The corn is forming tassles

A lone Gladiola among the catnip

Gladiolas are blooming next to the sunflowers

Smaller sunflowers are now opening behind the rustic fence line

The Crape Myrtle is in full bloom

All of these flowers are from the garden: Roses, Crape Myrtle, Summer Phlox, Purple Coneflowers, etc...

This strange looking beetle with big 'eyes' surprised us on our deck. When we came near it, it made a loud clicking sound with its body I guess as a defense mechanism, in addition to the 'eyes', as a way to say 'keep your distance!'
Just researched it and discovered that it is named the Click Beetle

Me amongst the glories.
I am wearing black because I am mourning the death of our country.
Dig the Tom Cruise glasses :)
