the sun is setting on this day. it’s getting darker so much more quickly now.
we are having a little break from the extreme florida heat. it’s cooler now…at night, and in the mornings. i know i should enjoy it because it won’t last for long.
i sat on the back porch and listened to the cranes fly over. i love their song…it’s melancholy, though – it sounds like they are crying for something. but i noticed they were in pairs, so at least it’s not a lonely cry…
we got the sunroom ready to paint, but decided to put-off starting until tomorrow.
i need to plant some more roses. i am missing lavender and coral. my favorite are the old-fashioned ones that have a deep, strong smell and huge cabbage-like blooms – i especially like the ones that are yellow with coral tips (ashley told me those are her favorite, too).
we had pizza by the pool in the cool night air – not very healthy, but fun…and memorable.
i’m still waiting for my songbirds to return – the cardinals and the bluejays. maybe i neglected them for too long. i do hope they give me another chance. i miss them terribly, plus i really want to photograph them. maybe tomorrow evening i’ll get a picture of the cranes.
maybe the cranes are my new songbirds.
i’m okay with that. they are beautiful in their own way…everything has it’s own kind of beauty and song.
