X2! This is definitely a year to put in the rear view mirror. Well, except for the lovely lady that entered my life. 8)

That is a great set of pictures even without the reference to the old year.  

I must admit 2020 had some good things about it.  We started a house on or land in Va.  We have a new 5 month old grandson and a blessed with our health and family.  Yes it has had its challenges too and will not go there.

@sawguy21  , I also just love the few little bright spots that we’ve all seemed to have had in an otherwise bleak year!

Happy New Year 2021,  HERE WE COME! But watch out when we all get there folks. In whatever “there” might be!

A good day spent by all. Was nice here to, but more cloudy, still lots of sun shining.  Got all the garden rows covered in floating fabric and the main garden fenced in early this morning, including a run to the woodlot to make 8 more posts, and was home for Breakfast at 8:00 am. :)

  Actually, this is more like looking in my back door. For several years this old doe has bedded down in this spot about 125 yards behind my house. It is in a deep draw with a spring in the bank that we have tapped into to water the livestock. I dragged a locust log across the draw several years ago as a dam and it has built up into a small flat plateau this deer likes to lay on. It is cool and deep shade and water right there if she wanted it. I am sure she has a fawn nearby but I did not see it. I took this picture from an ATV trail about 40 yards above her. She never even got up when I stopped and took her picture.

  Today I spotted this turkey hen about 10 yards behind my backyard fence. She has a sibling or friend about 50 yards further up the hill out of the picture. It had rained and they were turning over bark from my sawing and firewood to get the worms on the surface.

The 4 baby bluebirds have already this raised in and left this box a few weeks ago or the mom and dad would be sending this young lady packing!

I stepped out on the front porch to let Sampson inside and spotted this young doe about 40 yards away on the hillside in my pasture. She was munching happily on an assortment of weeds I probably should have already weedeaten down.

  I think this is the same doe my wife saw out the bathroom window yesterday with her fawn following her. In this picture she seems to have the fawn safely parked back at the nursery somewhere. She raised her head, looked behind her and trotted off. A few seconds latter, Trigger, our big palomino horse walked down this same trail she is standing in.

  Sights like this are a daily occurrence here in rural WV.

 I was scoping out the back/bathroom window this afternoon and watched this hawk swoop in and light in this tree. I think it is a Cooper's hawk as they are common here and come down to catch chipmunks and squirrels. There are blackheart cherries with ripe fruit all around him and the squirrels are feasting on them.

If you look above the left side of the gate and slightly to the right and up you can see the hawk in the distance. I am not sure if the bluebirds are raising a clutch in that box this year. They did last year. There is a female bluebird sitting on the cable line at the very left edge of the picture but the trees are obscuring the view of her. My wife saw them going in and out of the box 2 days ago.  I was hoping to show the bluebird and the hawk in the same shot. My wife watched our resident doe with her fawn under the big grape vine in the walnut on the right side of the picture.
