Not to mention box turtles, skinks, fireflies, and the groundhogs, who appeared briefly at the beginning of the weekend, then spent the rest of the time judiciously absent from all the activity.
Friday night we got an amazing light show, with lightning in the clouds, but no rain. Saturday the stars came out, and we stood in the yard, being nibbled on by mosquitoes, and admired the show. All in all, a very successful weekend.
I didn't get to see as much of my brother - he's been sick, so he delayed his trip (he's in DC this week for business) until Saturday evening, but he did get to see a bit of the woods and the house, and was suitably approving. I had a lovely time cooking real dinners (I have a kitchen!) and playing hostess, and talking with my mother.
Now, I'm tired, and mad busy, so I'll post a couple of photos this evening, and hopefully get back into the swing of posting tomorrow.
