Mellow Yellow Monday (for June 25,2012)



Sorry to be so late with my MYM post!

I didn't have anything to share until  I was out to my doctor's appointment this morning and happened to see this as we were driving back through town!

This is in front of a business. Their landscaping is very eye catching, with the plantings of Marigolds, in yellows and orange, used with the "Horse Fever Art Horse."

This horse is one of many of the horses from the  2 Horse Fever Art projects. The first one was 10 years ago and the 2nd. one concluded this spring.

The horses were all  sold at auction with proceeds benefiting various things around our town.
Many of the horses were bought by local businesses and remained in our town!

It's fun to ride around and  see the horses on display!

Mellow Yellow Monday - Ruby Tuesday2 - Midweek Blues - June 20, 2012


 Yellows-Reds and Blues

around our place this week!

 ~Mellow Yellows~

The Crepe Myrtles are in full bloom here now...and while out taking pictures of them I noticed (probably for the 1st.time) that these clumps of puffy and frilly blooms each have a touch of yellow at the centers! Here are the white ones and a dark pink one. We have a few other colors too!

The other potted flowers shown are a 'Dancing Lady Orchid,' and an annual called 'Kalanchoe.' 

~Some Ruby Reds for today~


 Moss Rose

~Midweek Blues~ 

...and a pretty BLUE flower! 
This is a 'Plumbago.' 

Father's Day-
 Charles with his 'kids'~
 Tammy, Chris and Tina.

...and, best of all, at the moment...our new baby boy,
 dressed in a blue plaid summer suit!

~Chris, my son, and his baby son, Drake~

  This is for "Pink Saturday"

( click on above links to find more posts of
"Pink Saturday" and "Camera Critters" )


My granddaughter is home for the weekend and yesterday she and her mom were up at our house to visit.

Alli is  a girl who loves to wear hats! Yesterday she was wearing a new one with a pretty, summery, pink, flower printed band!
Looks way cool to me!

Here is Alli (and Tina in one pic) enjoying time with our newest member to the family- our Baby Drake! He was a sleepy boy the whole time, but no one minded... It's fun to cuddle a sleeping baby!

Here is Alli with my favorite little 
"Camera Critter" ~ Emma Rose!

~this photo is 1952...Mom and Dad-my sister Joy and me~

Tomorrow-June 16th- was my dad's birthday.

George Washington Hodges

He's been gone for, oh, so many years now! Still, I think of you Daddy, and sometimes even see you in my dreams. We never forget the people we have loved in our lives-no matter how many years may pass!

Face Book post-Bird invasion at Junie's Place

June Kellum
(posted on FB)
Oh, my gosh!! For the 3rd time in recent weeks, tonight after dinner I discover a BIRD flying around in my house!!! It's one of those that sometime nest in chimneys... I assume..a small blackish/brownish bird! OK-It flew into the dining room and was perched on a picture...so I left the room to tell C. and, hopefully, get some help from him! By the time I got back it was gone...I can't find it!!!

Have had 2 encounters before and the first time was able to get the bird to fly out the door-The other time I found a DEAD bird entangled in my lace curtains in the living room!!!

I'm baffled because I had secured the screen of the fireplace and thought it couldn't happen again!!! BUT it has!!! :( WOE is me!!! What am I to do? :(
Some comments:
  •  Bev:
     Do you have a hungry cat?
  • June Kellum ‎:) that's an idea-My Lucy has been known to catch birds....but I wouldn't have the heart to do that... It's weird and I certainly don't feel up to dealing with this , after a long day of grocery shopping!!
  •   Sally:
    June Kellum If I only had a net I'd have some hope of capturing it....but I don't have a net!
     A cat will find it....just sayin'.
  • June Kellum Sally- "Yikes!" describes it well!!...to make things worse, C. is not doing well right now-(has been bad with his back trouble for weeks) so I can't expect help from him...he can barely walk. :( I'll do what I can... IF I even see it again tonight...and if I can't get it I will fall back on my mom's favorite prayer....The Serenity Prayer.
  • June Kellum Pat, I know....my cat is a good hunter too... but I hate to do that :(... I HATE this!
  • Pat:
    I know how you feel. I chased a bird around the office once with a broom because even though I opened the windows and the doors it insisted upon flying around inside the office. I hope you find the source of where it is getting in also. Remember it is just a bird...now if it were a snake I would pack my bags and find a hotel!

  • Brenda:
    I hope he/she is not making a nest. :-)
  • June Kellum Yes, Pat-just a bird....but remember Hitchcock's movie-'The Birds?" :)
  • June Kellum Brenda, I think it fell out of a nest, high up in the chimney!
  • June Kellum Well, I tacked sheets up on the 2 doorway openings to the living/dining rooms... so it will be confined to those rooms...I saw it again but lost sight of it again. (hoping it didn't fly out without me knowing-into the other rooms or up the stairs... :( Tomorrow we will have to take the screens off the windows (8 windows!!!!) and get it out-I hope!!! Just hope it's where I think it is...those 2 rooms! Meanwhile- I'm giving up for tonight! Dallas will be coming on soon! Gotta check that out- in spite of my bird invasion!!
    ...And -nothing has changed!!
    Any ideas?
     Junie Rose
