Small Pond on Rainy Day

If you're looking for Sky Watch, please scroll down one post.

The collage above is a collection of photos taken at a friend's tiny pond on a drizzly day. This has been a wet summer here in Ontario and everything is green and lush...especially the weeds. And the mosquitoes are !@#$%^& %^& &*() )(*& Phew! That feels better. ;-)

Starting from the bottom right-hand corner and moving clockwise: reflection on the pond, mushrooms (bet you thought I was gonna tell you what kind, eh? Bwahahaha! Wish I could!), yellow loosestrife, meadowsweet, nightshade, and swamp milkweed.

Thank you, Mary, The Teach, for giving me this award for the answer to the question "How can you tell the good guys from the bad guys?" (Or something like that.)

Truth be told, my answer made it sound way more simple than it actually is. But for me, my points are the first clues that something is amiss. I still -- after all these years -- make mistakes. Don't you hate it when someone you trusted turns out to be a bad guy?

But I'm still honoured that The Teach liked my answer. To visit The Teach, click HERE.

All beautiful photos, and you're forgiven for not knowing the name of the fungus since you knew all the flowers!

I love the flowers and landscapes on their nature are wonderful, especially when they have the sky as blue background, congratulations.

Our last summer was the same, despite the fact that most of OZ is in the midst of a shocking drought. We had wet,mild & cloudy, which those blasted mozzies loved! I love the gorgeous lushness of your photos...I can almost hear the insects buzzing, chirping,drumming etc

I really liked the collage.
Canadian mosquitoes I remember well from my many summers spent on the Saskatchewan prairies - horrible little devils!!!

I love that picture of the pond itself--don't know what about it makes it so special but it is. The whole collage is wonderful, too.
