Don't Want No Fox in the Henhouse

In Thursday's post, I didn't think to mention the fox that came through here. On Good Friday, while I was out in the garden, a fox came and stood within 50 ft. of me. It looked at me, unperturbed, twice. I was beginning to think it might be rabid, and started slowly backing up. It looked up as I did, and took off. Being close to the natural world is truly wonderful at times, and really tough at others.

This is the first wild iris bloom of the year. J & I were out last night covering up all we could with buckets, pots, and row cover. The forecast was for 37, and it's not uncommon for us to have a frost with that forecast. We're happy to see we dodged it, so all our little apricots, peaches and strawberries are safe for now. Have a wonderful Saturday!

we too have seen fox during the day- it is a tad unnerving.
