We had baby Canadian Geese in the neighborhood for the first time this year. They are such devoted parents!
We always have lots of baby rabbits in the spring.
This tiny fellow is a shrew. I welcome them in my garden since they eat slugs and lots of insects. He was trying to cross the street, so I put him on my business card and moved him into the grass on the other side.
This frog is about the size of the end of my thumb. It has been taking naps on a shady window ledge outside my breakfast nook.
This big mama left the lake to find a place to lay her eggs. She is the largest snapping turtle I have ever seen. I carefully put my glasses near her so you could judge how big she is. They move much faster than you might think.
I don’t know the names of the plants above or below, but they make me smile when I look at them.
At last! It is now warm enough to put plants on my screened porch.
When life’s burdens get too heavy, I always seek out nature to soothe my soul. I hope that these pictures gave you a few moments of calm and peace.
“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the greatest intention.” ~Kahlil Gibran.
