We have visitors! A family of racoons has taken up residence in our big maple tree outside! They just came out of their nest which happens to be INSIDE our old, hollow tree. There are four babies that we've seen so far, and no-one has seen the momma yet. They made their appearance yesterday, and were up ALL night chittering away and exploring the yard. Every time I woke up to pee or other wise, I could hear them excitedly yelling and playing in the yard. It's a good thing we no longer have chickens! I just have to make sure the cats are inside in the evening now! And keep the garbage can lid on tight! The picture is of two of the pups cuddling and sleeping in the fork in the tree.
And Cherry couldn't let me take pictures of the racoons without snapping some of her too. So, for your veiwing pleasure, here's Cherry!
