The view from my perch on the mountain

Flora and Fauna

Rainy weather, memory foam cushions in my new La-Z-Boy and a general lack of get up & go have all conspired to keep my cameras idle for the most part but I have snapped a few frames.


These 3 wandered out of the tree line behind the house just as the light was fading yesterday evening. The one on the left is a doe and the other two are yearling bucks.


These guys changed from their winter gray coat to summer red awfully fast. It’s said that the redder the coat the hotter the summer ahead. Looks like we’re in for a scorcher!


The rain has knocked almost all the blossoms off the Granny’s Bonnets but there are plenty of buds ready to bloom at any moment.



Buddy, Lunatic Lab #1, “helping out” with the photography.


Doesn’t that look on Molly’s face just scream “I’m not doing anything….honest!” ?


Gotta have a burd in the mix. Now, to catch up on the backlog of blogs I’ve missed while unconscious sawing logs testing my new recliner.

  1. Looks like you have a lot of Bonnet seed pods in the making! The deer, do they eat The Boss’ flowers? Does she chase them with her iron skillet?

    • Frankie would probably like Love-In-The-Mist, it is a self seeding annual. Has a delicate, enchanting dangling flower. It’s also called Nigella.

    • I agree there KIrsten, such a feminine look about her, quite coy in fact. Liked the bird at the bottom, is it a Blue jay?
