When it is 100 F in the sun, there is nothing like jumping into the pool to cool off. My cute little sparrows frolicked in this plateful of water I put on my deck rail for them. The had so much fun splashing over and over again. It was a delight to watch!
Poetry in motion
Sparrows’ pool party gets wild
Temps soar to 100 F

This morning while filling my bird feeder, I saw two beautiful monarchs on my fading zinnias. They must have lost their map on their way to Mexico! They were so beautiful with deep orange and black colors. I thought my zinnias were finished a month ago, but I left them grow as they fell over onto the fence. Surprisingly they kept on blooming, even with a white dusty mold that came on their leaves. In another week we will likely get a heavy frost that will finish them off. Here is a taste of the late summer beauty I saw. Poetry without words! Photos: Dwight L. Roth
Fall beauty is all around. Although it has not rained here in three weeks my zinnias keep on blooming. They are appreciated by the butterflies and moths that stop by for a taste of their sweet nectar. Yesterday a monarch was on my butterfly bush. Today I saw this beautiful butterfly moving from flower to flower. It is called Gulf Fritillary and is common in North Carolina So I got my camera for another round of poetry in motion. Enjoy the show! No words needed!
Seems like almost every small town in North Carolina has a train track running right through the downtown and a water tower with the town name on it. Trains roll through and shaking windows and rattling doors as they fly by!
