My favorite time to take pictures is in the late evening when the sun is low. Lately, that beautiful time is marred with a new tradition where the dogs go insane barking at the deer who traipse through our yard. What I love is that the last few days, the deer stop in the yard to stare at the two dogs who are going absolutely nuts at the door. Suzie is jumping up and down like a pogo stick and going bonkers. The deer stop there in the middle of the yard and just watch. I can’t help but wonder what they are thinking. In the meantime, I can step outside onto the patio to snap a photo or two while the deer are distracted by the bonkers dogs.
I love living in the country. I love the deer traipsing across the yard (although when they eat my garden next year I will have other things to say). I love fall evenings and the light coming through the leaves. I love the peace and quiet of this place (except, of course, when the dogs are going bonkers over the deer).
Life is good at the Homestead and I am so very thankful.
