Behinder

...as in "the hurrier I go...." I'm behind in reading YOUR blogs, and keeping up with MINE. Still plugging away, though; that's all I can do. For now, here's a collection of photos from around our little little land-holding. Sorry; no "Vitamin L" (thanks to Sara for that lovely label!) this post, but I do have some Vitamin S for you. ;-)

Benny, part of Annabelle's legacy:

Bittersweet (now faded to "Hot Cocoa"), another one of Annabelle's wethered sons. Obviously the browse is better on the other side of the fence; problem is, he got stuck twice last week!

We don't see deer around much any more, which makes occasional sightings more appreciated:

A "wildcat" in the woods? Actually, I learned this big black panther belongs to our neighbors to the south:

Beyond him in the woods I glimpsed  a bit of purple, so I went for a walk:

There were also some bright spots of yellow,

white,

and unwelcome RED!

I decided to head back toward the house before coming into contact with poison oak; I don't intend to find out if I react to it!

On the way I spotted this little fellow:

Love this thread leaf Japanese maple on my deck!

Thanks for joining me on a walkabout at . . .

Nice shots of Benny! Deer and a "panther"... nice to see the wildlife. Your woods look so lush...and the flowers are a spring delight! So pretty.

I'm scared of poison oak, too, but it's weirdly attractive, isn't it? I would have loved to see the snail!

Missing your corner of the world. Thanks for the lovely glimpses of "home." Missing you more than usual.

Nancy Kay, woods in the Pacific NW are almost TOO lush to be able to walk about and enjoy them – but I do love it here.

Yes, it is attractive, Mary Ann, but it is one thing I am willing to poison with chemicals. The prior owner of this property had goats and they ate it; don't know if my Shetlands would or not.

The "Eden at the End of the Oregon Trail," Sharon!

You're welcome, dear friend; will try to call tonight.
