I'm very happy to post today. The camera, which has been tempermental-to-completely -not-working decided to oblige yesterday when I was called outside to see something under the apple tree. I grabbed the camera automatically, and ran out the back door carefully, expecting the opossum.
Last year the porcupine was eating the windfall apples there and this year, with the very few apples even on the tree (remember this late storm that killed the apple blossoms?) an opossum was taking what he could (I think about three)
So I was surprised when I hear a "No need to be quiet" as I opened the door and I found this:
He was quite a distance from the pond. He may have come from the neighbour's pond. I shot off several photos and checked to see that the camera was indeed working!
But this Corner View is about "grass". Our grass is parched as you can see in this draught. I'm glad Mr. Photogenic here saved this from being just one yellow crunchy grass picture.
We have had much heat and very little rain. For us it's just a yellow lawn but the farmers around here have been forced to feed their cattle hay, something that doesn't usually happen until November! The weather is very unpredictable this year.
So we followed the turtle down to our pond. He seemed to know the way and made pretty good time for a turtle. The grass there is dry but is more the customary colour, as it is mostly in shade.
(Bonus turtle eyeball photo just because it's very cool!)
