It was a quiet day in the woods, until Raleigh and Lotus got lost.
Carla Sonheim has a book and classes called “Imaginary Creatures”. They’re excellent for finding ways to create creatures from your imagination, or even real ones with personalities you wouldn’t normally thought of on your own.
It’s summer but that also means that it is baby bunny season. Be careful when you are mowing and keep an eye out for the little ones.
Here in Florida it is also baby lizard season and we have a bumper crop of anole babies this year. We have to watch where we walk because of all the tiny hatchlings. They get a little confused because they like to run to their plant but their plant isn’t always the best choice for escape.
We even have a green anole baby that was born a little over a month ago and Greenie is growing like a weed. Greenie has currently set up shop in the calla lily. Momma Greenie has been hanging out as well.
In the meantime, here is today’s bunny…
Arnie loves to tunnel through sugar cane fields, chewing the sugar cane stalks, which doesn’t make him popular with the sugar people.
Arnie started as a random shape in my morning pages.
I am working on my spring sketchbook again after a little hiatus. Yeah I know, it’s high summer. As I am typing this, a shelf cloud crawls across the sky covering us with a thunderstorm blanket. The palms look like tall thin ladies with their hair blowing behind them. Two sandhill cranes walked by my window with two fuzzy babies. I ran out to take their photo before they are gone. They don’t seem to mind the rain.
Back to the bunnies….These bunnies came from random blobs in my morning pages. I don’t always see bunnies in the blobs but I have a bunch that I can use to finish the sketchbook…though a stray bird or other animal may pop in.
Snowball spotted a juicy patch of dandelions from her favorite tanning rock, but Sandy the fox has her burrow over there. Decisions decisions.
