Wildlife at the Arboretum

When I think of arboretums, I think of flowers and other kinds of gardens. We saw a Japanese garden, hosta woodland garden, fern wooded garden, herbs, vegetable, and fruit gardens, shrub gardens, and tree gardens, ponds, and many different flower gardens, waterfalls, ponds, and bubblers, lakes, marshy swamps, and more.

But we also managed to catch geese (which I didn’t download, will have to do it tonight), chipmunks, squirrels, a DRAGONFLY! (I’ve been trying to capture one my whole trip), a wild turkey! (that was a surprise), a squirrel, a monarch butterfly on an orange coneflower, and koi.

We walked 5 miles at the zoo the day before yesterday, and 4 miles up and down hills in the heat and humidity yesterday at the arboretum. So we’ve been getting a good workout every day.

I autographed books at 3 Barnes and Nobles.

Oh, and I managed to get to 17,000 words on the new book!

Off to breakfast! Have a wonderfully wild day!

Spring has Sprung

Male blue dasher dragonfly juvenile, yellow flower that came back–yay! I didn’t pull it up, thinking it was a weed! And flowers on one of the shrubs.

Mated cardinals. “See if she’s still there.”

“Yep, still taking pictures. Don’t turn around.”

Paparazzi can be such a pain.

Off to work on more of Flight of the White Wolf!

Have a great one!!!

Storms and 19″ of Rain!

Storm Total Rainfall and Flood Reports

storms between night (640x427)I thought I had left a light on outside because all of a sudden, it was really light out at 8:30 pm, and then it stormed again.

More thunderstorms possible this afternoon. But in the meantime, sunny skies and look what I captured when I took the puppies out for a walk? A baby dragonfly.

Oh, oh, just saw daddy cardinal with TWO baby cardinals feeding them! I wondered if there were two of them. But they were on the patio and by the time I noticed them, I missed getting a picture of all 3 of them together. More later.

Okay, off to write. Have a super great day!!!
