It hasn't been long since I last posted, yet already, we have several unexpected things. 🙂 My daughter and I did a dump run and, as I was about to drive back into the garage, I saw movement inside. A whole bunch of butterflies (there were more inside) on the dirt floor. I didn't want … Continue reading Unexpected
It's been a busy few days of out-and-abouting, but today I hope to get actual manual labour done in the yard. While also being careful of my broken toe, of course. *grumble* Yesterday, my older daughter and I got glamour shots of the kittens, to use in our attempts to adopt them out. We got … Continue reading Looking good
A photo from early June. The beaks of redwing blackbirds have the most amazing shape! They are so long and pointy. Until we caught this one with his mouth open, though, I didn't realize their beaks had a shape that makes me think of the nibs of calligraphy pens.
A couple of photos my daughter got, of an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail.
This is another from the beginning of June. There's Bobby, getting all... comfortable... on the stone cross. So funny, seeing his elbows sticking out like that. You can't see it in the photo, but one of his back legs is just dangling down. 😀 Taking a closer took at this photo, I can see that … Continue reading Critter of the Day: comfortable
On my way home from town this morning, I saw the bison were usually close to the road, so I just had to stop and get pictures! To the left of the above photo, you can just see one of this year's babies, lying in the grass. The larger bison lying near it would be … Continue reading Bonus Critters: big shaggy babies
It got really windy yesterday evening, so I decided to see if anything was being affected. Yes, I know - I'm supposed to stay off my feet. After a while, though, certain areas of the anatomy start going numb, and I just needed to move around! Aside from one of the garage doors being blown … Continue reading Critter of the Day: napping
While investigating the sounds of the visiting toms asserting their dominance this morning, another noise caught my attention. A deep, continuous buzzing noise. This is the linden tree, looking slightly paler than usual. That is because the upper branches are blooming, and there are so many flowers, you can see them more than the leaves. … Continue reading More growing things
A couple of photos of our racoon visitors from the beginning of June. My husband was the only one up early enough to get these! Our previous photos posted where taken with his phone. These were taken using the DSLR we keep set up in our living room. They are so round and fluffy looking! … Continue reading Critter(s) of the Day: roly poly
Today, my husband finally had his appointment in at the heart clinic in the city. It was in the afternoon, but they say to come in 45 minutes early. We figured out when we would have to leave to make it with plenty of time, then left a half hour earlier than that, for time … Continue reading Time to put my feet up
