A sweltering day in front of me, I knew getting out early would be in my best interest. Even though it was before 8:00 a.m. I still spent 15 minutes wandering around the yard trying to get my camera lens to un-fog itself. It is ‘un-fog’ or de-fog’? One of the great mysteries of life I’ll waste no time googling. I really must remember to set it outside about an hour before I want to leave, so it can un-fog itself. Anyway, off I went.
Here is what I saw. You remember Rachel? That adorable little calf who came home to us in a tool box late January?
My how she has grown!
Rachel says “Hi!”
I still haven’t figured out what the berries are but they are definitely the brightest thing in the forest right now.
I don’t know what made me walk out of my way to investigate this thistle but lo and behold, I found a lizard!
Cute, isn’t he?
Last week I saw a real, live snake. This week, just a skeleton.
And a deer skull, check out those front teeth!
Then another little lizard crossed my path and a frog convinced he was hidden behind a very thin pine needle. And some flowers and a feather and some clouds.
Someone lost a feather!
This tangle of vines is just the kind of place you would have found me in my youth, a perfect fairyland hide-out. Its a wonder I never had a snake bite.
Back thru the forest, homeward bound.
Unusual flower. I love it.
Only to be greeted by a very mad looking little bird!
Thanks for walking with me today friends, I hope you have a lovely week!
