And He said, my presence shall go with thee and I will give thee rest...
Exodus 33:14
-----------------------------------------------------
As I posed with the hollyhocks, waiting for the 10 second self timer to go off, the mosquitoes were having fun biting ... One bit hard in the face and caught me off guard... The look of pain is not fake:) We have had a very rainy summer so far and with rain comes a fresh surplus of mosquitoes .

I am dedicating this page in memory of my youngest first cousin, Harold Dean on my late father's side of the family... Harold Dean, (his nickname was Biz,) passed away yesterday morning from his two year battle with cancer. May he rest in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with his family who will miss him dearly...

    P.S. I used to hate hollyhocks when I was a kid because of the bumblebees that it drew.

    Thank you everyone for your comments....Yes, it does attract bees and

    mosquitoes, Donald...I would love to see some butterflies but we seem to

    have a shortage of them..
