beds2Believe it or not, there’s more going around here most of the time besides cooking and eating. We garden. We go antiquing. And BeeBop builds. He’s a right fair carpenter, too.

I knew that if I opened the door they would be gone before I could snap a single photo, so I shot them through the windows. They watched me watching them for a long time.  Three beautiful does. They nibbled on the shrubs at the rear of the yard for a while and then ambled off into the wooded lot next door. Hope they found something tasty for dinner. By the time that I re-focused on cooking, ours was umm…just a little scorched.
