Simple Nature Appreciation

Luna moth on deck

Today’s a slow, easy day.  Not much going on.  Ron gave me a beautiful bouquet of lavender roses and white daisies for Mother’s Day.

I thought the luna moth in the photo was dead.  He stayed on the deck in the same position for a day and two nights.  Then, to my shock, he started moving around and flew away the second day.  Since they are nocturnal, I was puzzled as to why he chose daylight to fly away.

Rabbit in our back yard

The second photo is of our wild almost-pet rabbit.  He comes into the yard and munches tender greenery almost every evening.

He has no fear of us as long as we don’t try to approach him too closely.  Once in a while Sunny will see him and chase him.  But usually Sunny doesn’t notice him.

I’ve been having fun with the ukulele.  Am working on scales and simple songs, chords, and doing barre chord exercises to strengthen my hand.  I had forgotten how soothing and enjoyable playing music can be.  It’s adding a lot to my life already.  I dream of the day when I can play it well.

I’m also working on my tatted doily.  I pick it up for a while every night.  It’s also relaxing and I am enjoying not rushing to get it finished.

I got the bed covers in the camper washed yesterday.  Tomorrow I’ll scrub it and start getting it ready for the trip to Florida.
