She Chose Our Yard!

We have just under one acre within the city limits! We share the end of the cul-de-sac with one other house. So both our properties are a fairly large pie wedge with most of the yard being in the back.

We also are close to a 1,459 acre forest, so we are always getting deer, hawks, falcons and many other animals that stray from the woods on their adventures.

However, with all the deer we have seen, we have never had a pregnant doe choose our yard for her “birthing center”! The last two nights we have had the joy of watching this little one take it’s first few steps into the world. All under the protective eye of it’s mother in our fenced backyard.

Just like a curious little one… sticking it’s head into the bush!

It’s been really exciting watching the little one take it’s first steps. Momma looks pretty young herself, and seems to be a very good one!

We’re going to try and keep getting updates without disturbing them! Would you like them too?

In and/or On

If you have a cat you know how they can get into the smallest of boxes and love to lay on anything (even the smallest pieces of paper). Well for those of you who don’t have cats, here is just a
few pictures of our cats in and/or on things!
