Backyard Menagerie

We enjoy being outside in the early, early morning and later in the evening. The heat is already getting unbearable during the day, but at those specific times it is quite pleasurable.

It is astonishing to see the diversity of all the wildlife we actually have around, in and behind our backyard. Several rabbits come for a visit, but I don't expect seeing them much. They discovered the vegetable garden next door. We better warn the neighbors.

A frog family took residence under the patio and either return home in the mornings or head out in the evenings. Lizards seem to reside there too and I suspect even under our outdoor chimney.

Our dog does not mess with them, but she has been acting like a cat lately. She licks her paws and washes her face like cats do. Over the past several days, she has exterminated an entire family of mice. We constantly find their remainders next to our patio.

Yeah, I will take our best friend to the vet as soon as she starts purring. Grin.

The squirrels usually stay closer to the woods behind the yard, but this one was a little bit more adventurous. In spite of us being there, he dared to cross from the frontyard to the back and did not even bother to make a run for it. We caught him... on camera. :-)

In the evenings the lightning bugs present a gorgeous spectacle. Maybe one day I will take pictures of them or capture them on video. There is a whole lot more going on in our backyard. I will keep my eyes peeled and our camera close.

Even though it may not seem like it, but these are all blessings God gave us to enjoy. Let's try not to overlook them and be thankful for all the marvellous works He has, is and will be doing in our lives and all around us!

Psalm 66:1
Make a joyful shout to God, all the earth!
