Buckeyes and tumbles

While watering the garden this morning 

I watched as a Buckeye came 

for breakfast.

This next generation Buckeye 
is much smaller than those that emerged
in the Spring.

There are other butterflies
out early in the day.

The Duskywings are
gorgeous on the Bright-eyed Cosmos.

We have finished our first batch
of tumbled rocks.
We will refill the tumbler with more rocks
 and begin again.
It takes lots of rocks to do a project.

We are tending the garden and reading project books.

With temperatures back into the 100's
we are keeping an eye on the birds.
We have cooling stations set up in the shade
 with lots of water and fresh oranges.

The way you had your rocks arranged on that doily I thought it was something you baked. It looked like a sweet treat to me. Hmmmm I must be hungry. :) Love the butterfly photos.
