Today it’s just raining regular rain. But yesterday a squirrel fell from the sky! Right as I stepped out onto my deck, a squirrel fell from somewhere above my roof to the cement below my deck. All four of its little legs flailed wildly as it tried to grab onto the cedar branches. It… Continue reading It’s Raining Squirrels!

It’s finally raining here! I know the focus isn’t great on this second photo but, to me, it’s still beautiful. After more than seventy… Continue reading Close-Up
