Another Unexpected Visitor

Just sharing a nice glass of wine on the front porch with my Arranger when we were visited by this cuddly little critter…about four inches long.


I suspect it was checking out “the good life” in suburbia for the first time.

Beware of hungry hawks in the neighborhood!

    Aww, I just want to pick it up and put it somewhere safe.


  6. Sure, they look cute. Just wait until they eat your phlox or girdle you apple tree.
