Lucy caught yet another opossum.  This one was smart(ish) and played dead.  It’s pretty convincing looking.

I Wasn’t Done

Our newest foster dog, Lulu. is giving Glen “the look” because he quit petting her.  I don’t think she was ready for him to be done.

Monarch Butterfly

This gorgeous butterfly was flitting around our front yard yesterday.  Took me a while to get good pictures because it was so hot and humid my camera fogged up the second I took it outside.

Queen Anne’s Lace

This beautiful “weed” is Queen Anne’s Lace and is also known as wild carrot.  Like a carrot, when the plant is young, the root can be eaten.  However, care should be taken because it bears a strong resemblance to poison hemlock, which is also in the carrot family and is deadly when eaten.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
