It has been cooler with rain the last couple of days -- right now it is about 70 degrees, but the humidity is 95%... It still feels a lot better.

I've gotten some fascination with a weed that is growing in the Wisteria bush. Julie in FL told me the name of the weed is 'gallberry.' They've ripened into a dark purple color...

It'll soon be time for the hummingbirds to take off for the year, so here are a few shots. Aren't they precious? Can you see the one sitting it the tip top of the tree?

Here are a few of the last hybiscus for the year as well. The buds are from yesterday, and the flowers this morning.

Aren't hummingbirds wonderful! I have a feeder on the front porch and one of the back. The hummers whiz around the house and chatter and fight all day! I have noticed that all of my visitors are female...guess all of the males have headed south.

Your hybiscus are lovely.

theweed with the purple berries is also called pokeberry, and i believe the berries are poisonous to humans, but the leaves are able to be eaten. From what i remember it is a pretty common southern dish in some parts of the south.
