Photo a Week - Reflections
Now before you think I'm dotty this morning (well you may be right about that, but that's another post....), I'm using a different take on "reflections", okay? I have been "reflecting" upon the joy we took in watching the antics last summer of a baby rabbit whose mother gave birth to him in a hole underneath one of our storage sheds and hoping we'd have a similar delight this year. Well, no baby rabbits as of yet, but yesterday evening this young fellow appeared at the back of the yard, near the old rabbit hole, and this morning he came close to the back steps as the baby last year used to do frequently. Then he hopped off around behind the deck, just as the little one did. So I am assuming that this is our baby rabbit with a year's growth on him. He's still not fully grown, but I feel certain it's the same bunny. I am so happy to see him!
And here is a new visitor...or I should say a visitor not usually seen so close to my window. I put this cute little bird bath on the deck railing a month or so ago, put some water in it and waited to see the birds coming to drink. Nothing......
So I decided to try some seed in it, and attracted only squirrels for awhile. But this fellow showed up a couple of days ago and although I don't usually like to see them in the yard I had to admire his beauty and was happy to get this shot before he flew away.
