Thanks to the Gods Who Create the Creatures —- Monday, September 23, 2019

“I Really love that feeling when you finally find out why that book got its Title!’ Unknown

We have a beautiful young buck roaming our yard at night

The game camera I set up to capture photos of the raccoon’s; captured this wondrous creature

Moving through the flower beds, his coat shimmering in the camera light

The gracefulness of his delicate and slender strong legs, the chiseled planes of his face, the long tufted ever-moving ears are delightful to behold.

Unbeknownst to me, Boomer followed the bucks tracks.  (I didn’t know until I checked the camera.)

Thankfully I can enjoy this creature and not be upset with him…I have planted all things deer don’t like to eat.

Now raccoons, let me tell you they enjoy lots of things in the yard…the apricots, the pears, the cherries, the prunes, the wild plums, the apples, and my tomatoes!

Just say’n. 🙂 🙂

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. There is a beautiful description of Fall on the Missouri Star Quilt Blog today. I don’t know how to forward it to you. Jenny Doan, the owner, muses on Fall and what it means. I never like Fall very well but she really opened my eyes–much as you often do. Take a look if you are interested. They specialize in quilt fabric and supplies, but today she commented instead. Enjoy.
    Hug your fur babies.



  2. J & D > What wonderful creatures – and you’re fortunate to get such a good clear shot. We have wonderful Red Deer in Uist, but alas many native islanders are pretty much hostile to anything natural – deer, geese, any creature that does something that they don’t like.
