Good morning on this lovely sunny morning! There is a light wind blowing with a temp of 57F (14C). Those green leaves are glowing so wonderfully against the blue sky. A very nice later summer morning. Nights are cool now though days can still get warm, though probably not many hot days left in our summer. Last year summer ended the middle of August, which is not far off. I’m hoping for a nicer fall than last year, however, whatever we get we will.😂 The chipmunks have been timing their trips amazingly well this morning so, as the squirrel leaves, the chipmunks arrive. And for the most part the chipmunks have been very good at taking turns this morning. There have been a couple of “discussions”, but not as many as usual.
On one occasion Pocket was sitting on the bench waiting for more peanuts to be put out on the step and another Chester came along. Chester didn’t see Pocket on the bench. Pocket waited…then jumped on Chester and the chase was on! That’s when I put more peanuts out. I have to wait until they’re busy or not around since sometimes, like this morning, they get a little anxious and try to come inside. That’s not a good idea. Skamper made it inside this morning, but Muffin was eating at the time and I managed to get Skamper back outside before Muffin knew what was going on. Thankfully. One other time the squirrel had just left over the edge of the deck and a chipmunk just came up. I guess the squirrel didn’t like that and he came flying back up so fast he ran into a flower pot and the chipmunk got away easily. Otherwise it went very well this morning.
Well, our featured image at the top is one of my bright red geraniums with the sun shining on it early in the morning.
Then in the picture above is a very light pink hollyhock. My landlord’s hollyhocks are not doing well this year, her red and maroon colored hollyhocks didn’t grow at all, only some different shades of pink. I hope you all have a most wonderful day and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
