This morning, the grass was so dry that it crunched beneath my feet. Every few steps a grasshopper flew up in front of me, narrowly missing a bath in my coffee cup. Buzzing black flies shooed me out of the shady place near the Chinese Elm Tree. So, I decided to put my coffee in the house and snap my "Sunday Stroll" photos in the front garden for a change. There I found a monarch and plenty of bees, so they have a starring role in my photo shoot.
