This was a pleasant surprise I found while watering my zinnia flowers. I grew up helping my father feed the animals at our local wild animal park, where he was in charge. He would often bring home newborn animals whose mothers would not feed them, so we could take care of them until they were strong enough to care for themselves. I continue to do so with the many creatures that we are blessed with on our 20-acre property. I am grateful for the opportunity.
