Out my small window lives a land full of mischief, surprise and beauty.
It’s a small neighborhood, made of a flower bed surrounded by river and creek rock, but the inhabitants of the mulchy area think they could ask for no better home.
I, the chief gardener, happened to look out one morning and see a few of the happenings. Young Little Lizard scurried around the rocks, no doubt looking for yummy bugs and delicious desserts. Nearby, Wasp hovered around; one always gets the impression he and his family are always busy and never rest then a moment.
Finally, my eyes caught sight of a twitchy, busy-bodied little bird. He hopped, jumped and cried out spontaneously. From rock to bush and back around he jumped … I feared for Little Lizard knowing twitchy, brown birds often like to have brunch around that time.
There is quite a world outside my bedroom window. A world of sunlight, life and mischievous little things. Of course the animals don’t mind being themselves when they think they are alone and unwatched. Maybe one day I’ll catch sight of a summer party happening between the daylilies and rocks.
I’ll have to keep watching.
Have you noticed any social activities in your lawn lately? Any parties or lazy times? I think animal friends can be the best, especially when young children have a chance of watching along.
