North of Bahia Vista

Wagler construction is getting ready to build a new house on Gardenia Street.

Blood Mobile was parked at Hostetler's trailer court this morning.

Tonight I went looking for him and found him on the gravel at Miller's Trailer Court. I threw him a few peanuts and here he is munching on one. Now that his heart has soften toward me, I plan to bring him apple slices or carrots.

Vera is taking a brisk walk tonight. I don't know how far she walks but she takes her energy snacks with her. This does her good.

The sun also sets north of Bahia Vista.

The squirrels needed their peanuts.

I went scouting the neighborhood north of Bahia Vista looking for this wayward rabbit. Tonight he was alone. His wild cousin was nowhere in sight. He looks fat, full and fluffy.

Looking for bedtime snacks in the shallow water of the Phillippi Creek.

The Red Dragon Fly sucking on nectar.

The perfect ending of a beautiful evening.

Plant Life

Every vegetation is lush green and grows like weeds. I was sitting down by the creek and inhaled the sweet perfume of these Trumpet Vines.

How many different kinds of wildlife can live in one Oak tree?

This vine with heart shaped leaves are Air Potatoes. They are non-native invasive plants and have been put on the Noxious Weed list in 1999. A couple of years ago local volunteers went through the woods at the Pinecraft Park and got rid of about 500 pounds of vines. The vines behind my house have free range.

Pioneer Bus Leaves

 Ella Miller Graber with granddaughter. Ella and her husband Hank left for Ohio. The granddaughter lives in Largo and decided to wear her Amish dress. Afterall she appreciates her Amish Roots.

The bus leaves for the north.

Here and There

Albert serviced my bike this afternoon. The one wheel had a loud click-clack and I could be heard coming from a distance. Also my brakes squealed to a loud stop whenever I braked. A little bit of grease cured that.

The baby squirrels are fending for themselves, so the population has boomed at the park. I have noticed squirrels are territorial and have a pecking order.

At the Pinecraft Park. I don't know their story.
