I must remember to warn Ms. Jemima Puddle-duck that Mr. Fox was seen trotting across my driveway into the woods this morning. She only knows him as the bushy-tailed gentleman, but I can assure you that he is no gentleman! It was a sight to behold, and unfortunately, I could not get to my camera quick enough.
Earlier this week Poetry the Calico Cat alerted us to the fact that a relative of Johnny Town-mouse was hiding under our bathroom cabinet. He was scared stiff and would not come out to save his life. I do not think he likes adventure park rides. We treated him to the Wild Wind Tunnel (otherwise known as the shop vacuum), and was he glad to tumble out into the yard at the end of that ride. He scooted off to safer hidey holes.
As for Peter Rabbit, he has been out in my garden today inspecting all the newly emerging plants....
Here are a few that he found....
|Chives and Lambs Ears|
|Sedum and Snow-in-Summer|
|Strawberries flowering along the walk|
|Peonies peeping up through the False Aster|
|Daffodils that have yet to open|
|Lily of the Valley marching into the walkway|
|Virburnum slowly opening|
|Wild Violets springing up in the lawn and gravel walkway|
|New leaves on the trees being admired by Mr. Cardinal|
Until then, cheerio, pip-pip, tally-ho....
