These bee boxes are at the gas station. I liked the color and imagining where they might be going.

Gopher Tortoise in the Florida Scrub


Armadillos in Florida

Three young armadillos live in my front yard this summer. When they are foraging, they are fearless and you can walk right up to them. A lot of people try to get rid of armadillos because of the damage they do to their lawns. I have always left them alone and eventually, they leave.
There are no armadillos in either of my books. Maybe because they aren't scary enough?
