More Critters!

Well Mama Deer doesn't drop in as much but I guess she told her kid it was ok to come here and play. The Baby brings a friend now. Mama used to hang at the edge of the woods and yard and watch baby, but now the large eared baby comes with his friend and they are funny to watch. They kick up their back heels and tear around the yard chasing each other. Then they wander over near the edge of the woods where the grass is tall and they graze and look around as their munching away.

I guess the foxes moved on. I haven't seen them lately and the other day there were wild turkey's in the yard. I don't think the Turkey's would have been here if the foxes were still close by.

Whenever anyone comes over and they see the wildlife and I tell them what I see. They all say the same thing" You are so lucky to live here"

I am lucky, it is a beautiful peaceful spot here at Main Street. I appreciate it and realize how blessed I am. Besides I even take the time and actually get to enjoy it. No vacations needed for me this year, I am on vacation.

Pam, perhaps you could answer a question for me. I'm a city girl who's going rural and will have "wild land" (but only an acre each) in back and to each side. While watching does seem fascinating,I feel certain that I will have to keep my small dog inside, but what about vegetation? Do you grow any vegetables, plants etc. outside that the creatures would eat? Would my orchids have to become inside dwellers also? Your tales of the creatures are making me anxious on the one hand and a little worried on the other.

PAM,

 

LIVING IN THE WOODS IS WONDERFUL. WE TOO HAVE DEER OF ALL SIZES, RACOONS, WOODCHUCKS. AND AHOST OF OTHER CRITTERS. I CAN ALWAYS TELL WHEN MY NUTTY NEIGHBOR'S WIFE COMES OUT. THEY SEE HER FACE AND SCATTER QUICKLY. DARNEST THING.

Phyllis,

 

You can get lists of deer resistent plants that you can have in your yard if the deer become a problem and they do for to some people, but others will plant things just to keep them coming by. If you live around deer, it's just another element you plan for.

 

It's a life style choice whether or not you like the wild life coming around. I personally love it and am envious of Pam and her deer. We have rabbits who eat the tops off some bulb plants that I've yet to know what kind of plants they are. A friend gave me the bulbs, couldn't remember what they were and so I think it's rather funny to see the rabbits find them first before they get big enough to identifty. I even like the shunk who wanders by occasionally. The dog has a great time barking at it and scared the you-know-what out of it.

I actually don't live in the woods, I am on a busy street in the village, the woods surround me on three sides. But sitting on my patio, you'd never know you are on a village lot.
