Homestead Scenes ~ 13

After over 10 months of absence, I am happy to say that Homestead Scenes (by Evenstar) is back again! So here is # 13:

 

~Summer Joys~

Homestead Scenes ~ 13This beautiful rose was captured on our visit to Bok Tower gardens. We now have rose bushes planted that should bloom like this soon!

Homestead Scenes ~ 13We had tons of cool yellow and black Eastern Black Swallowtail caterpillars eating our parsley, but we didn’t mind because we love the butterflies! Blossom spotted this one over by the sunflowers and got a few pictures right after it hatched from its chrysalis! You can see the gorgeous colors and patterns on the underside (above) and inside (below) of the wings. God is such a master designer to be able to create something as splendid and amazing as the butterfly!

Blessings and a happy, hot, rest-of-the-summer!

    Your photos are absolutely beautiful. I especially like the bunnies. They are so sweet, and so are the children. Visiting from the From the Farm blog hop. :-)

    Oh my. The picture of that black racer gave me chills! The black swallowtail butterfly is beautiful! We have something similar here in California. Finally, I loved the picture of the kids – yes, it does look like a picture from the depression, but those kids look so happy and healthy! Thanks for sharing your pictures!

      I’m not into photographing snakes and such like Evenstar is. Things like that just don’t bother her. But I must admit I’m much more hardened now that I’ve encountered and killed a rattlesnake myself. Now little black racers feel quite innocent in comparison. Actually, I now welcome the sight of black racers or blue indigos (from a distance) because if they are here those dangerous rattlesnakes will stay away. Here’s the post about my rattlesnake in case you didn’t read it last year…http://www.livereadynow.com/i-shot-a-rattlesnake/.

  6. I’m not sure about the snake, but the other photos are stellar. And I love the black and white of your children…how cute!
