Where did June go?

June started in Dallas. I drove up to visit friends. Shown here are Mary Ellen and Gail exiting Maryam's condo. Gail is doing the royal wave.

We headed over to the Dallas Arboretum and saw lots of pretty things like this walk thru a crepe myrtle canopy.

...and this fearless bunny that let me walk right up to take this picture.

We tried to beat the heat by choosing some nice shady paths.

We finally found the frog pond. Four giant frogs spray water onto a brass sphere.

Mary Ellen ran thru the water while Gail and I snapped photos of the event.

Back home I visited Marie and Jerry's yard and snapped this little butterfly. Jerry probably knows what kind it is. I however, do not. I guess I need to attend more Austin Butterfly Forum meetings.

I finally got a big tank for holding rainwater. 305 gallons!

The morning glories spang to life in June and are still producing although they're a bit limp in the middle of the day.

I did a little yard work and turned this parched spot into an area for draining overflowing rainwater from the barrel. I put in some drought resistant plants like big muhly and black-eyed susans.

And then the rest of June went like this:
