|Our garden sunflowers|
I know, I know: it's not Tuesday yet, but since I forgot to write a Saturday post, I figured I'd just continue to mess up the week's schedule. It's going to be a different week, anyway. Tomorrow I will take my damaged car to the body shop and leave it to be fixed, then pick up my rental car and take off for Vashon Island on Wednesday. In between then and now, I'll finish packing. Since I will miss my usual Thursday hike, I'll be posting something about my retreat instead. Just a mixed-up week.
Our season's garden is just about over, but these beautiful sunflowers are still going strong. A few have begun to droop, but there are others that will probably not get a chance to bloom at all. I was looking at one of them and saw this pretty ladybug nestled inside.

It amazes me what good pictures my iPhone can take. The depth of field is not very deep, but I managed to get the ladybug in focus, even if the leaves in the foreground are blurry.
I am busy trying to remember everything I'm going to need for the week. When I return, my car will be fixed and perhaps the week after will be normal. I'll try to stay out of the way of huge tow trucks!
Sorry to learn your car was damaged DJan, hopefully the repair shop will make it like new again.ReplyDelete
What a pretty sunflower, I see the ladybug hiding inside :)
That's a nice shot of the ladybug. Very pretty against the green leaves.ReplyDelete
A different week gets you out of the routine which is a very good thing. Enjoy Vachon and remember to share.ReplyDelete
Have a great time at your retreat!ReplyDelete
I hope, and expect, your retreat is WONDERFUL.ReplyDelete
Ladybugs always make me smile (and they eat aphids too).
I have a couple of sunflowers in a blue bottle in the house. the squirrels tear them up outside. I do love them.ReplyDelete
Sunflowers are such lovely flowers! Nice photo.ReplyDelete
Pretty sunflowers, the deer ate most of mine. Make a list and check it twice for your retreat! :) Travel safely!ReplyDelete

Have fun on your retreat. Relax, laugh, and drink some coffee (or wine...).ReplyDelete
My weeks never have order or strycture now after years away from teaching. I am happier when I just create activities as time allows it. Have fun with the bloggers at the retreat and be safe. C an't waith to hear which room you'll have this year.ReplyDelete

I'm still on an iPhone 6s and it will have to do for a while yet. Sigh... Your photos are gorgeous, DJan.ReplyDelete
