I love walking with my head up in the clouds - sometimes you get amazing views that way...
Close up of bee approaching the Crepe Myrtle
Gizzy pulling towards the ducks and the Canada Goose.
Here's another ducky by the side of the road
Here comes the big white Bulldog named Buddy, walking his daddy
See Gizzy? That's a big, big doggy!
I'm enjoying the blooming Crepe Myrtles while Gizzy investigates
I simply adore its pale pink color
I love that image of the goose in the weeds with the reflection of the trees in the water.
If you look close, you can see the Great White Egret on the peninsula.
The Anhinga is an excellent fisherman, but very elusive, so observing him catch a fish is an extra treat for me.
I spy a pretty blue dragonfly as we walk over the bridge
And a tiny green lizard
(see just his little head poking out?)
Last year I brought home some seeds from a vine growing by the lake because I loved its little red blossoms - I don't know what it is, but now it's climbing all over everything out front by my apartment. I'm sure soon the gardeners will rip it out, but for now I enjoy seeing it climb up and all around my bedroom window. It's very delicate and cheerful looking.
The Ginger lily is also blooming near my front porch and its scent is intoxicating. I can't resist taking a big whiff every time I walk past it.
I also wanted to share some good news about the stray cats. I learned that the city spays or neuters one feral cat per household once a month for FREE. They'll provide the trap and also include a rabies vaccine, so I put my name down for getting the trap delivered so that I can start getting those eight cats spayed and neutered starting on the 23rd of this month.
Also, I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow for my sore/stiff (left) wrist and forearm. I have no idea what it is, but I think it needs to be x-rayed. Whatever it is, I hope it's not serious enough to interfere with my crocheting. It doesn't hurt, but it feels stiff and sore and swollen, like maybe a sprain.
Lastly, here is a picture of the big, beautiful fern one of my neighbors gave me. She didn't want to bother with it anymore and I think it likes it out on my front porch with the rest of my plants ;-)
