It took a few days to rest up and recover from our trip. I had so many photos to go through from the trip I couldn’t convince myself to take my camera outside. After watching more and more of the cone flowers open up I finally went out. The cone flowers are just beautiful!
The butterfly weed is awfully pretty too.
I had been watching this birdhouse from inside the kitchen for a few days. The bird(s) had been very active flying in and out. So I got a chair and my camera and sat out on the front porch for an hour or so.
