Julep & Derby's new assigned spot on the deck.
This is prime turtle watching territory.
I secretly wish that turtle would find another home.
You would think every time the westies see
the turtle they act like it's the first time.
We are graced with a few butterflies in our garden.
My guess is they're preparing for the journey
to their winter resting spot.
My dad started these Zinnia plants [from seed] this spring.
It was my lucky day when he gave me a few of his plants.
Not only do I love Zinnia's but so do the gold Finch.
