Mid August Flowers

Thank you for all the beautiful and colorful pictures, Allen. I’ve been so busy preparing for my siblings visit from Singapore that I don’t even have the time to go out and clear the front garden slope .. lol … hope that we won’t get a citation from the city. That’s also one of the reasons that I would like to get out of this place. We are driving up to New York to meet them, staying in NY for a few days …. then going on road trips up to the Poccono, Niagara down to PA then to Atlantic City .. then it’s time for them to go back to their reality in Singapore …. lol … September is downtime for me .. so .. I won’t be going online to visit and say ‘hello’. After that, October will be selling house time … hopefully the buyer will be patiently waiting for us to come back home and get the selling going. Sending the brightest Reiki blessings your way, Allen – during this lifetime. Happy Weekend. Namaste

This little shin high plant grows south to Florida and crosses the Mississippi River only in Texas and Oklahoma.

Most marsh St. John’s worts have green leaves but occasionally they…
