Going on a pixie hunt.....

One thing that we have noticed right away here in Louisiana are the trees. They are huge. They are beautiful. These trees are something that my kids did not experience much of on the East Coast of NC. Near the shore, the trees are short and mostly of the evergreen variety. I planted several trees in our yard just to break up the landscape a bit.

There is a park very close to our house. My girls have decided to call it Pixie Hollow.
And why shouldn't they? This place looks truly enchanted. I was pretty sure I saw a fairy fluttering and hiding in that spanish moss patch right there. Do you see it?
The Big Apple decided that the pixies live in the knotholes of the tree and tried calling for them to come out to play. She didn't catch any, but she has vowed to bring them something next time to perhaps bring them out from hiding...what do fairies like to eat?
I was more curious about this little guy that in catching a pixie. And I think he was just as curious about me. I have never lived in a region of the country where I have seen black squirrels like this. He was so sweet and adorable. And tame and fat too. I am sure he is very well loved at this particular park. Perhaps when the girls go pixie hunting and bring treats for their friends, I will bring a treat for my new little friend.

I suppose I should give him a name. Any suggestions?

Bailey wishes you to know that no good can come from associations with squirrels. :)

Oh, if there is one there are many and you won't be able to tell them all apart.

I do like those trees... like the ones near my inlaws in FL. Gorgeous!

I love the Spanish moss! (I think I saw a pixie, too....with Spanish moss draped around her for a dress!)

I've never seen a black squirrel. I have seen an albino one before, though.

Welcome to our favorite "field trip" spot. It's great to play, walk, relax, play sports, etc. I'll take you to another neat place when we meet finally! Maybe this week!
