The fox I saw in the neighborhood a few weeks ago has stayed around! A momma, I expect – very skinny right now, so I’m thinking a female with kits still nursing. No way any self-respecting male fox could be skinny with the wildlife around here. And walking down the wall and trotting off across the patio, with the same high step – beautiful, remarkable, wonderful.
AND as I glance out the window – a momma doe with twin fawns. She is hitting up the bird feeder for her meal. The twins are trying out the veggies in the garden – eating the leaves off one of the hot peppers! One has backed away, the other is chowing down. One of the twins leaped straight up on to the top of the wall – showing off and being proud – and then walking around shaking out its leg for just a moment.
Looks like I’ll have to spray everything with Liquid Fence after I finish watering today. What a great ‘problem’ to have!
And now – the blue jays are letting me know it’s time for peanuts.
