Another photo from Evergreen Ponds in honor of the summer solstice and strawberry moon. The tadpoles, which used to be just dark shapes under the water, are starting to poke their noses out.
Another photo from Evergreen Ponds in honor of the summer solstice and strawberry moon. I saw this snowy egret flying over and landing in one pond, and then it moved to a smaller pond to do some fishing.
In honor of the summer solstice and strawberry moon, during the day today I am sharing photos of the abundant creatures of Evergreen Ponds. This turtle was scratching around in the grass–making dirt holes–maybe to lay some eggs?
This morning, I walked to Evergreen Ponds, where life abounds. In honor of the summer solstice and strawberry moon, I want to share photos throughout today.
Every time I walk to the ponds at Evergreen Cemetery there is some new life unfolding. Today it was these four ducklings swimming with their mother near the edges of the pond, almost out of sight. But I also saw turtles sunning themselves on a log or a rock, frogs laying in wait for breakfast, and some goslings who are now adolescents still under the watchful eyes of their parents.
I don’t have enough time for this particular walk every day, but when I do take the time, my heart is enlightened by such beauty and vitality. Thank you!
