Wicked Walk 6/3/2015

Even after a week of sunshine there are still puddles everywhere but I’m not complaining!  I spent an hour drinking coffee on the porch, watching the hummingbirds fight, then slipped on my tennis shoes for a walk.

Here is what I saw.

walk birdI think this bird already had some breakfast, he was just kinda hanging out.

And my darling chickens are quite fond of unripe blueberries, I’d like you to see my entire crop from 3 bushes this year…..

walk blueberryHow much you wanna bet something gets them before they are ripe?

However, my blackberries are producing right and left AND being left alone!  Yay!!!!!!

“Happy Dance”

Then I crested a hill and saw a movement.  At first I thought “Good Gawd those are the biggest rabbits in Texas!”

Then I thought “Oh, that’s a little bobcat!”

Then I realized, it was a pair of twin fawns crossing the road!  I only got one shot and missed the lead twin but isn’t she a treasure?!

walk deerI had planned on walking a lot farther than half a mile from the house but didn’t want Nosey chasing after the little spotted darlings.  And besides, seeing wild babies, well, its hard to top that.  So I trudged home happily thinking about my encounter with the two biggest ‘rabbits’ in Texas.

Thanks for walking with me today y’all.

  1. Blueberries must be like crack for the critters! Mine just “poof”, disappear! I’ve eaten one or two! Next year I break out the nets, chain link fence with razor wire plus hire a couple of 300 pound marines!
    I love the sweetgum trees picture? Now I could stretch out on a hammock under those big guys and cut some zzzzzzz!
    Happy cobbler feasting! Not jealous, nope nope nope!
