We went to the St. Louis Zoo Sunday. It was a beautiful day and I wanted to see the new Sea Lion Arena before the shows end Labor Day weekend. I can't believe I'm the only one that thought a shark was an inappropriate decoration since they are Sea Lions' #1 predator. Maybe they do that just to remind the Sea Lions how lucky they are to be in a shark-free environment!
We finally got some rain and some relief from the heat this week. It was too late for most of my garden, tho. This morning I tilled up about half of it and replanted green beans. Fingers crossed. I have a yard full of trees, bushes and flowers. I'm worried that I might have lost my burning bush, but the mimosa tree has done well. Usually I have hummingbirds flitting around it, but I hadn't seen many this year. I was so delighted to go out one evening last week and see four of them buzzing and fighting. This one stopped to take a break. Maybe things are about to get back to normal!
