It’s been a rainy gloomy day here today but you can still find interesting things to photograph. Charlie found this spider web covered in droplets on a shrub in the yard.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie and Walter here. This past week we finally got some of the rain we needed.

Don’t worry it’s too cold for mosquitoes now.

There were plenty of indoor play sessions this week to keep us entertained.

How was your week? Do you have any exciting plans for the week ahead?

We hope you liked our selfies today.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We’ve had some nice weather lately and have enjoyed spending time outside in our yard this week.

Check out the hosta around me.

Our dad has been moving these hosta to this area under our white pine tree. They were in our perennial garden but we have to take down the linden tree that they were under so they had to be moved.

I like watching dad as he works.

Last week we showed you how the butterflies like the Blue Fortune Agastache so this week we are going to show you how the bumblebees like it.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

Those bumblebees get their saddlebags really loaded.

Check out the beautiful color of the blue caryopteris and the pink Rose of Sharon blooming behind me.

We hope you enjoyed a look at some of the bumblebees working in our yard this week.

Hi everyone! It’s Walter here. Sorry we haven’t posted much. Our only excuse is a lazy secretary.

We need to get better help if we want to post more often. BOL!

Today I want to show you some butterflies. They sure do love our Blue Fortune Agastache.

I hope you enjoyed a look at a couple of the butterflies in our yard this week.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. There aren’t many new flowers blooming in our yard so we thought we would show you some of the creatures that are hanging around the garden.

Hey Millie! What is that bug in the grass?
Where?! He better not crawl on me.

Okay. Maybe there isn’t a bug in the grass that is about to crawl on Millie but we found this katydid on a daylily.

Maybe if I hide under here those pups won’t find me.

I’m feeling brave sitting on this daylily bud.

The next thing we want to show you is the cabbage white butterfly. We always have plenty of these butterflies in our yard every year but they are difficult to capture since they are often moving so fast.

This next creature is a first sighting at our house.

Long Tailed Skipper

According to Wikipedia the caterpillar of these butterflies are pests of some crops, especially beans. We think the reason we saw this one is that the crop field just a few hundred yards from our house has beans in it this year. Usually they grow corn but have changed it up this time.

I think we found some interesting creatures to show everyone today.
I’m keeping my eyes out for more of those katydids. Did you see how big those pincers were on that thing?

We hope you enjoyed a look at some of the nature in our yard this week.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here.

We would like you to paws for a moment…

Our pawrents had to abandon us for a while to get these beauties but we think it was worth it.

Hi everyone. It’s Millie and Walter here. We aren’t spending much time outside today as we are under a heat advisory but we sure are thankful for a working AC system.

In addition to our selfies, we thought we would show you some black and white flower pictures for a change of pace.

Now here are our selfies.

I look good in color or sepia

Being a black dog I always look good in monochrome.

We hope you are enjoying your Sunday and staying cool.

We’re joining The Cat on My Head for their Selfie Sunday blog hop and want to extend our sympathies to the Cat on My Head family as they lost their sweet Mau recently and are dedicating this weeks blog hop in his memory. You should check out the hop to see some of the other selfies. Thanks for stopping by.

I don’t want to forget to show you the coreopsis I’m posing in front of.

I was doing some more super model posing for this picture. Don’t worry, I always get paid well for my modeling work. I hope you enjoyed a look at what is blooming in our yard this week.
