Wild turkeys preening and parading their feathers, shy momma deer with their white-dotted babies growing bigger every day, frogs, turtles, squirrels, dragonflies, hummingbirds, warblers, robins, crows, woodpeckers, chipmunks, grasshoppers, spiders, crickets, eagles, hawks, to name a few, and even this guy crossing under my car a few days ago. The picture is a bit blurred, but he really is a snail, slugging along at a snails pace! About half an hour after I took this picture, I went out to check on where the snail was, and he was gone into the grass beside my house. Invisible to me!
But, the days are slow in late July, for we truly are deep in summer. Everything is lush and green, with no indication of rot, or shrivel. The only thing that is changed is now it's dark at 8:30 instead of 9:00 or later. And mornings are not as bright at 5 a.m.; in fact, they're downright dark! The seasons have their seasons, and so it goes.
It's the dog days. Time to rest up!
