In Memory of Bentley
Bentley died in February. I think of him often, especially when I explore our yard. When he was healthy, Bentley would go outside with me and scout out all "points of interest".
I his honor, today I went on a tour of our yard and took photos of the critters Bentley might have discovered.
He loved to hunt lizards. . .
. . and he spent lots of time on the back porch checking out the visitors to our pond.
I found this beautiful black snake . . .
when I walked over to look at this tree because I saw insects flying around it.
Upon closer examination, I discovered it is a honey tree - look at the bees!
And finally, I convinced this butterfly to stop long enough for a photo op.
I thought that was a fitting end to today's exploration since it is Easter Day and the butterfly is a symbol of rebirth and resurrection.
Although it seems far too short, I'm grateful for the time Bentley was in my life and the pleasant memories I have of him.
Goodbye, little buddy. You are missed and fondly remembered.
