Never-Ending Action

Relaxing together in the yard the other day, Moon and I were the only ones who remained motionless.

At first, it appeared to be a feathery, multi-toned, brown blob....almost like a duster my son gave me...LOL!  Moon didn't hear it shuffling through the seeds at the base of the feeders.  Her hearing has gotten worse.  

Then it was the adult rabbit on the upper section of the yard.

Did you spot it near the far corner of the garage?

Don't feel bad...Moon didn't see it either.  Her eyes aren't what they used to be.

Then it was the Hummingbirds zipping by stopping long enough to hit each and every bloom on the nearby Columbine planted on the stonewall.  

 And then it was the snake who had found it's own "quiet corner" taking advantage of quiet time to digest it's large meal.

Now you see it, right?

 just seeing, saying and sharing...

Never Ending Action


You do have a collection of wildlife, JP, and I have to admit that snakes are not my favorite creatures. I was wondering what large meal the one you showed had just eaten.
Lots of activity in your quiet corner! That's such a good close up of the snake! I can't go near them although I know they do a good job in the food chain.
Your columbines are lovely. We used to have quite a few in the garden..volunteers...then one year they were all gone.
Is that a turkey in your first few photos? I can be so dumb.

I am so lucky that my next door neighbor at the lake has hummingbird feeders (and has had for years) so that gives me the glory without the work...not that I could be reliable coming and going as I do. But I have an abundance of bright flowers and they are gravitating over to me. Yay!

I've never seen a snake in my gardens. What sort of snake is this that you found? Couldn't tell the size either. I don't like anything that startles me... toads, frogs and turtles. On our beach we have turtles the size of trash can lids, sunning themselves. They're mating and burying eggs. Our upcoming activity will probably mess up those eggs but there is always next spring. Don't they live like 1000 years?

Hello, you have lots of wildlife in your yard. The turkey is cool, love the bunny, the snake not so much. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

I have to say that I had no idea what that first picture was - then it became clear. Nice snake!

JP, You have your own zoo there. :):) I come across toads here, I leave them to eat bugs, but I have never even found a snake here. My daughter finds them in her gardens. You have a good eye for spotting things too. My daughter Kathy can spot birds and name them ...she's a birder. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
Wow, that's quite a lot of wildlife in your backyard!

All the best Jan
