Random Five Friday

It’s been another busy week here at the “wildlife refuge”.

1.) While my niece, Donna, was visiting last week, she, Marshall and I were standing out in front of our garage, talking one morning.  We heard a sound, seeming to come from inside the garage. We discovered that “New Swan” was tapping on the side door with his beak. Motor Man has teased me for a long time, saying that he expects the swan to ring the door bell. Guess that will be next.

2.) It’s been hot here recently.  Really hot.  So hot that bunnies have resorted to digging little cool-off spots in the dirt. Love his little stretched-out hind legs.

3.) We rarely see this many waterfowl gathered at one time.  This was during evening’s golden hour earlier this week.

4.) When I shared this next photo on my Facebook page, my caption was: “Liriope: it’s what’s for dinner”.

(But, yes,  he’s adorable….) And a friend commented that, because of his “careful” pruning, the liriope will come back even thicker next year.

5.) Bluebirds may possibly be my favorite of all birds. They’re so quick, it’s rare for me to get a picture of one. I’m happy this one posed for a minute.

Bonus: “wild child”.  Well, she had just attacked the table leg, so she qualifies.
