Pancakes and Pollinators

Family night at the zoo was filled with
fun and education with
Pancakes and Pollinators.

Long tables were set up showing the importance of

Plants That Pollinators Love

Two of my favorites: Lantana and Lavender.


Kids had fun having their face painted and playing games.
Two beautiful tiger sisters and one handsome brother snake.

Screech Owl

Some of the Animal Ambassadors were out and about.
This is an Eastern Screech Owl.
He looks like a tiny tree!
Great camouflage.

Screech Owl

Most of the Animal Ambassadors 
have been injured in some way
and can not be released into the wild.
The zoo gives these animals a home and uses them for 
educational purposes.

In some ways, this gentleman is an Animal Ambassador, too.
He is one of the official photographers at the zoo.
We were laughing taking pictures of each other, taking pictures of each other! 

Can't leave out a mention of the menu.
Fruit, yogurt, scrambled eggs, pancakes, bacon, potatoes,
chicken nuggets and
shrimp and grits.

Little Things

It's The Little Things like this:



That make things like this ... bearable!

Neighborhood Action

It really hasn't been too bad.
They don't work on the weekend.
Closing off one lane of traffic has made crossing the street easier.
(Always look on the bright side.)
Rebuilding the street will take awhile. 


I have my pond cleaned once a year.
I try to schedule the cleaning before it gets too hot and humid.
Cody does a fine job.


This year, in addition to my six gold fish,
Cody found eight crawfish.
We have no idea where they came from.
We blame everything "abnormal" on the waters of Hurricane Harvey.

Water Lily

The waterlily isn't the only bloom in the garden.


I save the amaryllis I get at Christmas and put them in the garden.
With a little luck,
a year later,
they bloom again.

Azaleas In Bloom

Wishing YOU well and much joy!
