I had a good time during my recent house sitting stint for a friend in Prescott, Arizona. It was about 20 degrees cooler there and I was very relaxed, listening to the music of the birds. It didn't rain but there were many afternoon clouds that swiftly passed by. Lots of wildflowers to cheer me along with Shelby the dog, who stayed by my side keeping me company. We had to check each night for Javelina before I could let her out--the back yard was full of them!!
I had lots of pictures before hubby accidentally deleted all of my photos during his attempt to snap a picture of a strange lizard. Drats! There were lots of bunnies, quails, and other birds, all feasting together on the fallen seeds from the bird feeder. I can't wait for another get-away!
I came home to find a second squirrel and a little cottontail bunny living in Turr Tull's home. In the 18 years that I have lived here, I have never had either type of mammal in my back yard before. A new occupant in Turr Tull's home is troubling...he still hasn't appeared at all. He's been late before, but came out at least once before his regular summer feedings.
