Celtic Tree Month of Hazel

Sunny, hot, humid

I thought I had nothing to post today, but it turns out that I do!

The photo at the top is one of our, well, I’m not sure if it’s a Christmas Cactus or a Thanksgiving Cactus. Blooming in August. The years we were on Cape, they’d bloom several times a year, which is fun.

This other photo is of the red geranium. Any idea what that weird bug is? I’m not sure if it’s a good one, or one I should be worried about. It kind of looks like a goth moth or butterfly, with the lacy wings, but also reminds me of the black hornets who come in on the front porch.

It’s hot and humid, which means I’m grumpy. I’m looking forward to autumn.

How’s your last week of August?
