Wildlife Wednesday – Female Baby 5 Line Skink

There’s a few of these wee beneficial babies using our back porch as a playground. They’re so charming and so very hard to get a photo of because they’re so fast.
I’m glad this wee-one stopped for a moment while close to a nail-head. The nail-head might help to give some idea of the small size of this female baby skink.

Wishing you all a charming Wednesday!

Wildbird Wednesday: Yellow GoldFinches

Another reason I love zinnias is they attract Yellow Goldfinches or as we like to call them, Canary birds.
Yellow Goldfinches are fun bits of sunshine playing in the zinnia patch.

Wishing you all sunshine and fun.

 

edited in 7-13-2019: I was talking to my husband about the yellow finches and he casually mentioned to me that they’re called ‘Goldfinches’ . So, I thought I should update this post with the right name in case someone might want to research them further. 😉

Unique Lovely Lily & issue update

I was taking photos in my Lily patch and came across this lovely 2 color lily. It’s so unique and fun. It made me smile. I don’t recall ever seeing it bloom before.
A couple years ago we bought several different varieties of lilies for the front yard. There’s quite a bit of shade in our front yard, but we figured the lilies would do okay. Unfortunately, we were wrong, they didn’t do well and barely grew or bloomed.
Last year, We made a lily patch in the back yard, in an area of full sun, and transplanted the front yard lilies to it. All the lilies took off growing and have thrived wonderfully.

My Blog Issue Update:
I can surf blogs with other browsers, fairly well now, but not for posting and commenting.
I’m using a Chrome browser for posting today. I want to see if it helps my issues before I contact WP support.
So far, so good…
I’m going to try and visit and comment using Chrome.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to visit and do a bit of catching up with you all.
Wish me luck 🙂

Wishing you all a beautiful week free of issues.

6-30-2019 Still having issues

I’m still having issues. I’ve tried 2 different computers,  a couple different devices and a few different browsers and still my blogging issues persist. I’m tired of the slow loading, if it loads at all. Trying to write a blog or comment is an adventure in itself…

I’m planning on contacting WordPress this coming week, when I have free time to focus on working to hopefully resolve the issues.

Thankfully, I’ve a scheduled post for the 4th that I made before my troubles started. Hopefully, it’ll post.

Meanwhile, I’m typing this post on my KindleFire. I can’t post images nor blog and comment comfortably on it, So I don’t even try. Making this post has taken me longer than I like.

I’ll be back blogging when I can.

Wishing you all trouble free blogging.

 

 

 


 

6-27-2019 Computer issue update

I don’t think it’s my laptop on the verge of crashing… (although it could happen) I backed up all my files just to be safe.
I thought it strange that my issues mostly happened when I was trying to blog. It finally occurred to me to try a different browser.
So, I’m pretty sure that there’s conflict between Microsoft Edge browser and WordPress.
I switched browser and am able to blog at the moment, though it’s slower going than it should be.

Wishing you all a issue-free rest of the week!
