We’ve had lots of activity in our backyard these first two weeks of July. Bees and Butterflies are frequent visitors to the butterfly garden.
Ruby Throated Hummingbirds and Northern Cardinals are two of the birds we see every summer around our back yard. Snow Egrets are frequent summer visitors to the salt water creek. Roseate Spoonbills first started coming to our area a few years ago. I’ve seen them two years in a row now so hopefully they will keep returning each summer.

Mona Liza over at The Lowe’s RV Adventures recently asked me if I could name my favorite place. I didn’t have to think very hard to come up with an answer. My favorite place in the world is right here at home in coastal Georgia near Savannah. So this summer we’ve been enjoying a wonderful summer in our home state of Georgia.
The highlight of our summer was having the grandkids come to visit. Going to the beach, going for boat rides, visiting museums, making homemade ice cream, and catching blue crabs were just a few of the things we got to enjoy with them this summer.
We also enjoyed getting together with our friends and neighbors. We celebrated numerous birthdays, watched Fourth of July fireworks, and shared many meals and laughs.
One of the things I love most about where we live is the natural beauty all around us. I never get tired of all the birds and other wildlife we see each day. Throw in a few summer thunderstorms, some beautiful sunsets and a few rainbows and you have a summer full of great days.
I created a Mesh Gallery with a few highlights of the summer using Mesh. I hope you like it.
Every day this summer was a good day. This is my contribution to the WordPress Mesh Photo Challenge: Today Was a Good Day.
