{Keeping} :: July's Firsts

2 - crepe myrtle blooms

17 - juvenile cardinals: males with a bit of red on breast, tail & wings

20 - cicadas making lots of noise, have found a few exoskeletons

22 - painted bunting at our banana plant

31 - frostweed blooms


  1. That juvenile cardinal in the see-through birdhouse! He is adorable. And I know I've told you we don't have cardinals here--we also don't have cicadas! A friend's mom brought a handful from Oklahoma for us (both dead and exoskeletons) and my kids were SO impressed because they had never seen bugs that large. LOL

    1. Oh, I can't believe y'all don't have cicadas either! That is just mind-boggling (only because I have grown up with them and can't imagine a summer without their ear-piercing calls!)

    2. Yes, my kids are deprived over here of cardinals, cicadas, lightning bugs...and snow! :)
