Occasionally Clyde and I are asked what we do around here when no one is around. I thought I’d share my evening from this past Monday. After I closed the salesroom, I grabbed my camera and headed out to take a few photographs of the plants and flowers that are out right now.
Except this one. Neither dog felt like sitting on a thistle! I can’t say as I blame them. Thanks to all those thorns, I was able to capture this spotted cucumber beetle (I think that’s what the bug is anyways) on the flower.
I turned around and noticed that Polly was keeping an eye on us too. She was sitting on a tree that fell down a few years ago right at the edge of the fields. Out of the way, but still close enough to monitor the action. In this photo she had spied a deer that was up the hill from us. I realized it was there just after taking Polly’s photo, but I wasn’t fast enough to grab a photo of the doe before she headed into the woods.
Maggie was tuckered out by this time so we headed back home for a glass of wine. Well, I didn’t get many plant photos, but the pet shots were fun! So that’s what I do around here on a quiet Monday evening. What do you do on your weekday evenings?
