Sweet, Cute and really Ugly ~ Outdoor Wednesday



Ahhhhhh so sweet



Ahhh isn't he's cute hanging out on my Turks Turban



Ah! UGLY



It doesn't get any uglier than an armadillo ... these guys can live for over 20 years ... That's a long time to be ugly ...



This summer was so hot we had 52 nights with low temperatures of 75 degrees or higher so needless to say I didn't spend much time outside weeding and boy oh boy are my flowerbeds a mess.. I felt plum sorry for the county guys that had to pick up my mess Monday morning and I hate to say it but there's more to come. It's Outdoor Wednesday so come join me over at A Southern Daydreamers along with Miss Susan and lots of other great bloggers to see what everyone is sharing today .. I see lots of pumpkins ..
Hugs from Savannah ya'll, Cherry

  1. Oh, I can relate... it is so hard to get out there in the heat of summer and tend the garden. I tell myself, every year at about this time, that next summer I will do better... just so I don't have to see the sad state of my planting areas this time of year.

  3. Hi Cherry,

    Love the photos, especially the blue bird! I actually think armadillos are pretty cool looking. They look like a prehistoric creature.

  4. I enjoyed visiting with you and thank you for stopping by...I love the Bluebird.
    However did you spot the Gecko?
    I didn't get out and visit much today because I was trying to change my blog template...for some reason I can't get it to change the post title to something other than white.

  5. Cute/ugly ... armadillos are unique. Did you ever read A Prayer for Owen Meany (John Irving)? That's when I fell in love with them ... however, I don't have them roaming about in my garden! Autumn joy, dear Cherry :)

  11. You reminded me how much we have to put out at the curb.
    Don't think I'd like to see anything as big as an armadillo in my yard.
