It is now a quiet morning in the neighborhood, well except for the recycle truck I can hear as it heads closer to our house! (Added a few minutes later) And now comes the garbage truck - which is louder than the recycle truck from earlier!
My bee balm has been blooming for quite a few weeks. Actually it is approaching the end of its flower time - but the bees, big fat clumsy bumble bees LOVE these flowers.
The hummingbirds also love to stop at the bee balm - but that is impossible for me to catch a picture. But still I enjoy their frequent visits.
My inside cat, Cleo loves to sit near the bird feeders and watch! I can hear chickadees and a couple of cardinals in the tree. If there are any squirrels in the tree they alert all the birds that there is a cat near by. But without their warning the birds must be able to tell that she is not a threat, inside behind the screen.
I made a wonderful breakfast this morning and am enjoying it, while typing and listening to he morning sounds. Bacon, eggs with summer squash, scallion and tomatoe all from our CSA. And cantaloupe, from our north side stand.
And what sounds of summer would be complete without mentioning the cicadas buzzing in the trees!
Every morning should start like this!
Enjoy the day
