GARDEN OF TEARS
This lady was crying in a garden I visited today. It is a carved "Fencepost" stone, drilled for water to flow over her head & body, eventually creating her features, her tears, her tresses & dresses. I also had the oportunity to take a few shots of some animals there. Adam, an eight year old, has a collection of reptiles that he keeps. He is very good at taking excellent care of them & is constantly studying their needs & habits. I met him a few years ago at my place when I noticed him hanging around my field. He had seen a large rattler & was waiting to see if he could have permission to come on the property. We quickly became friends & I now know the whole family. He brought out a large lizard while I was there today giving his mom some advice on a pond. She went in & brought out a cornish game hen, which the lizard devoured. I would never have believed it could have eaten that much, even with the hen having been put through a blender first.
Then it was a new snake that came out. The lizard meanwhile was hanging out on the lawn. He leaves it outdoors for hours at a time. Anyway the snake a beautifull one is over on Planet Earth along with another one, a little ringneck racer. The maid found that one in the house. Very very small, it could coil up on a quarter. Earlier today, a friend came by. Wally, a huge dog I hadn`t seen in a year & a half almost, was thrilled to see me & started howling when he remembered who I was.
So enjoy the things I offer up today & hopefully it will make you smile, or spend some time, you may otherwise have wasted, on worries that are beyond anyone`s control.
