Monday is the first day of Fall and I can’t wait! It is very hot and humid here today, so I am looking forward to the monsoon leaving and temps. beginning to cool. Despite the gross atmosphere, we had to go out and pick pomegranates today. Ripe pomegranates are another sure sign of fall. When Mr. LOTBB looked out the window and saw our friendly neighborhood Mockingbird out there pecking away at the pomegranates, he insisted we go out and pick them right away. Can’t we wait until it cools down a bit, I pleaded? It was about 3 pm., the hottest and stickiest part of the day, but there was no stopping him. The pomegranates must be saved! And they were.
The humidity brings out a lot of bugs. Along with the pesky ones, the beneficials come out too. This guy was a little taken aback when I started getting in his face with my camera!
Finally, I saw this oh-so-cute little bundle doing his best to hide behind a bucket. I hope he is okay and that his mother is not far away. He was such a little thing and so sweet. I was afraid of scaring him away, but I managed to get a few shots and then left him in peace.
