While out in one of the garden areas we discovered one of my in-laws cats had some sort of critter. I thought it was a mole and since they've been wreaking havoc in the gardens I chose to turn away and let nature eliminate a pest. Then the critter broke free started hopping around. Not a mole. A bunny!! A baby bunny. So we shooed the kitty off and picked up the terrified bunny. (Sorry about the fuzzy pictures but I didn't want to use the flash and scare the bunny. As if being nearly killed by a cat and held by humans wasn't scary enough!!)

Son #6 isn't so sure about this.

Goodbye little bunny!
Grow and be happy!
The evil predator kitty!
A relative perhaps.
A nuch bigger bunny with a robin friend nearby.
A Red Eared Slider like our Squirtle--only bigger.
This turtle was about 6 or 7 inches long so not completely full grown yet.
There is a pond about 1/4 of a mile from our place.
We've seen this guy around a couple of times.
I'm watching you!!
Cabbage White Butterfly
The butterfly who lays the eggs that become cabbage worms.
This butterfly fluttered around my brassicas all day.
I will have to stay vigilant to keep my veggies from total infestation!!
Fledgling robin we found hopping around on the back of our property.
We could hear mommy or daddy close by.
This is our front garden with the tomatoes staked and caged.
The peppers are in front and still quite small.
I've been looking around and it seems like these plants
look pretty much the same size as everyone else's.
Which isn't too bad really.
But check out our tomato plants in our side garden!!
They are huge!!
They were planted two weeks earlier than the ones
in the front garden.
The cages here are the same size as the ones in the front garden.
Here's Daughter #4 standing next to our tallest tomato plant.
The cages are 6 ft. tall.
Daughter #4 is 5'5" tall.
Do you see how big my cucumber plants are
along the bottom sides of the cages?
They are already loaded with blooms. :-)
The sunflowers that I planted in front of the cages
are sprouting and will hopefully grow big and tall.
Hoping everyone has a wonderful and blessed new week!!!
