Outside, Just Now


The bird seed bandit (and apple bandit, elderberry bandit, etc.) and her little ones as seen through my (yes, dirty) bedroom window.

These three have become quite the regulars in our yard. Treebeard yells at them when they pull apples off the tree, Hannah (the dog) ignores them, and I just sigh...where there are deer, there are pesky ticks. But then again, it is entertaining to watch the fawns play. I'm such a sucker.

a lonely fawn peeps from behind the house we are trying to buy--we'll have a tiny wooded area . . . oh swampy, i'm so excited!

There are often deer on our property but I've not seen a fawn here yet this year.

SQMojo,
I'm excited for you! We have never owned a home, but plan to build one when Treebeard retires in a couple of years. The idea simultaneously thrills and terrifies us.

OW,
this has been the year of the fawns for me. I've seen lots of them at both the home swamp and the work swamp.

How lucky you are to have such wonderful visitors to your yard, even though they eat your fruit. I think it's wonderful to live in harmony with the wild creatures that surround us.
