Oh, Deer!

Remember this adorable photo of the deer in my backyard from last year? Well, I'm rethinking my affection for the wide-eyed innocent looking creatures who visit me so often. Half my green beans were munched the other day and look what they did to my hostas! Now, I'm willing to share, but did they have to take the whole barrel full?

Busy day: I mowed the lawn, cleaned the garage, weeded the garden, baked, and went to a dental appointment.

Reward: Relaxing with a nice cold Mojito made with fresh mint from my garden.

Aaahhhh. It was a good day!

Lions and Tigers and Bears....

My son's fiance, Linda is an environmental engineer and has been working on a project in the Western Upper Peninsula. They have a motion sensor camera set up on the property and these are some of the shots they have captured. Cool! I love the bobcat ~ we know they're out there but I've never seen one in the wild. She said the bear is a sow with cubs.

Greetings from Cuba!

It took 7 weeks, but I got a postcard from Cuba from my friend Erich who vacationed there! What's the big deal you say? Have YOU ever received a postcard from Cuba? There is such a climate of political change in the world, we may be packing our bags for a trip to Havana before you know it. Bring your sunscreen and your humidor...

Happy Birthday, Kevin!

I remember when we were growing up the pink climbing roses on the back fence used to start to bloom on your birthday! Now the yellow evening primrose in my garden blooms on your birthday. Enough about flowers ~ have a great day! I'll see you in a month at the Wild Reunion!
