Summer is in full bloom. Endless hours of sunshine and balmy temperatures provide the perfect antidote for winter woes. My animals and I are fully connected again; basking in our mutual affection and respect for each other. Circadian rhythm during the summer lifts the mood and intensifies gratitude for all that I have. Life....is good.
This water bug spends the winter submerged under pond ice, unaffected by the cold.
George, the garter snake has made an appearance every summer for three years. This year he is residing near the garden.
A handsome toad named Fatty and his buddy Fatty Too, have preyed on moths at the front of the barn for at least 5 years. During the winter I miss them and wonder how close by they are 'sleeping'.
|The Green Dragon is a relative of the Jack in the Pulpit. I successfully transplanted it from my grandmother's garden many years ago. Annually and dutifully it returns to prompt happy memories from my past.
