“baby” ants

While enjoying the east porch Saturday afternoon, the girls discovered a line of small ants moving across the railing.

“Look at the baby ants!”

Having the ant crawl over her fingers and hand didn’t bother her at all. Different story for her sister.

Had to show it to Pa.

Putting the ant back “so he can go home and find his Mommy and his Daddy.”

Long after her sister lost interest, she kept watching and playing with the ants. Her ability to focus on one thing over a long period of time always surprises me.

    What an interesting story! Mary should write a story about that! I am admiring the redbuds blooming in the background! They are gorgeous! I hope mine bloom this year … can’t wait to see! They are your “babies” if you remember!!

    Thanks, Carolyn! Yes, the redbuds should be about ready to bloom. They bloom for us in the fourth year, usually. Let me know if they do bloom! Sometimes the first year bloom is pretty sparse. But it still counts. 🙂 ~~Rhonda

    Dearest rec, I think not. Though I would still love you if you did…long as it was for bicycling…I could whistle as you rode by, if you like. Love, ~~Rhonda
