|the pied piper of ducks|
Thursday, September 23, 2010
Our temporary "home" has brought us many new friends. A gaggle of Hackberry Emperor butterflies dance around my shoulders when I walk along the wooded path. Golden Garden Spiders spin webs on the junipers and over our camper and trailer. One brave little squirrel is stalking me today while I write and Sage and Folsom nap. My new scorpion friend hung around the sink in the women's bathhouse for two days before I remembered to tell David. He liberated the poor guy last night. Aside from very curious wood ants, there really are not a lot of pesky pests. The ants do not sting, unlike their saucy cousins the fire ants. So, really, they are just minor annoyances. And, of course, the ducks love Sage.
