An End of Summer Picnic

Summer’s winding down, and I’m just not ready to change our website banner over to a fall theme yet. I love the summer banner with its hummingbird, flowers, and butterflies too much! So here are a few extra close-ups to enjoy before the season is officially over.

One fine summer day, two little squirrels named Hodge and Podge go on a picnic.

They love to picnic in a garden surrounded by yellow daffodils, red and orange geraniums, and bright white daisies.

Hummingbird in Nest

Podge particularly enjoys watching the butterflies play among the flowers.

“Wait, is that a hummingbird I see?” Hodge asks Podge. “Look! I do believe she’s sitting on her nest. What a rare sight!”

“Can it be?” the hummingbird wonders. “Is that really two squirrels having a picnic? What a rare sight indeed.”

The squirrels invite the hummingbird to join them, and they all enjoy some cake.
