because Richard, the little dog next door, went back inside and wouldn’t stay out and play with her. The look on her face makes me laugh.
