Buffy's Big Adventure

We went to the Mayhaw Pond, Miz Willene and Buffy and I. The young mule across the fence in Mr. James' pasture came to see what we were doing. Buffy commenced to bark, running along the fence.

When she got to a hole in the fence big enough that she could slip through, she gave chase. Sudden Buffy was being chased herself by something bigger and faster, with thundering hooves! She circled quickly back to the hole she'd gone through. She spent the rest of the time we were there barking, but carefully on her side of the fence.

Text and pics are from in the hot, humid depths of Southwest Georgia USA where mosquitos have suddenly appeared and the humidity is higher than the temperature, mornings. New daylilies and true lilies are appearing daily in the garden.

There was a light shower of rain this afternoon. We're trimming trees and bushes. Daddy Mack always said that low hanging limbs made him feel smothered. High shade is ideal for growing plants. They don't want to feel smothered, either.

I bet she was really surprised when that donkey chased her! I would love to have seen that!

We have 'skeeters here too, now. Bobby is making noises about turning on the AC. I am not ready yet.

Her adventure reminds me of the children's books, Angus and the Ducks I read to the kids when they were little. Good writing. Our humidity isn't too bad, yet, but soon, oh soon.

Also, no daylilies, but not long for those either. I see scapes.~~Dee
