The above picture is the one that had the plane in it.
Within a few minutes the sky turned yet again; into grey clouds. I didn't take pictures of that.
The following picture is just a very very small look at something else that makes me smile almost every morning. Each day I sweep all the bark back into the planting areas and by evening the birds have made a mess again. This picture doesn't do justice to what it usually looks like once they get started! But, I do have to laugh at them cuz they just look so funny and busy kicking the bark all around looking for bugs.
The other close encounters with nature I had this week was, a baby snake in my garage. He was so tiny I could have step on him and squished him. He was really trying to hiss at me. I swept him out of the garage. I hate snakes, but he was little and one of the good kind. Then there was the lizard. I really don't like lizards either, he wanted in the garage too. Then there was a frog in the garage. I like frogs but I want them in the yard........ What is up with the garage??
