Game Called on Account of...

I have a blog post started.  I do.  It's probably seventy-five percent there. But I can't get it to finish right. It's Tuesday for gosh sakes and I've got nothing here on Middle Passages to show for it.  So, it's going to be a photo week.  Not even very good photos...all off the I-phone.  But the variety gives a gist of some of the stuff that's been going on around here.  Mostly, I'm reading and writing, which is going well.  It's just the blog post writing that's not.


The scene of a retirement party.  Okay, if anyone ever asks, I'd be delighted to retire right here!







Had to send this guy back.  But a couple of his grown up brothers made for an impromptu supper on the grandparents' deck.  Summer is not over yet folks!






Sentinels in the fog.







     
Over looking the 9/11 Memorial Service





        
I'm late in posting this.  But it needs no words.








Did I say it's not Fall yet?  Tell it to this guy.










The garden is just about done.  This fella isn't helping. Anyone care to hazard a guess as to his species?  Some say Swallowtail butterfly, others Monarch butterfly. Never seen one like it before, but for a caterpillar, it's pretty cool.  Just not on my parsley.


Hope you are all having a great week.

I think the photos are great!
No idea on the caterpillar. He looks like he'll become a really nice butterfly though. If he lives...

Your pictures are amazing. The quality from an IPhone astounds me constantly. Now ANYONE can take a decent photograph:) That caterpillar is gorgeous. No ideas on what sort of butterfly he'll be, but I understand you not liking him on the parsley.

I don't know if you follow the blog Unicorn Bell or not. They are accepting submissions this week of your query. There is a guideline posted at the end of last week on how to submit and the email address. I remember you posting something a while back about your query. Perhaps it would be worth it to have other people with query experience weigh in.

Here is the link: http://unicornbell.blogspot.com/

I hope it helps if you decide to give it a whirl. I submitted mine and they really whipped it into shape!!!

Photos are good, too :) No worries! Even posting at all is a big win some weeks.

I second Robin on Unicorn Bell. It's been really helpful. Go for it!

You're much too humble. These pictures are all terrific. I especially like the leaf and the caterpillar. Whatever kind he is, he's a beauty.

Your phone takes some pretty good pictures. Pretty leaf.

That leaf is beautiful. I still say the caterpillar is a swallowtail because... I looked it up in my book. Besides the monarch caterpillar has yellow, black and white stripes with a pair of little black feelers at both ends.

I love looking at your pictures; they always remind me of home (MA). And wow! That leaf is gorgeous!
