Late Summer at Chez MonkeyPosh -part 2

This is the second installment of some late Summer shots around my house. The weather has been odd lately. Usually we get our bad storms in the Spring, but this year most of the severe weather has come really late. We have had a lot of storms lately and just this past week, we have lost electricity twice.This is a picture from my front porch as a very strong storm rolled in. The colors and shapes of the clouds were beautiful and haunting.We have had a cute little family of barn swallows in our yard this summer too. They are so little, and active, and so cute. This is their brood. This is a nest atop a column on our front porch. The babies are so cute, but every time we spend any time on our porch, the Mama bird swoops and chirps and carries on trying to protect her babies. This is a great shot of the Mama feeding her babies. She is out getting food all day long. Those babies eat a lot, and when they are hungry--they are loud.
I love this photo of our pond, because to me it looks like it could have been taken in a bayou in Southern Lousiana. This is a gorgeous Blue Heron that hangs out in our pond and catches fish from that fallen branch. On this particular day that black bird was vehemently trying to run the Heron off. It was entertaining to watch.Here is our Blue Heron in all his (or her) glory. Majestic.Since this post has totally gone to the birds (chortle chortle), here is a picture of a hawk that landed on our back porch. I had never seen one up close, and they are huge. This picture was caught as it was flying away. It's wingspan was about 4 feet wide.This is a tomato that my husband grew. After the scare with the tomatos, he just decided to grow his own, because to my husband, summer is not summer without fresh, homemade salsa. I am not a big tomato fan, but I do think this photo is pretty.Gorgeous hibiscus bud. I love this one. is Finley enjoying the lazy dog days of summer. He likes to kick back with the remote and watch some Project Runway.
Here is hoping all of you are enjoying late summer.
Oh and I must add that Jemma Kidd is debuting a line of cosmetics at Target. I am so excited about this as I love Jemma and have blogged about her before. I look forward to trying her stuff out and reporting soon.

Love it! Your place looks like a little slice of heaven! All you need is a lawn chair and a stack of good books!
