Friends Of The Family, Groovy Fauna Edition

At the risk of sounding hippy dippy I’ll share with you that morning & evening I like to go outside into the garden with a beverage and commune with nature.

I enjoy the aloneness of it. Tossing my thoughts aside. Being in the moment. Enjoying the colors of the flora.  Trippy.

 But this Spring I’ve come to realize that often when I’m outside doing my Earth Mother thing, I am not alone.  There be more than flora, there be fauna, too.

And this fauna doesn’t seem to give a flying fig through a donut hole that I’m out there too.  You’d think that they would care, wouldn’t ‘ya?

But they don’t seem to groove on the idea that this is my garden– and not theirs.  They just keep on keeping on like they belong out there.  Far out man.  😉

  1. Groovy pictures, Bean! Maybe these creatures are thinking that you have invaded their space:) But it’s cool that you are all sharing this beautiful nature in peace!

    1. I’m sure that you’re right, Beth. I’m on their turf. But the thing is: I don’t see any of them contributing to the mortgage payment, so whose land is this really? 😉

  2. All you need now is the tunes from the vintage Snow White playing softly in the background there.
    Maybe they critters didn’t read the fine print at closing and thought they were contributing by trimming plants, and fertilizing lawn?

  3. Today must be the day. Your post is the third on morning and evening nature walks complete with critters. I do it too. Maybe it’s also the time of year. Babies everywhere!

      1. With our outdoor (sometimes) cat old and toothless (and mostly indoor) the chipmunks are having a field day. They love the pond and the bushes to hide. They are so quick (but not as quick as Jake was in his heyday) and fun to watch.

        1. We have a few chipmunks, but we also have a couple of large snakes that slither up here from the creek. I’m seeing fewer chipmunks as the weeks pass. I don’t know for sure, but… a correlation perhaps?

  4. I love your fauna – and your photographs of them. We don’t get many deer out here but I love the critters we do have. I hear there are bears in the area but I have never seen one.

    1. Zazzy, thank you. I’m sure there are more critters around here, but bears are rare. We get coyotes & foxes some years, but you won’t find me trying to take their pics!

  5. Great photos (especially the one of the deer). There’s nothing lovelier than having a cup of tea in the morning and watching all of wildlife out in the garden. Makes one feel like Snow White at times!

  6. As long as everyone refrains from daisy nibbling and poop piling, and stays outside at all times, all of God’s creatures are welcome. What’s the odds of THAT happening?

    1. Zen-Den, yes, I know. These critters are lovely in photos, but the realities are less lovely. Bothersome, even. BUT THAT’S NOT THE THEME OF MY POST, says the hippy dippy Earth Mother.
