We’ve been blessed with gorgeous weather lately, in the Norfolk-Virginia Beach-Chesapeake area, so I’ve taken to strolling around local parks and gardens with my camera, hoping to catch some wildlife enjoying the sun-soaked days, too. (Want a closer look? Click any photo below to enlarge it!)

At the Norfolk Botanical Garden, I found

this bunny resting along the berm that separates the Garden from the airport,

this raccoon racing through a sunny spot in the grass,

this green heron resting in a tree,
its plumage smoothed back into a sleek coiffure.

At the Chesapeake Arboretum, I spied

this iridescent teal damselfly, posing for its close-up,

this snake enjoying a soggy mudbath before heading for higher ground.

What will you find on your next outdoor adventure?

Therapy dogs are known to be a great help to children who are nervous about reading in front of adults. If you don’t have a dog at home (or even a willing cat), we have good news: Norfolk Public Libraries are on board with therapy dogs to help children read.

Tales to Tails is available at three branches in Norfolk: Barron F. Black Branch (E. Tanners Creek Dr.), Blyden Branch (E. Princess Anne Rd.), and Slover Library (E. Plume St.)

Visit NorfolkPublicLibrary.org for a full list of classes and registration forms.

The Little Theatre of Norfolk is staging the zany British comedy, “Noises Off” — and we’d love you to come experience the wacky world of theatre!

Called the funniest farce ever written, “Noises Off” presents a manic menagerie as a cast of itinerant actors rehearses a flop called “Nothing’s On” – only hours before the curtain goes up. Slamming doors, clattering tea sets, shattering windows, and slippery sardines all figure in the plot of this hilarious and classically comic play. Yet, the show must go on; despite the catastrophe being played out on stage and the vicious antics among the actors backstage.

Following the success of last season’s hit show, “The Women,” director Kathy Strouse returns to helm the madcap action of “Noises Off.” Will the actors be ready to take their places? Will everyone make it out alive? And why in the world are there so many plates of sardines?

During intermission, enter the raffle drawing to win one
of several prizes, including this British-themed gift box,
put together by the show’s producer — Jennifer Miele.
