This poor box turtle illustrates why we stay in our vehicle most of the time. UGH... I felt so sorry for it while the mosquitoes were trying to suck the poor critter dry. Obviously they don't mind if an animal is cold or warm blooded. The mosquitoes will take any blood.
On our way home today we were able to make a rescue. This poor Eastern Kingbird was obviously in distress. It was sitting gasping in the middle of a lane of traffic. We stopped and my Dearly Beloved picked it up and set it into a shrubby tree beside the road. We are hopeful that it wasn't critically injured and would recover after a few minutes of R&R.
Back in Vincennes this week I made a run to the Post Office. This was the first time I looked on the opposite side of the building where the TINY TREASURE of a garden is located. What a sight awaited me. This side of the house is as beautiful and small as the other side. Once again I saw no one tending this little treasure. I just wanted to share the rest of the garden with you.
