You’d think the garden pariah would be the dreaded emerald ash borer or Japanese beetle. Sadly, it’s not the destructive insects that the garden inhabitants seem to want to vote off the island.
Nature lover. Animal rescuer. Bird feeder. Habitat builder.
The woman wanting to take pictures of flowers.
I’m grossly unappreciated—no, unwanted. Yesterday between rainstorms, I went out to take photos of wet flowers. Here’s the list of animals that ran, jumped, swam, or flew away before I even got remotely close to them. These are just the ones I saw….
- At least 10 frogs
- King Fisher (who I didn’t even see until he left in a huff)
- Garter Snake
On the positive side, when I stepped in an ants’ nest, they didn’t run away. They crawled in my shoes.
Hmmm. Maybe I should stick with being an ogre. Maybe I could change my name to Fiona.
