Stix n Brix, NC
We like our backyard because it has a pond that is shared by 5 other houses in our subdivision. We don’t have someone else’s back yard right at our back door. We have enjoyed some of nature right at our steps. When I work in the yard, I often times see the hoof prints left behind by a visiting deer. We see several turtles and herons enjoying the water. We’ve even seen squirrels swim in the water for the fun of it…yes they dove right in. Of course, I never get pictures of these things but, I’ll share some of what I do have.
We enjoy our hummingbird feeder which is stuck to the window of our breakfast nook.
We occasionally have a Green Heron visit us. He doesn’t hang around very long.
Lizards are only snakes with legs but the legs make us like them so much better than snakes.
Notice how he is eating his shedding skin in the first shot. They are good to have around to eat bugs. So are dragonflies.
And some of the wildest wildlife ever seen in our backyard…Smudge!!
Unless you consider Gin wild. ;) She does have her moments.
Until next post. Everyone enjoy the little things in life.
