Tranquility

April 14, 2009
The small creek flowing behind our cabin has a really neat waterfall, albeit small. We enjoy it and its soothing sound. I experimented a little with the camera this past weekend and produced the moderately successful picture shown below. I think this might be a popular photo subject for many cabin visits.

Vandy the Wonderdog Meets a Hollow Tree

April 13, 2009
Vandy and I went for a walk last evening. The walk route is lined with a series of old, knarly trees that tend to be hollow. She found one hollow tree that was quite interesting and she dove in

Next she was barking up the inside of the tree

and then decided to look out the ‘back door’ to see what might be outside of the tree.

To Hell with the snow! The Hellebores are blooming. In witchcraft legend it is believed that Hellebores have ties to summoning demons. Great! After the last eight years of demons in the White House we do not need to be summoning more. Oh well, the flowers¬†are a joy to look at – even in today’s snow.

Smorgasbord Will be Served Soon

April 5, 2009
It is getting kind of ridiculous. The deer visiting us have invited some more family and friends. Now we have six of the critters visiting us every evening. Pickings are a bit limited right now. But, they need not worry as our flowers and vegetables will be ready for their dining pleasure soon. Damned deer!
