D and I finally saw the fox kits across the river. I hope Mama Fox teaches them to stay clear of the busy roadway as they get older and more adventurous. Since she has her paws full, we snapped a couple Mother's day pictures for her, too.
Tonight, I cut up some red norland seed potatoes for my dad and I to plant on Thursday. I walked along our creek bank, casing a place to slip in a few packets of sunflower seeds and discovered a lovely spotted frog snoozing under a rock when I pulled some dandelions. I carried it to the front porch, laughing and squealing as it wriggled, trying to escape. I showed it to J when he returned from baseball practice, and returned it to its creekside habitat. It promptly jumped across the creek beyond my reach, but I managed to get a quick snapshot of it.
Earlier, when I dropped J off at practice, captured (with camera) a small rabbit sampling Spring greens along the roadside.
Spotted an oriole high overhead this weekend, and D spotted an oriole's nest under construction, also.
