I took a walk around my yard yesterday in spite of the rain. I discovered that I missed the bloodroot blooming but found the Jack-in-the-pulpit before I stepped on it.

Mercury came to us mid winter, free of charge. His owner just wanted a good home for him. We love him.… Continue reading The Four Legged Critters
