The Month of July

 The month of July when by so fast!
The dragons came out...

The Blackberry Lilies popped...

The Salvia reached for the sky!

The Hummingbirds kept a watchful eye!

Tasty treats are growing...


...and we started building a shed!

Then we went to Ruby Falls...

...and The Incline!

And now we're back to work!

I hope your July went slower than mine!
I miss you all and hope to get back to blogging more regularly!

Hi Eve! I was wondering where you've been. It's hard to fit it all in sometimes. Love the pics! Looks like you've been having fun, too :-) I could use a shed for gardening "stuff." There's never enough room. Take care...glad you're back.

Roy said...

Hi Evie, great to see some of your latest garden images and that is a good looking shed.
Super shot of the falls.
Looking forward to more of your great posts.

Eve said...

Hi Toni! Everyone could use a good gardening shed! This one is not for me but I have one and maybe when this one is finished I can get some help shaping up mine! Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Roy! Boy I've missed visiting you! I really need to focus now!! hahaha with the camera too. Been so neglectful on these hot working summer days! Thanks for taking the time to say hi!

Hi Eve,

Time does fly. You have been as busy as a bee.
The new shed looks great....lots of space. Is it for gardening equipment or another purpose??

Good to see you back.

Well, you have been busy... the blogging will wait. It's always there.
You have a fig tree. Love 'em. Such wonderful fruit.... such a beautiful tree.
Enjoy the rest of the summer... it will be over before we know it.

Welcome back Eve, I have missed you and viewing your beautiful photography. Ruby Falls is an amazing place and the incline, wow! The storage shed is coming along quite nicely, I have visions of Guineas!

I love your shed! Time does go by too quickly! I have fond memories of Ruby Falls and that incline. My grandmother lived for years not far from the base of the incline.

It's good to hear from you, and I look forward to seeing you again! I hope the worse part of the heat will be over soon, before a bunch of plants start dying!

bluekat said...

Nope, flew by, as summer months tend to do. :)
Nice recap of the month. Indeed you have been busy. Ruby falls looks like a spectacular place to visit - what colors!

Eve said...

Hi Cheryl! It'll be a catch all kind of shed, but I hope to do a little gardening around it if possible. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi farmlady! I hope to get the figs before the critters! I'll make a trip over to your blog soon! Been peeking but not much commenting.

Hi Julie! You would love to visit Chattanooga, just breathtaking! Maybe some guineas will wander up and make a home here!

hi Deb! I'm waiting for slightly cooler weather...just not too cool!

Hi Kari! That waterfall brought tears! It was that beautiful!

Karin / Southern Meadows said...

Very impressive! I do like that shed. Chattanooga is such a fun place to visit! Did you visit the aquarium? Summer has just flown by and my kiddos go back to school this week...so sad!

Stunning photographs, as always.

Hi! Man it is nice to see some Evis shots! Looks good up there on your Mountain Top, looks green. Every thing here is burned up-108 today! Geeessshhhh! Looks like you had a little rain on the shed. I see some miles on the Iron.

Eve said...

Hi Karin! Haven't checked out the aquarium yet. One day!

Thanks Trobairitz!

Hey Pixarillio! That was the one and only rain! Thank goodness we got the roof on....ahh whoops!! hahaha! Hope some cooler temps hit soon! Not many Iron miles...been too busy :-(

You've been busy! Glad things are going well. Great photos.

Jenny said...

Hi Evie, I've missed your wonderful style of photo! Those first two shots are bootiful! (-:
Glad the shed project is coming on well. If you think you've been bad with blogging, think again!!!!! (-:

I love the photos you took! Really nice!

I love the little guy on the Dragonfly picture, I wonder what it is. Beautiful pictures, love how you caught the hummingbird. Where are the Ruby falls and the incline? Looks like a nice place to visit.

Eve said...

I think that is a Kadydid nymph George! Good eye! Ruby Falls and the Incline are in Chattanooga Tennessee. Also Rock City is a must see! All three are right there. It is worth any trip!

George F said...

First thing I do when I read a blog is center button mouse click on every picture to expand them into another tab, this way I get to see the pictures full size :-) I like to see the detail.
Tennessee, I have to go back. Only visited Tellico Plains after riding the Cherohala Skyway from Tail of the Dragon. I have also driven across Tennessee on I40 with a stop in Memphis to see Elvis mansion :-)

Eve said...

Well George I see you don't have Alabama on your map. It is a beautiful state and if you look for "out and about in Alabama on my side bar you might see some really nice places to check out. I live very near Lake Guntersville and it is just so beautiful. Sadly many of the trees were taken out at the state park by the tornados on April 27th.
