Moms Words: another capture of the baby raccoon, who has the mama that is blind. As of today (24th June) they are still around, as hubby saw them both twice, but I missed them today.
captured from the open front window while it and its mama were at the water bath/fountain on the front patio again.
Moms words: here’s the blind Mama raccoon again, drinking at our water fountain on the front patio, early February. She has been visiting us each morning for several weeks, but we didn’t see her here today.
I loves moms garden. She was an avid gardener her whole life and this is how I remember her place. So beautiful.. buzzing with bees , butterfly’s everywhere.. raccoons, squirrels, hummingbirds.
Moms words: this is a photo of our front patio area, taken many years ago, before we had our Labs and before the “online addiction” began and arthritis set in : ) and was really into gardening, especially lots of annuals, as can be seen here.
After the arrival of the Labs, we now just plant mainly perennials which seem to survive anything, plus the dogs are older and don’t wander into the garden area anymore. But we focus a lot on planter tubs and hanging baskets now anyway.
Moms words: baby yellow finch male (goldfinch) puffball, after taking a dip in the bathing area on our front patio. He’s preparing to go in for another bathing session.
mom was an avid gardener. She had such a way with plants. Such a green thumb! I definitely did not inherit this trait though I wish I did.
Moms comment: purple heliotrope flowers blooming on a tall plant in a pot on our patio. It has a beautiful scent, like vanilla.
This would be another one I’d love to enlarge and frame for my wall ❤️
Moms comment: digitally altered effects to my gooseneck loosestrife photo –
flowers from our garden
Another hummingbird beauty of Moms.
Moms coments: Hummingbird, rufous female, sitting right on the top of the droplets from the fountain. The end of her beak can be seen, beyond her wing, in the original, but not sure if it will show up on this compressed version.
