Willy Nilly Friday 5, Sky Watch Friday, Floral Friday Fotos, and Weekend Reflections
and on Saturday, Saturday's Critters

1. Full Moon Rising (Sky Watch Friday)
Lee County, Mississippi, USA, June 26 2018
The moon was rising in the east just as the setting sun cast a final glow on the clouds.

It is times like this that I think of getting a more sophisticated camera for better photos, but the weight of the larger cameras stops me from buying one. (I use a Canon PowerShot SX520 HS)

2. Good Food!
Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, June 20, 2018
Santa Fe Tilapia at O'Charley's Restaurant: grilled tilapia filet (with pico de gallo) on a bed of rice pilaf with steamed broccoli. A bit spicy, but eating their wonderful home-made rolls will help cool down your mouth!

And for dessert - Apple Pie! (Wednesday's special at O'Charley's is a free piece of pie).

3. Phlox (Floral Friday Fotos)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 27, 2018
Phlox is a genus of 67 species found mostly in North America. I am not sure which one I have here in my garden. Phlox flowers may be light blue, violet, red, pink, or white. Butterflies enjoy their nectar. They are also a popular food source for groundhogs, rabbits, and deer.

4. A Gardener's Friend (Saturday's Critters)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 19, 2018
Toads will eat many insects and other pests found in your garden. They prefer a moist environment where they can find insects, earthworms, slugs, and snails. To make Toads feel at home in your garden, provide a source of water, do not use insecticides or pesticides, and leave an area of leaf litter with small sticks and other debris to give them a place to hibernate in the Winter. You will be glad you did!

5. After the Rain (Weekend Reflections)
Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 21, 2018
Delicious rain water!
Have a wonderful weekend!

    ...we received some much needed rain.
    Thanks Lea for stopping by, wishing you a fabulous weekend.

  3. Lea, you and I have the same make of camera and probably for the same reason, we don't upgrade, the weight of a newer one with a better zoom. Mine has been a very faithful companion on many a picture taking jaunt. Have a great weekend.

  4. Love the sky shot and the beautiful moon. Apple pie is one of my favorites.
    Happy Friday, enjoy your day and weekend!

  5. Those first two photos are glorious.

  6. We ate at an O'Charley's in Mississippi in January 2016. The waitress there gave us the best tip on where to go on the Gulf - Orange Beach. She was right too.

  7. Beautiful moon captures, and I like that big fat toad!! Enjoy your weekend.

  8. Your flowers made me realize I've never tried to plant phlox. I looked up pictures of them just now, and I think I'd like to try. Maybe next year.
    Beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing.
