A Friday walk

Much to Bobby G's disappointment, I have not taken a picture of last night's full moon.  However, I did take some pics today...


As you can see, the first big news was that they've finally begun turning the former meadow into actual soccer fields....

...here, you see Scrappy's reaction.  Actually, I was hoping for him to wait...

...until he got right here.   The lower field, not surprisingly, is still going SQUISH underfoot (even Scrappy's feet), so I'm kinda thinking that IPFW might require a "please use Tide" waiver of mothers of kids who might play on these fields.   ANNNNyway, here's some of the fun we had in the forest green.





So good to see the flowers again. 


As soon as we hit the back road, we saw Mr. Ground Hog up ahead.  He went into cover, stuck his head out to see where we were, back and forth about five times...




...before finally heading out onto the road.  At this point, the pursuit was on...



...Scrappy joyously following as fast as his Daddy could run (IOW, no varmint was harmed in this production), settling for a thorough exam of the den entrances.



Mr. Butterfly...

Pretty tree...

Ravine is pretty wet...and here are some nice shots of the east end...





As we were coming up on the feeder trail, these two geese started blaring.  We thought at first it was in our honor...

..but it was actually two pairs, and pair number two didn't like one of pair number one.  (Yeah, you try to keep up with four charging screaming, flapping geese!)



Later on, the one was getting along fine with the other two...

...once they had chased the other one clear over the fence.  I wonder what he did to not only piss the others off, but earn the indifference of his mate?

  3. Funny, I was just talking to someone this morning about being tested by God. She says she feels like she needs to walk through it right now, but she's okay with it because once she can feel the pain she will feel the triumph He provides too.
