Spring is here but today it was gray once again. So what is a person to do while one is still waiting for green and blooming things? Go to the way-back-files for hope of things to come. Here is one from a summer past.
Not a very catchy post title but the truth none the less.I have taken a few shots of the Hoverfly in the past but never knew what they were exactly. I found them almost exclusively flying around or feeding of flowers. It turns out the Hoverfly feeds on nectar, is a pollinator and an important player in controlling the aphids. They also can be found on every continent except Antarctica. Or simply put , I am a fly not a bee, though a very important fly indeed!
Well I had a very productive and enjoyable three days. I still have tons to do on the kitchen remodel and need two new storm doors and a new side door. Yesterday I went up to Indiana and spent time with some of my family. I picked up some boxes of my folks to go through at their old house. After that I went to a viewing of the mother of one of my good friends. As I stood there talking to his wife I realized where the table was for the flowers was where my Pops body was less than a year ago. After the viewing I headed down to one of my favorite places, the shores of the mighty Ohio River in y old home town. Leaving there I headed home and started the process of deciding what to keep and what to get rid in those boxes from my folks old house. This morning I had a photo shoot down by the lake followed by removing the CV axle on our car, reinstalling the motors on our wood pellet stove and firing it up for the first time this Autumn, supper with some great friends and back home to hopefully slowing down and enjoy the last hours of my birthday.
