|"Hey, what cha doin? I'm just coming out to get some sunshine, so please move a side."|
|This little guy was sunning himself on one of our logs. I have no idea what this is. I looked up Salamanders of Indiana and couldn't find anything that looked like him. Then I looked up Newts and he looked even less like one of them. Anyone know??|
OK speaking of our log pile. We were starting to get a bit concerned that our logs were attracting mice, as Cooper lets us know they are in there. So Art decided to clean up the mess some and Abbie and Bill gave us a tarp to cover up the wood to keep it dry. Of course with Art moving the wood he stirred up a mouse, and Cooper was on the war path. He was a tad bit angry. See...
|He was barking at Art to get him to move a little faster. I believe what he was trying to say was, "move that log for me he went under there."|
|"OK, fine I'll move it myself!"|
|Cooper tried another approach, pounce from the top. It didn't work either.|
|She wasn't one bit fazed by all the commotion. She was smart and stayed in her chair and the warm sunshine.|
|Cooper finally admitted defeat and went after this green bug, that appeared injured, that was crawling on our patio mat. This was as close as he got to it though, I guess the mouse was safer than he thought.|
|"Ready, set, go!"|
|Right into Uncle Dan's arm.|
|See her Elmo doll? She would let him go first and then she would go. So cute!!!|
|After a while Aunt Hannah's arms hurt so she and Meredith raced. It was so cute.|
|I'm not sure who was having more fun Meredith or Aunt Hannah!|
|She is giving kisses now. Meredith that is.... So sweet :)|
Before I came down with the flu I decided to go on the hunt for wildlife. I found some!
|Now if he doesn't make you smile nothing will. Is he cute or what??? Chubby little cheeks, and he just sat there and posed wasn't one bit afraid of me.|
And then look what I saw.......
|"I hear you have been looking for me?"|
|"Well here I am all proud and beautiful. Just like last year."|
I don't know what was on the ground but these two butterflies were sitting side by side enjoying something.
I am thrilled with my plant I bought. Every day there are butterflies all around it. Isn't this guy pretty. I am not going to try and identify it, as I have looked and it takes forever to find their picture. I am just enjoying their beauty. I need to find a book on them.
I did some engagement pictures for our daughter while they were here as they had their first date walking a trail in a state park. I thought I would post 2 of my favorites.
|I love the bark on the Pine Tree here in the park so they stood in front of this large one.|
Hope you enjoyed all the nature pictures. Next time I do a post I hope our home and myself are both back to 100%. So from Hardin Ridge in Hoosier National Forest....
Best Wishes and take care everyone.
