He has been hanging out in our yard this week. An odd little friend.
He has stayed by the tree for days, but today I looked out my kitchen window and he was on the move. The kids were still asleep so I grabbed my camera to capture his journey for them. I chuckled as an airplane flew overhead and Snappy craned his neck to see the source of the sound.
They got within three feet of him but he stayed out...even daring a glance at the girls as they giggled.
Grace teetered on the garden wall, bent over and peering at the little creature who continued his journey. We wondered where he was heading...and surmised he must be going home, to the creek behind the houses over there. We hoped he would cross the street safely.
We turned our attention to the garden and it's beauty in the early morning. The Japanese maple with leaves unfolding in red and sculpture,
Another Japanese maple, a bit further along in it's show,
Spring is a solid month early around here, and I could not be happier!
