Even during a hideous heat wave and drought, there is always one spot by our house that stays lush and green.
Can you guess where?
By the central AC unit!
There is a narrow pvc pipe sticking out that drips.
One day this summer, I saw a most curious sight... a sight that I've never seen in twenty five years of living here.
A critter had created a little hollow to collect the dripping water!!
When I looked a day or two later...
A trough had been added. Isn't that cool?! And what a clever critter!
So which critter is responsible for this creation?
I never spotted any tracks. Our current dumped doggie isn't broke out with smarts so that leaves one of these resident wild critters:
Did Barry Beaver trek all the way from the woods to create a charming little watering hole?
I've got it!!
Barry Beaver is the construction boss and the others are the construction crew.
Yep, sounds plausible to me.
What do you think?
By the way, I'm reading Wind In The Willows for the first time... Could you tell? The book is darling. (especially for a Brit-tv and Brit-book loving anglophile like me) Have you ever read it? Can't believe I waited so long to read it! And it is all thanks to Risa of Bread Crumb Reads! Thanks, Risa!Pin It
