Surprise visitor to the Fall Garden

While strolling in my garden this fine day I came across an unexpected visitor..

It wasn’t this squirrel storing up supplies for the coming winter…


And it wasn’t this pair of kinglets who stopped by for a drink and bath.


It wasn’t Tiger who drank the flavored water after they left..

Nor this spider who made a home in the rosemary..

The turtle stands daily, stone cold on the stream’s edge,ย  so it was not him.

No.ย  It was in the woodpile.

Where I found the visitor hiding.



How he got there I will never know.ย  But I shall let him stay.

  1. You probably don’t want him using your cell phone to phone home; the roaming charges could be considerable. . . .
