Pics from this Week

Dance, my Mountain Cur, found a box turtle and brought it to the yard. She has done this several times over the years.

She seems rather pleased with herself.
Milkweed is the only plant that the Monarch caterpillars will eat so it is vital to their survival. I let patches of it grow wherever I can here on my 66 acres. Sadly it's been several years since I've seen Monarch's on my Milkweed.  It doesn't go to waste however for it is used by many different bees and insects.

Bee Balm is another favorite plant of mine. The Bumble Bees are feeding heavily on it now.
This morning I come upon this turtle. It's only the second one I've seen this summer in the
I got out fishing this week for only the second time this summer because of the continuous rains that have kept the streams high and muddy.

In a couple of hours I only caught a half dozen smallmouth with this chunky foot long smallie the nicest one.
This hot wet summer will make those cool fall days afield with Emma and Thicket all the more special.
As always thanks for looking.
