Garden Pals

Summer in Maine is such a quick burst-if you blink, it passes you by. This year I have really tried to notice all of summer's little happenings. This morning my husband called Ava and I out to our re-vamped "south side" garden to meet a few new pals who had stopped by for a drink.

What a treat to see these little creatures. They have the best outfits, with the perfect accessories, little furry balls on the tops of their antennae, and silky black stockings on their legs and the most sumptuous fur coats on their tiny bodies. They fluttered all around our heads on their way to each flower. Ava was enchanted.
And I was too.
