Summer scenery

This little fellow and many more like it have been frolicking in the yard. They are incredibly fast. I was delighted to capture it in a photo.

The kwanso daylily in the background is one of several I planted a couple of years ago. They seem to have happily settled in and are blooming now.

More rain has meant more mushrooms. I found these two beside the driveway when I was taking my morning walk.

A ladybug is hard at work in the garden. Someone else has been munching on the leaf.

The mimosa strigillosa, also known as a sunshine mimosa, or powderpuff plant, is another Florida native that I've added to the yard. I'm looking forward to the next native plant sale at The Green Marketplace.
