Damselfly

Image
August 15, 2018. This beauty (specifically, a male male marsh bluet (Enallagma ebrium) damselfly) was hovering around the back yard. Today was a warm damp day I spent catching up on paperwork, doing blockchain research, and following ball games - a so-so game between the Tigers and the Chisox and a thriller between the Mariners and the As (still in extra innings as I type). https://flic.kr/p/27ntNPu

The Chrysalis

Image
August 14, 2018. Today wasn't a very good day. Not because I got nothing done - I actually got quite a bit done. But there was the fire alarm and I got wet waiting out in the rain and I was really tired in the evening and I couldn't get my photo taken properly. Just - one of those days. This is the replacement photo taken the following day so you don't have to look at a blurry chrysalis. https://flic.kr/p/28Kg3Rt

Boneset

Image
August 13, 2018. This is a newcomer to our back yard this year. "Eupatorium perfoliatum or boneset is a common North American perennial plant in the aster family." Today was a beautiful summar day; sadly, I spent most of it in an office. https://flic.kr/p/28FYvax

Autumn Joy

Image
August 12, 2018. It's not autumn yet, and that's why these sedum flowers have not yet turned pink. But they're getting close. Today was a wipeout - I was up till 2:00 a.m. after the football game, and up early, and took a nap, and went to bed early - did a little blockchain research, that's it. https://flic.kr/p/28FYcVH

Caledonia Road

Image
August 11, 2018. It was a beautiful day for a ride Saturday and I took advantage of a light wind and cool tempratures to post my best speed of the year. Then, in the evening, we watched our RedBlacks defeat Johnny Football. https://flic.kr/p/28Ywqxq

Elderberries

Image
August 10, 2018. You have to look closely but there are nascent elderberries growing here in the red twigs that used to hold white flowers. Had a couple meetings, got a new CPAP mask, and worked on gRSShopper Chatter until the internet dies at the office. https://flic.kr/p/27eASKQ

King Harvest (Has Surely Come)

Image
August 9, 2018. Tomatos grown from seed at the homestead. They are small but they are delicious. Today I made a lot of progress on the gRSShopper 'Chatter' feature. Otherwise, it was an ordinary day. https://flic.kr/p/28AaMjR
