What a summer!

It’s been a long, crappy summer around here. Hope yours has been better. Health issues have kept us both down and the garden is a mess. Sure wish I had some pretty flowers to share with you today. I do however have some shots of a little visitor we had recently. We got home late the other night and Daniel headed out back for something and came across this little porcupine.

He was very shy and didn’t like that we were noticing him. He’s about the size of a large cat – very small for a porcupine but the wildlife folks think he is old enough to care for himself so no need to do a rescue. He was around for two evenings and hasn’t shown himself since. We had seen dead ones along the roads out here before but this is the first live one we’ve seen. So fun!
