Spotty Sunday: Mountain spots
It was a gorgeous day here at our Mountain house. Mom went for a run, and I got to go outside in the backyard. Mom is trying to let our backyard go "back to nature" and look like the open space behind our fense. So we have these stepping stones that look like spots through the backyard.
Mom usually doesn't like to take the flashy box when she runs cause she doesn't like to stop (I don't understand this, as there are so many things to stop and sniff!), but I begged her to so I could have some pictures. Her pictures remined me of spotty things.
This is the open space Mom ran through. The bushes are spotty throughout the open space.
These are the ponds near our house. Mom says they are "constructed wetlands" meaning they use reclaimed water. The birds are spotty on the water (oh I'd love to get to those birds!). It got to almost 60 degrees here today, but it isn't always this nice the time of year. Last year Mom said it looked like this (I wasn't here yet).....
Here the pond is spotty with little icebergs!
This pond has spotty vegetation all around it, but no birds.
This is the open space right behind our house. Mom and I see this hawk hunting through the glass all the time. Mom was able to walk almost right up to it with her flashy box!
All in all, a great day!
