We went to my friend Roy's house last night to enjoy an evening of good food and swimming. They claimed they didn't have any flowers in the yard, but I did find an interesting hibiscus and it was a very calm evening. I also got a great picture of their dog Hazel.
Earlier in the day I caught some interesting pictures around lunchtime. One was a Swallowtail Butterfly that was visiting our zinnias. I had been worried that the butterflies were disappearing, but perhaps now it is time. I hope to get more pictures of them as even their body pattern is interesting. The other pictures were some banana leaves in a pot outside the our lunchtime restaurant.
Tonight, although I was tired, I went out into the front yard and took pictures of some flowers that have recently bloomed. The zinnias continue to bloom and a new, unidentified flower has made its appearance.
