#580: 30 Days of Thanks #7,8,9,10

I am ever thankful but not always
at my computer.
These past few days I’ve been thankful for:
2.5 inches long, found in soil as we were potting 
up the tender perennials.

Same tender perennials, in this case, 
dahlias, salvia, and prairie-sun rudbeckia.
A last bit of garden sunshine before the winter sets in.

Also a last frog!
We found this peeper clinging to the bottom of a bag.
We needed the bag so we transferred him
 to the leaf litter out front.
We’ll be hearing from him in the spring.
( I know this is off topic, but did you ever think what it must
be like to be a tadpole, swimming around, then to grow arms and legs
and go out on land and whoa! A whole new world.
I think that’s what it’s going to be like to go home to Jesus,
suddenly, sunshine.)

Ring-necked Pheasant. The first I’ve seen in years.
Brought to the island by hunters years and years ago,
and they’re still here.
As am I.
So thankful to live close to nature.
