Beautiful View

I love where I live, it's beautiful.  We have a fantastic view of the valley down below us and of the wonderfully blue lake.  It's not a big lake but it sure is nice to look out on.

I woke up this morning at 6 am and looked out my kitchen window and there were two young deer, close enough to touch.  They were nibbling on my trees, but as long as they don't make a habit of that, I don't mind too much, at least they weren't my fruit trees.

My husband and I were out spraying the weeds yesterday and I was checking out our fruit trees.  I am not a gardener.  I plant one every year and I'm not sure what goes wrong between the planting and the reaping....there actually is no reaping.  It's a good thing I have children who plant great gardens.  Anyway as I was looking at the fruit trees I noticed itty bitty little fruit.  I am so excited, our peach tree hasn't had peaches in years and this is the first time for our cherry tree.

Now all I have to do is keep the critters away long enough so we can enjoy the "fruit of our labors".  Wish me luck.


  1. I'd almost have deer nibbling at my trees and close enough to touch and have a beautiful view of your lake than have producing fruit trees. Although why can't you have it all?!

  2. If it was spring or fall at your house all year round, I would probably live on your front porch and never leave. It is one of my favorite places to be.
