Spring!

Don't you just love spring?! Well spring has finally sprung in our neck of the woods. We live at the top of a mountain and so we seem to get winter earlier and spring later than most folks. It truly is amazing how it can be snowing at our home on top the mountain but it's not doing anything at the bottom! My daffodils are just done blooming and my hostas are just beginning. Of course, flowers don't last long up here anyway when you have 3 curious toddlers plucking the blooms off. LOL!

I love to sit on my front porch and swing and listen to the birds chirping happily. My brother (who lives next door) has been seeing lots of wild turkeys behind our homes and actually witnessed one doing a mating dance! Now that's something you don't see too often. LOL!

We've been so privledged to live here and see all of God's beautiful wildlife up close and personal. Sometimes too personal! The past two years we've had rattlesnakes that have come right up to our home. God's gracious hand of protection was on our children those days as they are the ones to "run" into them!
When we first moved in a black bear went strolling right across our driveway snuffling around for vittles as he/she went. We were watching from inside the house....the best way to view a black bear! And of course we have oodles of deer that love to eat my sister-in-laws beautiful flowers, actually, anything she plants. They are the best fed deer around!

So that's just a glance at our "paradise". We just call it home!!

Hey, just remember... those deer were there first! If someone wants to plant a smorgasborg for them, who are they to say no?
