may…

by grace on June 20, 2017

as the first day of summer approaches, i try to find time to sit down and write.  here’s all i have for the month of may after our trip to las vegas.

a spectacular display of irises in bloom.  i want that many irises.  maybe next year – deer don’t eat them, so i want to plant a lot.

here’s a wide shot of a duck and a goose nesting in flower pots on somebody’s docks.  it’s not so easy to spot them, so i tried to get a close-up of each.

the duck…

…and the goose.  i’d never seen that before.  we actually did have some eggs in a planter on our dock, but they had an unfortunate ending.  but i never saw a duck nesting on the eggs, which was odd.

i like this photo of les because it looks like he’s sitting on top of the water.

the sky was so pretty this night.

i don’t think i’ve ever seen a snake this close in the water.

amy was mowing one day and happened to stop the mower, and looked down to see this tiny little turtle.  very fortuitous that she stopped!  although the mower might have just run right over the top of the little guy. she carried him out of the yard to safety down at the ravine.  i’m sure one of her dogs would have done something with it.  i can’t imagine one of them killing it, but they probably would have crushed him.

after kevin tilled a new garden and put a fence around it, lester found it to be the perfect place to relax.

near the end of may, kevin spotted this ground hog!  never seen one before.

 

he was making a beeline for the garage, and kevin went outside and pushed the opener to scare him out, and sure enough, he scurried away.

and that’s all the wildlife for may.

much more in june.

ok then,

mrs. tuesday evening hughes.
