Another sure sign of spring and the eternal cycle of life is the birth of the next generation. Check out the new baby javelinas!



March 18 2020

The day before the equinox.




March 12 2020

We had a few days of beautiful spring rain! You can just feel the gardens soaking up the moisture.



March 9 2020

The Koi came up from deep in their sleep in the bottom of the pond. It must be spring!




March 4 2020

The sun . . . the blue sky . . . an irresistable urge to open . . .



March 2 2020

The gardens are beginning to respond to the yearly cycle of rebirth . . . and we're joining in . . .





February 28 2020

Colors of late winter . . .

February 27 2020

This was a surprise. We didn't expect a local cat and Mr. Fox to be so relaxed around each other.

February 21 2020

We had some leftover lasagna last night and decided to share it with our neighbors. Ms. Fox seemed to enjoy it.

February 20 2020

Wouldn't you know - just when you think things are perfect, some interloper has to show up and try to crash the party.

February 18 2020

The Foxes from Surgeon's House Hill seem to have become an established couple. We're hoping to see some cute little kits this spring!

February 10 2020

Suddenly, an overnight February snow.




February 9 2020

It doesn't seem that Mr. Fox can get enough of climbing that tree.


February 7 2020

Well, it turns out that when Mr. Fox learned how to climb the tree up to the feeding platter, he decided to keep climbing to see what else was in the tree. What a curious dude . . . Later that day . . . a little bunny came by. So cute!



January 31 2020

The evening starts with a couple of locals taking turns sampling from the feeding tray. After Pepe LePew leaves, Mrs. Fox approaches cautiously and shares the dining experience with the Mr. In the end, Mr. Fox strikes a pose. If only we had a better camera . . .



January 30, 2020 - Has Mr. Fox found a Mrs. Fox, or are they just good friends?

January 29, 2020 - Mr. Fox seems to have learned to climb the food tree from the racoons. Evolution at work!


January 26, 2020 - More signs of life, both in the house and the garden.



January 22, 2020 - Can you feel spring coming? The helliborus can.


January 20, 2020 - As the javelina eats Mr. Fox watches and waits in the background. Perhaps Mr. Fox is a little wary of the wild pig.


January 16, 2020 - Another night and another encounter. Below we see Mr. Fox at the feeder getting a bite. He doesn't seem to notice Mr. Racoon coming in. Suddenly, he does notice and appears startled. And then, and then - do they actually eat out of the bowl together? Seems so. Somewhere during dinner, Pepe LePew shows up, and both fox and coon take careful notice of him. Later, Mr. Coon, satisfied, lumbers back into the night. Pepe and Mr. Fox hung out a while longer and didn't seem to have any issues. Peace reigns supreme . . .


January 9, 2020 - Last night there appears to have been a disagreement between two of our javelina guests at the feeding trough. However, by the morning things had calmed down, and we received a visit from a very civilized lady who was not concerned if Joshua hung out while she had breakfast.


January 4, 2020 - A group of raccoons is called a gaze. Raccoons are sociable animals within the family group. They will remain with the family group for a year before venturing off to look for a mate. So, here is a "gaze" huddling around the ground feeder this night. They seem happy.

January 3, 2020 - It looks like we might have mated pair of arizona gray foxes. How romantic!

December 30, 2019 - Somebody called this javelina "Santa's little helper". We'll let you be the judge.

December 27, 2019 - We actually had snow on Christmas Day. It started in the afternoon and continued on and off for a few more days. It is our first winter wonderland shoot for this year.






Stay tuned for more winter photos. We never know these days what's coming next. Could be blossoms in February or blizzards in April. It's a mystery.
