Yes, I have a tasty garden! At least the deer seem to think so! :) Because the deer like my garden so much, most of what I have planted are deer proof or deer resistant plants. There is a difference between the two. The deer proof plants they just will not touch, like my rosemary. The deer resistant plants are plants that the deer will not normally eat, but they will eat if they are hungry enough. I caught a few photos of one such deer who actually nibbled on the rosemary only to spit it out! So for today, I share with you photos of this lovely doe! The captions speak for themselves! Enjoy!

I know that you have all been waiting for this year’s contestants! I wanted to post this two months ago, but not being able to get out and get candidate photos was bothersome for me!

So without further ado, here are this year’s candidates for Pretty Feet 2014!

Something a bit different today! I discovered Teaser Tuesday hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading. The rules of this tease are:

Teaser Tuesday!

Teaser Tuesday!

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teaser:

“Dead people don’t move. Embalming and all that other icky stuff that happened at funeral homes took care of that, right?”

The book: “Trouble in Mudbug”
Author: Jana DeLeon

Thank you also to Al over at Kattermonran for sending me this way!

I will be down for a couple of days as the next two include chemo treatments! Until next timed – be well!

Today I decided to challenge myself. My challenge is to feature photos that feature common aromas. My challenge to you, my dear reader, is to add a link to this post, of a photo that you have that brings back that memory of a certain aroma! Ready? Here we go!

Can you smell the bacon?

Cooked bacon!

Or, how about this steaming hot bowl of chili?

There is nothing like a good pizza!

Can't you just smell this lemon?

Could you smell any of these? Please let me know! And, if you are in for the challenge, include a link to one of your posts that has a photo that invites us in with the aroma!

Have a great Monday and thanks for dropping in!

Terraces - Photo by Bjorn Rudberg

Terraces – Photo by Bjorn Rudberg

We bought the land oh so many years ago for its beauty! We had to terrace and level the ground so that we could build.

It was the rock walls that took us the longest to do. All the rock came from the property. Each one was picked for its perfection then it was added to the wall. One by one each rock was carefully put into place. When we were done we had built seven terraces!

Today the land still holds it beauty, and most of the rock is where we placed it. Our next project: Removing weeds!
