Small Things

 Barbara Donovan did a mini fundraiser to aid the victims of the Pulse nightmare.  I was fortunate enough to be able to buy this little whisky cup.  Usually I become aware of fundraisers and sales after the fact!

Needless to say Barbara's imagery really speaks to me.  I love the way fox is loving his tail.  For years we had a red fox living in our woods.  We would see him on the driveway.  I can only describe his attitude as disdainful!  From the way he flaunted his tail I would say that he was just as proud and in love with it as this little guy.


I finally managed to get a good photo of Mrs. Hummingbird.  I had to wait for the right light and lean out the window to get it.  Toes crossed that I can get some shots of the babies when they hatch!


The caterpillars are pupating so the poop rain is slowing down.  I am going to try to get the pool open this week.  Proge has begun work on clearing the fish pond.

Aloysius aka Helpercat thinks summer means it is time to bite my feet until I remove my sandals and give him belly rubs.  If I slow down he gives me a nip to get the action going stronger.

It's a gray, humid day.  I'm going to transplant some petunias that reseeded themselves from last year.  I think there are snapdragons coming too.  Even though I don't like gray skies very much, it's excellent for gardening!

Enjoy the days ahead and as always, thanks for stopping by............*s*

    Love that cute fox face too.
    As for your hummingbird Mama on its nest, that is an incredible photo!
    Thanks so much for the additional information about the lions at the entrance of New York Public Library!

    1. Hi Mariette...Now we have to put up with the kitties going nuts over moths at the window screens. We are very hopeful that the oaks will releaf a bit.
      I love that the Library Lions have names. I wonder if kids are still allowed to sit on them.
      Have a great weekend.
