|A squirrel searching for buried treasure :(|
|A raccoon doing a little redecorating for me :(|
|Someone's taken a stroll through my plant :(|
|The Frog Prince, left broken and crown-less :(|
|A mystery insect that chomps at the stems of my sunflower seedlings :(|
A reminder to me that my garden and I are only a small part of a much larger ecosystem.

This salmon-pink poppy reminds me of a Georgia O'Keefe painting.
She painted flowers the same way that I see (and photograph) them.
"When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment.
I want to give that world to someone else.
Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower.
I want them to see it whether they want to or not."

Do you also hurry, half-dressed and barefoot, into the garden,
and exclaiming of their dearness,
fill your arms with the white and pink flowers
with their honeyed heaviness, their lush trembling,
to be wild and perfect for a moment, before they are
From the poem: Peonies

This baby Bluejay contemplates his next move from the top of our lawn chair.
The world must seem like such a big, scary place...
He courageously takes a jump into the unknown and ends up on the pathway next, a small, cloaked figure standing in the rain.
Mom keeps her eye on the two villains lurking at the patio-door window.
Just one of the many reasons I'm happy I keep my cats in the house!
