Life has been less than wild at the Powers household. First Daniel and then I caught summer colds. Not fun! But luckily, they came on fast and were gone just as quickly. Still, the energy level was rather low for a while...
The weather has been glorious though and we spent much time outside. It is unheard of in mid-June for us to be able to turn the air conditioning off and open the windows. But that's exactly what's been happening here this year.
So, here are some beautiful animals that have been visiting our small back yard and our neighborhood. Normally, we don't get to see the green herons. They like to roost way up in the pine trees and usually the view is blocked by the oak tree canopy in our garden. But the one in the photos above posed beautifully for us for a while!
This little blue jay baby came to visit as well. He sat on our porch unafraid.
That was a few days ago. By now, the baby is much bigger and the whole family comes to our bird feeder and entertains us several times a day.
Last night, Daniel spotted this very cute baby raccoon trying to get comfortable on our neighbor's swing set.
I just love their little faces!!
In my next post, I'll have some garden news and after that I'll also have some art to share again. I've been working on a drawing that is taking a good bit of time.
I hope you all had a great weekend and wish you a good start into this summer solstice week!
