Oh My! "Wildlife"

The Mulberry Tree that was pictured in my last post, now has some wildlife feeding on the berries.  Every year the deer and birds have a feast under the tree.  This deer has been here just about all day, they get so they don't get scared off that easy and I was able to get a couple of pictures.  Had to take them real quick before she ran off.  She is beautiful!

Greenery Everywhere!

I love all the brilliant greens of spring and summer.  Everything looks so green and lush with the trees full of their summer finest.  This is our Mulberry tree and it is loaded with berries.  The berries are white and will turn black when they ripen, the birds and deer will have a feast with all the berries.  Hopefully I will be able to get some pictures of the deer to post here.  A few years ago we debated on cutting the tree down but I told my husband no, it gives the deer and the birds food.  I'm glad we didn't cut it down, this tree is so big but this branch looked so pretty with the sun shining on it I just had to get this picture.  Enjoy!

Hens n Chickens

Just had to share this picture.  My cousin takes old work boots and plants Hens n Chickens in them.  He gave me these a couple of years ago but this Spring they have really taken off.  I guess all the snow and cold weather we had over the winter has really helped all the plants.  Everything around our house seems to be growing like crazy and the trees all look so beautiful all dressed in their green leaves.

I had these work boot planters out by our other door but the chipmunks keep munching on them so I had to move them to where they are now.  I had another pot of the same plant by the other door but the chipmunks ate them.  I didn't think the chipmunks would munch on this type of plant.

Enjoy everyone and have a wonderful day, it is so beautiful here today.  Our mulberry tree is just loaded with berries.  They are not ripe yet but when they are, the deer and the birds will have a feast.  Hopefully I can get some pictures of the deer eating the berries when they get ripe.
