I'm with you Sige - I love fall, it's my favourite season but just like QK says, we barely had a summer!

I would just like to see some rain to put out the fires!
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

Hey! Where'd our chicken rescuing lady go? :135:

Nevermind. I found the link so I can go look at the chicken pictures. :chicken:

I have a new hobby. Watching Leaf cutter bees destroy the geraniums. LOL Little devils! They really like the hot pink but not the bright orange so much. They are also very hard to get pictures of when they are flying off with their little chunk of petal, but my gosh do they look adorable when they are doing it. (It takes them around 5-10 seconds to cut the petal and leave.)

Very blurry shot of one taking off with it's treasure. Top of the picture kind of in the middle...

One on it's back doing the cutting, middle of the picture. (Notice the difference between the petals on the pink and orange flowers? [icon_lol2.gif] )

And one getting ready to start vandalizing the flowers. :D

Those little bees sure like them. hahaha They don't touch the plain old red ones. The petunias are getting notches taken out too, but only certain colors. I'd really love to see these bees nests, they must be gorgeous. :D

Yes, I've seen those pictures. No hot pink in those. These bees don't touch the leaves much and don't bother any yellow or white flowers. They love the bright colors!

Why do you feel sorry for us? :135:

Look at the size of that hornet in the upper right corner. You're doomed.

The fire in Peachland above Antler's Beach is dooming us. :up:
