Bunny Bookends Welcome July

The Fourth of July weekend is rapidly approaching, and I was delighted on my walk last evening to see so many new baby bunnies along the edge of the marsh.

And their Mums, with ever watchful eyes, close by…

The first tiger lilies had blossomed, a reminder that the heat of July is not far behind.

New lawn chairs have popped up, too, as Cape residents prepare for their holiday guests who’ll soon be arriving.

And as I passed each dirt path I got my camera ready in the hopes of spotting a lone fox taking advantage, like me, of the evening quiet.

It takes my breath away. Every time.

And I mean, everyone!

After lingering at the outlook for a while, a crow reminded me in no uncertain terms that it was time to head for home.

I had time just for one more tiger lily…

And was thrilled to find some daisies who already had their summer guests.

And as I turned for home…

THERE he was! One more tiny bunny who almost seemed to say to me, “Hold onto your hats, here comes July!”

Thank you for coming along with me, ’til next time!
