Wildlife Wednesday

I don’t see bunnies too often throughout the day in my backyard, since they are more active at dawn and dusk. I’m not sure if this bunny saw me sitting at the patio table right next to him/her, or if he just didn’t care I was there. It was great to witness him eating a weed! If only they would eat more weeds and less plants I actually paid for, like the tulips starting to come up in spring and the coneflowers I’m trying to get to spread throughout the flower gardens.

Wildlife Wednesday

Lots of birdwatching and squirrel shenanigans in my backyard these days!


I’ve never seen squirrels wrestling in a tree, especially over a birdfeeder!


And I’ve never seen a squirrel climb up a sunflower stalk, with a fence around that particular flower garden to keep critters out.

Hope you’re having a good hump day and finding ways to get outside and enjoy some Fall sunshine and fresh air!

Wildlife Wednesday

There is a warm glow outside on this mid-September day.

After a walk around the block for a lunch time break, I paused to notice the wildlife in my backyard. I saw Chippy climbing around the wood pile and arbor vitae trees, the cardinal family, the chickadee gang and a woodpecker competing for time at the bird feeder.

It was a nice distraction from the demands of the day and a comforting moment of peace.

Hope you are having a good hump day and finding ways to take care of yourself!

Pages From My Sketchbook

I can’t believe August is almost over, which means summer is winding down around here. I illustrated a new theme for my sketchbook page of September doodles – the woods – since we will be hiking more again. I’m excited to fill it with doodles of things and creatures you might find in the woods.
