Green days of August

I'm not entering the August daily blog because I will be gone two weeks, plus company from out of town, kids returning who want to go the ocean, things to finish up in the yard and house, spending time with family and get the idea! I'm picking up my layaway this week and it includes a new toy! An air compressor! Yay! I can't wait to have some fun with that!

The theme for August is green. What a nice theme. It's the same theme as my house is getting! haha.

So, in honor of this nice theme, here you go! I'm so addicted to macros. Every time I take macro shots I am reminded again that I need to get back to SLR. I will. I'm starting the research now.

One of my big thistles. This plant stands almost as tall as I do.

One of my pumpkin blossoms.



I caught this bug from across the yard. This dandelion is by the house. I'm sitting in my lawn swing. Of course, I didn't know it was there when I took the picture!

A nice little spider. I had to put the leaf under him so I could get the picture. The wind was blowing too strong to catch him just hanging on the web.

I found a tiny little thistle bush in the ditch. None of these thistle flowers are very big. All < than an inch!
