I had heard about a small park not too far from my home that had a community vegetable garden and a butterfly garden so I thought I would stop by on the way home from Chesnut Park. As I got out of my car I saw two swallow tail kites cruising right over the park. I thought that was a good sign. One of the kites had what looked like a frog in his talons but he cruised over the trees before I could get a second look.
It was right before lunch and the sun was straight up and hot so there weren’t many butterflies around although the small garden was very pretty.
I saw a juvenile brown thrasher high up in a tree but he was gone in a flash.
A lot of yellow was blooming this morning. It was quiet and hot so I’m thinking I’ll come back when the weather cools off, maybe during fall migration.
Looks like a perfect log to take family pictures or take a break.
