Can you tell what this is? I know, I know, it's really dark because it was taken through our bedroom window. It seems we can't go a summer without some little critter up around our house. This one was hiding behind the flower pot right next to our front door. I saw our kitty Lily lying there face to face with something. When I first looked I thought it might be a rabbit but that wasn't quite right. Well he sat there for hours and we couldn't get him to budge. Finally Dan took the hose and gave him a few squirts and he finally ran off. Have you figured it out? Hard to tell by the pic but it's a woodchuck and he was pretty good size. Neither Dan nor I wanted to try to chase him off by opening the front door as we thought he might run inside. And I didn't want to deal with a woodchuck inside my house!
Besides chasing off woodchucks, I've been trying my hand at flower arranging. I am not very good at it but I like to try and figure it out. This one I made inside of a teapot that I actually won in a Blog give-away.
And I made this one, using all wildflowers. I am taking a few to the fair that starts tomorrow.
Like I said, I'm not very good but it's something fun to try and maybe get a little better along the way.
So I'm off to do some more flower arranging.
One more thing. We were blazing hot yesterday with a heat index of 106 and dew points in the mid seventies which I think might be like tropical. My very pregnant daughter and I went shopping. It's not a good idea to take a cranky, pregnant young woman who can't fit into the cute junior clothing she is used to and thinks all the maternity clothes look like they were made for old ladies on a day when the heat index is 106. So I learned. Yikes!!
A storm came through last night and we are now in the low 80's and the dew point is only in the 50's. Wonderful summer weather!
That's the one thing here, we generally have gorgeous summers!
