Pink Out of the Dark


SmugMug Daily Link

My daily photo today is a fancy pink coneflower shot taken in my friend and neighbor Judy's yard.  I darkened the background and cropped it a bit plus using Picasa to add the border.

Judy also has this allium? growing in her yard.  It's a neat round ball, and I've captured just a corner of it in the shot below.

We had rain in the AM, and I thought this sweetgum tree leaf looked neat wet.

This fly just sat there for me.  He was tiny,and I liked the details in the show below.  It always amazes me how hairy flies are!

Still checking out the butterflies on my butterfly bush.  Yep, if you hardiness zone will support one of these bushes, planting one in your yard is sure to get you a few butterfly shots each summer!

Joey's team, the Lugnuts, had a baseball game last night.  Here the team is having the opening 'prayer'.  Joey and Donnie are both in the line-up.  Can you spot them?

What a sky it was at game time!

Here's Aiden on 3rd working to get the sliding player from the other team out.  The ball got to Aiden too ltae, was a bad throw, but he stopped it and got it back to the pitcher with no more runs scoring.

I used PhotoScape to combine a series of shots of Hunter and Cam pitching.  Kindof neat to see the progression of their pitch!

We had concession stand duty last night, and here's helper Johnny ready to serve up your snack!

Joey's team did go on to win.  I think the final score was 7-3.  Way to go Lugnuts!  That was the last regular season game with the tournament starting next week.

Timmy had the best time on concession stand duty this year -- he would holler at the people walking by like a carnival worker! Yours looks very similar to ours here!
