Every evening around 7:30, I make my last trip to the barn to check on The Girls. Last evening was no different.
When I returned to the house about ten minutes later and entered into the mud room to take off my ‘mucking out’ boots, I turned around and just happened to glance out the window which overlooks the ‘back forty’. The young doe in the distance was staring back at me.
I’ve learned from experience that they don’t remain in one spot for very long so I ran into the kitchen and grabbed my camera.
I used the zoom feature to bring her closer.
She stopped just long enough to grab a few morsels…
then turned around and disappeared back into the woods.
Pleasant dreams, young lady.
Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!
Since red, white and blue are my favorite colors, they can be found in abundance around our home, both inside and out.
The red, white and blue annuals in the planter boxes on our front veranda are enjoying the summer weather…
as well as those in the antique wheel barrow that graces our front yard.
We even have a little patriotic corner in our dining room.
See the blue African violets to the right and red and white ones to the left on the tea cart? The hooked sampler above is a one-of-a-kind treasure that I picked up in Berlin, Ohio in 2003 while on a teaching assignment. It was designed and hooked by Melanie Owens as a tribute to 9/11.
Enjoy the day and be safe everyone!
