And Welcome to Everybody. Hope you are having a good day. If you are having a bad day, I hope you find some good in it for yourself. I remember as a child if I was to in to how bad everything was, Mom would say: Get Outside and Play until you change your attitude. It always worked then as it does now. In fact, I just decided to stay outside all of the time! When you get to the point in your life that you live alone as everyone close to you has died or gone, It doesn't matter what kind of attitude you have as nobody sees or cares. The essence of all life is in the struggle to survive. Today, my trees survived because it finally rained. Yeah!
Okay, let's have a mini nature class. Enjoy!

Faves in my Garden.
This small flowering tree does great in Texas and blooms throughout our hot summers. This is an old favorite you will see in older areas of Houston. People older than me (yes, there are some) referred to this tree as Rose of Sharon. You can look it up under both names. The one shown here is a single purple/red eye. Bees and hummingbirds love them. They love my shady yard and do well as an understory tree.
My favorite summer flowering tree is the Crape Myrtle. The hummingbirds love them also. I will have many photostudies coming up of this tree. The flower shown above (Kandy Kane) is a miniature crape that will grow to about 10 to 12 feet tall.
Let The Class Begin!
Kates Cabin has a small sundeck off the back porch. It is just large enough for a table & chairs and one hammock. This is the skyview from the hammock. (I know, it is a hard job but somebody has to do it.) Our photostudy today will be on this square of sky and the Silent Gliders that pass above me.
This concludes our photostudy of things that glide by silently in the sky. (My kind of air show, a quiet one!)
