Another nature adventure. This time I found the turtle instead of the rabbit. This cute little one was roaming around on the gravel in our dog run. Scout, our fearless dog, was of course afraid of the turtle....
We put the little guy on the trail to a better location as our dog run isn't really a place I'd want to reside if I was a turtle. Not sure how the little critter got in the fenced in area to start with as he was having somewhat of a difficult time getting back out of the fence.

Of course it didn't help to have Scout barking madly at him and me trying to take pics at the same time. I probably would have been rather confused on my exit strategy if all this was going on around ME! Anyway, I enjoyed the little guy. He may not be speedy, but he is very cute.

Rabbit, rabbit

Out to get the mail again and ran across this critter munching on the grass. So cute. She didn't hang around long though once she saw me and my camera.

Remember to say "rabbit, rabbit" on the first of each month for good luck and positive vibes all month long. I don't know where I first heard this or when we started it, but it's fun anyway.

Rabbit, rabbit!!

Butterfly Bush

Our neighbor has several butterfly bushes and they are awesome. I was out this morning to get the mail and saw all the butterflies having their 'breakfast'. There was one very large, beautiful golden colored butterfly-really pretty. So I rushed inside for the camera. Of course when I returned it has left. But I still had fun watching these guys and took a few shots.

These are wonderful plants. Pretty and good for the earth at the same time. Great!!

I'm glad our neighbor has provided us with such splendor to enjoy.
