Something Different In My Backyard

We have a new visitor in the form of Dillon the Armadillo. We couldn’t get too close as these creatures can jump three to four feet in the air if frightened, so it’s not a great photo taken with hubby’s iPhone.

The nine-banded armadillo is quite small and mostly nocturnal, so it was surprising to see him during the day. Now we know who is responsible for digging holes in the lawn. There’s always something new to see in nature if one is on the lookout.

 

One-liner Wednesday: First Water Lily Flower

This morning when I went out to feed my three goldfish, this is what I saw. Out of the dark depths, a beautiful flower had risen during the night to greet the day.

Every day, nature has more miracles to show us and often to astound us.

Wishing you all a wonder-filled Wednesday.

It’s A beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood.

“If you truly love Nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh

Every morning, hubby and I go for a three mile walk around our community. We are so blessed with the weather here in Florida and as long as we get out whilst it’s still quite cool, it’s really pleasant. We see a few walkers  and cyclists on our route and always smile and wave, occasionally exchanging a few encouraging words, from the required distance of course. Whilst it’s good to see some of our human neighbours, the beauty of nature is the best thing about our walks.

This lovely garden has a beautiful and fragrant Frangipani in bloom.

Danny and Daisy weren’t taking any chances and crossed the road to maintain social distancing.

Robbie rabbit turned his back on me, just in case.

Sammy  was also not in the mood for socialising.

The Great Egret just ignored me as he snootily strutted his stuff.

Almost home and time for breakfast, as we passed this lovely Angel Trumpet vine.

I so look forward to our daily walks. As John Muir noted, “In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.”  Wishing you all a peaceful and safe weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Six Word Saturday: Tommy Turtle Keeps A Low Profile

These turtles can live up to forty years, so Tommy is taking precautions and not socialising for a while.

One-liner Wednesday: What a Gorgeous Display

How could any lady Great Egret resist such a courting display?

Marsha The Marsh Hare In March

Sweet and calm Marsha the Marsh Hare, really doesn’t look as ‘Mad as a March Hare’. Of course, Alice saw her March Hare ‘Through The Looking Glass’,  not through her bathroom window, so there’s the difference.

Wishing you all a calm and peaceful Tuesday.
