The first three shots are from a walk on the last day of August.

We walked in the morning but it was already hot and humit.

Walking in the shade made it fairly pleasant.

Back home the birds, like the catbird above and the cardinal below, were beating the heat on my deck baths.

When I first spotted the carolina wren, I thought she might be injured.

I was relieved when she flew up on the chair.

Nature Notes and Our World: My green world with a monumental fungus


A wet summer has continued to keep the greenery looking more like spring than late summer.

It has also been very mild temperature wise.

Even the hot days aren't as extreme as most summers.

When I spotted the fungus above, I half expected a wood nymph to peer out of a layer.

The humidity is rather oppressive at times but overall this summer has been the most bearable of any summer I can remember in central North Carolina.

Today's Flowers: A Neighbor's Rudbeckia

I'm not sure what the red flower above the rudbeckia is but maybe canna lily. I always enjoy this neighbor's front yard. The house has recently been sold and someone new moved in. Fortunately the summer flowers are the same.
