Tree Hugger

I am a luck dragon
Five Things Friday (Tree Hugger)
It's Friday!
Have you hugged your tree yet?

I gave mine a squish, then greedily ate as many blackberries as I could find, and topped it off with every single ripe cherry tomato.  Really the garden is just a big cattle trough for me to wander along, snacking here and there a couple times a day.  Other than greens and zucchini, not much makes it in the house.  We're a whole family of omnivores; the puppies beg for strawberries, the kitties gnaw the snap peas (true story), and I eat carrots with the stems springing from my mouth like a jaunty pipe.  Kind of like a rabbit... hmmm...  So here's the question: what type of animal ARE you?  I'm afraid I'm some sort of piggy-rabbit-thoroughbred hybrid.  All legs and ears and quick rooting nostrils.  At least something like that.

Cheerio you summer thangs!

Crow~Platypus~Real Puss~Rabbit too...Gosh... I fear that combo could be quite ugly to see...Though the powers fierce...

{This morning I made whole wheat banana pancakes and my cat nearly chewed my fingers off when I offered her a bite! She loves them! And green peas and peanuts too...}

Love the photo of your lovely long limbs Umber...

Umber-bunny, I'm a wild, I tell you, WILD mustang!
Ever since I visited the Pryor Mustang Range, I am obsessed, addicted to the wild horse! Let them be free, I tell you! Free as a bird.
I wonder, will I ever get to be lucky enough to wear a winged ring made from your hands?
That M always snags the one I want.
It's OK. My time will come...

UmberDove said...

AnDee - HA! Even just the crow-platy... that is a force to be reckoned with!

Brandi - I knew you had some horse in you too.

PRAIRIEGIRL - Lady, I'm making wild horse rings tonight for the journey!

Loaf (my fabulous kitty) loves snap peas, too. Pounces on them, bats them around, then eats them whole. It's pretty cute.
