    Last Saturday I had a Mom and her two little ones visit my feeder. They were to beautiful to shoe away! :) image.jpgimage.jpg

    You're welcome! I haven't seen a spotted baby deer since I was a girl! How delightful to live where you do, where you can leave food out and have THOSE sweeties show up! I remember when the squirrels show up and I loved that , but THIS one really made me VERY, VERY happy!
    Thanks ski, again for posting these photos that make me so happy! JOY!!!
    We have to be careful what we put in the compost here! We are even told this year to pick any fruit or berries ASAP because we haven't had rain, so the bears are coming in people yards. to find food! Also, apparently the peach trees especially are being targeted by wasps, which ruin a whole peach with one hole they bore into it! I think I'd like where you live better! There was a cougar that streaked past me one night when I was out walking! That was frightening! Cougar attracts are common as well as fatal here in B.C. And the next province Alberta!

    Gosh Diane..you have all sorts of wildlife close by...some I don't think I'd want hanging around. Cougar...heck no! I'd be scared as heck and running the other way...thought that'd probably not be the wisest thing to do!

    A few evenings ago...we were outside enjoying a cocktail and chomping in shelled peanuts..and along side came a deer just 10 feet from us! :) image.jpg

    That's a great shot of a deer in your yard. I especially like your choice of imported Canadian beer.
    I live too far inside my city to have deer come anywhere near my yard.:(

    Freudian typo? ;)

    @skimonkey Before the houses vis-à-vis were built, we also saw rabbits, foxes and deer in our street. :)

    No, just the darned auto-correct.

    Did you ever try without it?

    I always thought that you're living somewhere on the outskirts, when I saw the photos you posted from your street.

    At the end of my block is a large park, one of a series of connected parks running across the city totalling several thousand acres in total size. That and the thousands of trees lining the streets in my area of the city make it seem closer to the countryside than it really is.
    Auto correct does have its uses, such as capitalizing the proper letters when typing words such as iPhone.
