Just two for this busy day.

Lantana flowers in the backyard. When I was a little girl, my Easter bonnets were almost always decorated with artificial flowers that looked just like these, though the colors were more pastel. I had never seen lantana, which I guess didn’t grow up in New England, so I assumed they were a make-believe kind of flower. I was very surprised to discover lantana flowers when we moved to Florida.


Squirrel on the fence. I really think they tease Max, catching his attention and then racing along the fence and leaping into a tree.
