Living in the Mountains

One of the wonderful things about living in the mountains in NC is the beautiful trees, foliage and wild life.  

I know I have shown you pictures and a little video of the deer around my temporary home before.  I promise after today, I won't show anymore deer pictures, but today I was able to get some really good pictures to share with you.











I took these pictures from my back deck.  The deer are about 30 feet from me.  They are not the list bit concerned that I am taking pictures of them.

I know if I had a garden or expensive landscaping, I would be upset.  But I don't...and they were here first :-)

Enjoy!
Welcome Home,
Penny

  1. Don't worry, I don't mind photos of the wildlife at all! I just love seeing all the little animals and we have a back yard full of deer most of the time. Sometimes they run right past us when we are outside! They can be destructive, but they are so beautiful to watch:>)

  2. Penny, those were great photos! I know deer do alot of landscape damage but I think they are still really pretty. Thanks for sharing with us!

  3. They are beautiful! I can see their long eyelashes. We've had "sightings" of a black bear in the town north of us on Sunday, then the town south of us Monday, and this morning the news reported it being by the airport in the next town over. They believe it is the same bear. We live in West Michigan lower peninsula. So not common at all to see bear. Love your deer pictures!

  4. They are so pretty. I love watching them. I hope they don't come to our garden, but probably will.

  5. The deer in our neighborhood are quite calm about having humans nearby. We just all co-exist peacefully.

  6. They are so sweet.. I used to spend summers in cherokee and they were in the back field every morning, close to the woods.. We all fenced our gardens in so we could live and let live .. Thanks for the beautiful photos.

  8. Those deer are so pretty to look at! Good thing you don't have anything to worry about getting ruined by them. It's nice that you have lots of natural woods for them to roam.

  12. They are pretty and gentle........just a shame that they eat just about anything, well anything you plant and pray will thrive. Glad I don't have them here......but my fox is still in the garden so there should be kits somewhere close by, thankfully not under the gazebo this Spring!

  13. Great pictures! Can't get close to the deer here! How can something so lovely be so destructive?

  14. Penny,

    It must be such a thrill to see deer from your deck. Your photographs are stunning. They resonate such peace.

    When we lived in Princeton New Jersey deer were everywhere. I miss that.

    Have a beautiful day.

  15. You can show me as many pictures of deer as you want. I can't resist taking photos of them myself. Good that you have natures landscaping and don't have to worry about what they are eating.

  19. You can never have too many deer pictures for me. I loved seeing what is called a "button buck" and a fawn whose spots are fading.

  21. So fun to be living with wildlife. The older I get the more I enjoy watching the squirrels in our walnut tree or birds at the feeders. We went through a 'what should we do with the rest of our lives' year a while back. We ended up building a forever home with walk in showers and wide halls for when we might need them. We also decided we needed to be fairly close to medical care and family. And we needed to get settled before we get too decrepit to put in a yard and such. (we're almost there!!) It's kind of nice to have time to decide and have lots of options. I know so many people don't now. Sit on it and something will just feel right. Mimi
