We are officially halfway through May today. Where has the time gone? It’s been 2 months since we’ve gone into some form of lockdown. Mother Nature, however, continues along her regular timeline, pandemic or not. On my creek path the apple blossoms are starting to fade. There are still quite a lot of them but they’re time is almost done.

However, as one flower moves on a new one comes in. I found what I think is Ground Ivy. I hope that’s what they’re called. My plant app assures me that I’m correct,  Whatever they are tiny and cute and purple.

I seem to be seeing more wildlife now. Today I’ve come across another rabbit. This one is a little smaller than the previous one but just as curious about what I’m doing. At least curious enough to not hop off too far as I take his/her photo.

I always love when I spot something other than the regular flowers that I tend to come across on my neighbourhood walks. I forget sometimes that there is wildlife all around us. When I come across an animal It’s a very good reminder to me that we share our space with other creatures and that we must respect them.
