I have mentioned in previous posts and in Private Messages about my oldest dog (Luci). She stopped eating and from what I could tell even drinking water, last weekend. She passed away on Thursday the 8th. I am relieved because she was miserable in her last days.
Before I speak of my photographs I wanted to share with you a photography contest initiated by @zuku of neoxian-city, called "Neoxian City Photo Challenge!". It is open to all stemians. For more detailed information check it out at:
In the above post you will also find a link to their Discord Server. Their Discord Server can be very active. Some members have been there for sometime and know each other. Do not let that deter you form joining. I have watched some new people adapt quite well to the group. Be sure and read their rules within the Welcome channel.
Now for my photographs. The above photograph is a sunflower from my patch. I bought a number a of varieties of sunflowers seeds this year (mice got into my stored seeds that I had collected). I have two rows approximately 10 meters long. Most are the type used for bouquets. Everyday I am finding new ones opening. I love all of different color variation but the above variety is one of my favorite. I have some new ones that I had never planted before coming so hope to have many more to share.
I have had a couple of me mentioned how they liked white roses. I was able to find one to share with you today:
This time of the year it is forest fire season...terrible name but it is the way of things. We do not have fires close by, yet the smoke does move in the area. I was able to capture a photo of the sun in the late afternoon of smokey skies and thought I would share it:
Last year I shared a photograph of a bridge in the Japanese Gardens at Manito Park. I took more photos this year of the same bridge to share:
Now to move to my last two flower photos for this post. These are quite colorful. I do not know the names of them, but really like them. I usually try to decide on what order to place my photographs in but found these tied. I like something unique for the final photo, but could not decide which should close out the photography portion of my post. They are both quite beautiful.
As always I hope you find at least one thing in my post that you enjoy. Some tell me that all the photos are great, and I appreciate that feedback. I also know some have their favorites. I trust you will have a great rest of your weekend.

I am getting a nice rate of return delegating to their cause, and I am paid daily. The maximum amount to pay when using the bid-bot is growing, albeit slowly. Growing is what counts because it is to help social programs.
Remember to use the tags for some of the new tokens I mentioned previously. Before using any of these or others as a tag be sure it fits the intent of the token. Neoxian and palnet are general topic sites to post. Creativecoin is for artistic type posts. Using these tags when posting on steemit can help you earn money on the other three platforms, as well as steemit. If you vote on someone's post who uses these tags you probably already having earnings in respective wallets. If you have not done so, then look into those wallets and see. With the price of Steem being low the extra earnings from these other tokens can help a lot. There are other tokens that can be used as well, but these are the ones I focus on at this time. Log into steem-engine.com for information on other potential tags. Some tokens may not get very far, so be cautious before you invest in any of them, including those I like and use.
