August Break – August 9th
In the summertime, when the temperatures spend weeks in the 100 degree plus ranges, these fiery bushes pop out with a blaze of color. They’re evergreen, but seem to take to the heat really well.
I love them for the bursts of color they create. This particular bush is in our neighbor’s yard across the street. I can sit on our couch and see it from our front window.
They attract hummingbirds, too. We have hummingbirds everywhere around our house. This morning, as I walked out of the house, I could hear several of them scolding the neighbor cats that laze around our front yard.
I’m participating in Susannah Conway’s August Break project:
The plan is: you simply share one photo (or more!) per day on your blog – Monday to Friday, or every day .Or whenever you feel moved to share. Using any camera – DSLR, compact, Polaroid, Holga, iPhone (my choice), Instax, film or digital – with or without words – anything goes! – for the whole of August. No pressure – just looking at August through your camera lens as a way to be more present this summer. And to have a little break from the pressures and expectations of regular (wordy) blogging.
There are NO RULES, people! Just sunshine (hopefully) and a bit of fun. And lots of lovely photos to look at.
