We have had a lot of rain over the last few weeks. We live near a river and it has been driven out of its banks and into the fields and meadows around us. So many animals had to move out and up and into our neighborhood. Yesterday morning on my way to work I saw coyotes, not chickens, crossing the road. Sorry, I didn't get a picture. But I did get a shot of these guys hanging out by my deer feeder .
Need a better view? How about this one. They are on the run because I stepped on a stick and spooked them so the photo is a bit blurry.
Did you see the mane on the big one? Is it called a mane?
I'm not complaining. I know that the feral hogs are a huge problem in Texas. I have seen the destruction and they are intimidating when they are in a large herd. However, this week they provided a service to me. We have a lot of grubs this year (could this have a connection to the drought?) and the pigs came through our front yard and turned over every grain of dirt and sand under our trees looking for and eating them. It loosened the dirt so much that the weeds are just laying on the ground. Luckily they found all they could eat under the trees and left the grass alone.
Unfortunately I have been having trouble getting any good shots of the deer. I did get this one from my trail camera.
Disregard the date and time. I didn't reset these when I changed the battery.
I need to start putting together a plan for my Spring Break. I am considering making some pillow cases with pretty crochet trim. I got the idea from Yougogirl who did a great tutorial on them. Take a peek and see what you think. Here is her 4 part tutorial.
That's one option. Any suggestions?
