Goodbye to July

Images of July.

Sunflower with bee.

Sunflower without bee.

Giant Swallowtail caterpillar on lemon tree.

Black Swallowtail caterpillar on dill.

A friendly spider.

And spider lilies.

A gerbera.

Another gerbera. 

And yet another gerbera.

Gulf Fritillary butterfly.

Giant Swallowtail butterfly.

Male Monarch butterfly - you can tell by the two black dots on his hind wings.

Sulphur butterfly on anisacanthus.

A green anole displaying his throat pouch to assert his territorial rights and maybe entice a mate.

A little green treefrog - just chillin'.

A southern leopard frog, chillin' in his own way.

And, of course, Bertie, the new addition to our household.

It's been an eventful month. I wonder what August will bring.


  1. Your garden looks like a wonderful wildlife habitat. Love the new addition... so cute!

    1. We've certainly tried to make it a wildlife friendly space. I agree that Bertie is cute. He's also highly entertaining.

  2. Always love to see the tree frogs! Hope Bertie doesn't find them, although he is rather gorgeous too. Have fun!

    1. Bertie's strictly an inside cat so the tree frogs are safe. They are wonderful creatures, aren't they?

  3. Great creatures you've got there, Dorothy! And Bertie is so cute.

    1. The critters add a lot of interest to the garden. And Bertie adds a lot of interest to the house.
