Butterflies love lantana




I love the lantana I planted earlier in the season. It grows great in the drought and loves the heat. The butterflies like it too.
In the first one I used the dry brush filter in photoshop.

Pesky little things.



So this is a yellow jacket. Last night Ralph was stung multiple times by them. Not really sure how many but enough that he was carried away in an ambulance and taken to the hospital. After he was stung he started to complain that he couldn't see, couldn't breath and was dizzy. We were walking to the car to take him the the ER and before he could get to the car he collapsed. And let me tell you, I do not respond well to these situations. I panic and don't know what to do. Basically act like a blubbering idiot. Thank God for some fast acting neighbors! But all is well after being pumped with benadryl and steroids. We left a few hours later with a prescription for an epipen.

We've got the slide back!


And as soon as it was delivered on Friday the boys wanted to put it up and play.
