country visitors

one thing that i have really enjoyed
while living here on the farm,
is our country visitors.

while i do enjoy having friends over for coffee,
the visitors i am talking about is
the animal variety.

there have been our share of the bad types.
skunks.
snakes...in our basement.  yuck.
black widow spiders.
and cute little ground squirrels who thought our yard was their playground.
100's of holes they have dug.
not real easy getting rid of them.

anyway.
here are some of our favorites.


this 'ant' is about 1 inch long.
we were told that they will go into the underground bee hives and
eat the larvae.

a robin nesting in our cherry tree

young raccoons in our cherry tree.
can you see them?

rabbits that have their young in my flower gardens

this little fella kept attacking the side mirror
on my husband's fuel truck.


we have been lucky enough to see a great horned owl twice in
the last 5 years but unfortunately no pictures.
however we were blessed to get a photo of this snowy owl
last winter.

and of course, deer.
the top two we saw just last week.
and guess what?
they also liked our cherry trees!

Love all your country visitors! We have many of the same ones here! There must be something about cardinals and windows/mirrors. We have one that attacks our bay windows on an almost daily basis... for over a year now! lol

Anyhow, I'm definitely delighted I stumbled upon it and I'll be bookmarking it and checking back
