New critter in town ...

It's another hot one today.  But that didn't keep me from venturing outside to take a few photos today.  My hydrangeas are quite sad and droopy.  Just too hot for them.  But I thought they would serve well for Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday.  I don't do many textures ... there are so many of you out there who do them so beautifully.  But it's still fun to play around with texture.  I also added a phrase from one of Mary Oliver's poems "Morning Poem".   I so love her work.

While I was outside, I checked on our tomato plants.  This is our first year to carve out a little space for a very very small garden.  Primarily a tomato garden!  They're looking fine.  What do you think?

And last, but not least ... we have a new critter in town!  Caught Mr. Groundhog running around the yard the last few days.   The cast just keeps growing and growing! 

I'm not sure about Mr. Groundhog.  The critters are getting a bit big!  I wonder if he knows Punxsutawney Phil.  Or maybe if he just stays around, I could be like Bill Murray in the Groundhog Day movie ... living the same day over and over again.

But if that's the case, let's wait for cooler days!
