Butterflies flying freely in the air,
Bunnies bouncing here and there,
Trees and plants planted everywhere,
My beautiful garden, my dream world.
Friendly fox resting under a tree,
A baby bird sleeps in its nest,
Little beetle riding on a honey bee,
Living their lives, in peace and harmony.
Colourful flowers painted the scene,
Completed by fruits, hanging from the trees,
Its spring water is crystal clean,
Unpolluted garden, beautiful and serene.

I love to watch animals playing and being friends with other animals.
I think people must learn from animals and stop fighting with each other 😉
I know one cat who loves to ‘talk’ with crows.
It’s name is and it’ll make birdlike meows when it meows to the birds (that’s what my sister always says). Primiligh

A seven-months-old yellow baboon (Papio cynocephalus) carries a Galagos also known as a bushbaby at the Animal Orphanage in the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) headquarters in Nairobi, June 10, 2011. Defying nature, the Yellow Baboon, rescued in Maralal (northern Kenya) has quickly adopted a Galagos, rescued in Nyeri (central Kenya), after meeting at the orphanage giving it affection and protection as if it were her own offspring. Yellow baboons inhabits savannas and light forests in the eastern Africa while Galagos are small, nocturnal primates native to continental Africa. REUTERS/Thomas Mukoya

In this photo taken on Friday, June 29, 2012, Siberian tiger cub Clyopa plays with cat Masyanya in the house of Yekaterina Khodakova, whose Shar Pei dog Cleopatra is breastfeeding Clyopa and her sibling Plyusha in the Black Sea resort of Sochi. The cubs were born in late May in a small zoo at the Oktryabsky resport in Sochi, but their mother refused to feed them. Fewer than 400 Siberian tigers have survived in the wild, most of them in the cedar forests of Russia’s Far East. (AP Photo/Igor Yakunin)
