It was hotter than a firecracker on the 4th of July and the heat is still hanging around. I thought it might be nice to sit inside and see a parade of summer flowers that are blooming in my yard in this intense heat! I have more crape myrtle trees planted than any other trees, They are great in Southern Gardens and fave for the birds. I went to the Google Index and got a few links (below) if you wish to look further into these plants. I noticed all these trees are available for sale on Google-so go to the Index if You want some of them. Your photostudy tonight is A Parade of Flowers blooming on the grounds. Enjoy!

This new baby male cardinal (still spotty) is learning to feed on the feeder the sways in the wind. (The other feeding stations are on the ground or the boardwalk.
Documenting this Historic Event: It rained.
...this is brendasue signing off from Rainbow Creek. See You next time. If You live anywhere it is Hot right now, please avoid this heat as much as possible. I am walking and gardening in the early a.m. and at sunset. In fact, I am sleeping in air conditioning during the hottest part of the day and writing at night when the dogs are sleeping! I have arrived at the point in my life where I do whatever I want to do 100% of the time! I answer to no one as the parents are gone, the bosses are gone, the husbands are gone and the kids are gone. I have no commitments to anything. Some people may feel lonely, but I am one Happy Camper! I know some very busy people who would trade places with me for even an hour. I write this blog almost daily because I want to not because I have to. I want to share (and record) my life at the Bird Sanctuary so that my new photofriends around the world can get an idea of what it is like in Texas (in the woods). I want everyone to know that the American People are different than any Government body. I want to be friends with everybody in the whole world. Cheers!
