Cubby, our cat, finds some interesting ways to get through the dog days of summer. And he’s not the only one basking in summer heat. William, our American toad, continues to return to his personal bath on the front doorstep. A white-tailed deer comes to the pond to graze and cool off every day. Juvenile white-crowned sparrows rest in the garden and the funny looking woodcock uses the cool and damp early mornings to hunt for insects in long grass. We’re all trying to make the most of the warmth while we’ve got it!
