Random Five Friday – 10-7-2016

p1070804Yesterday morning I looked out and saw a herd of deer in our backyard. I grabbed my camera and took some photos and a movie.

hrbbrdSomething killed a bird and also dug up the corner of my herb garden. We can’t imagine what made such a mess.
p1070854Our ornamental pear trees are full of little fruits. The birds and critters really enjoy these. It’s ashame the pears are inedible for humans.
brdcrxI’m making some progress on my cross stitch. Having other color threads loaded on needles is the way to go.

I just think it’s a pretty marigold.
Wishing you all a safe and pleasant weekend.

    • Thanks Laura
      We’re happy to see such a large herd. The little ones are so comical to watch.
      I hadn’t thought of a raccoon. There’s so much wildlife around here that it’s possible, I suppose.
      Thanks. I’m pleased with my cross stitching progress. It’s getting more pretty with every stitch.


  1. Aw, I loved your deer video! Isn’t it nice when they put on a show while we’re filming? Can’t imagine what made that mess in your herb garden. Who knows what goes on during the night, right? The marigold is beautiful!
    You’ve made a lot of progress on your cross stitch from your last post!
    Have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks so much Dianna
    Deer are such a joy to watch. It’s like being blessed with a Disney cartoon in my own yard.
    I agree, no telling what messed up my herb bed. Who knows what sorts of critters are out and about at night getting into all sorts of mischief.
    The marigolds are such brilliant right now. They’re one of the last bits of color in my flower beds before the heavy frosts.
    My cross stitch is coming along. I hope I finish soon.
    I hope you have a great weekend too.

    In our place when you look outside, it’s just cats and birds. Yours?!? Haha awesome. 🙂

      I live out in the country. Deer are fun to watch. However, if there wasn’t any around, I think Cats and Birds would be entertaining to watch.


    • Thanks Patti
      The herd was back again early this morning when I was sleeping, but thankfully my husband was awake and got to see them and take a few photos.
      Thanks for the compliment on my x-stitch. It was fun to make.
