Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Nocturnal Visitors




 What went bump in the night?  Two young raccoons climbing on the screen porch door to reach this perch in our beams on the deck.  They were fearless of us and let me get close enough to take their picture.  Mama was nowhere to be seen.  I wonder if we have raccoons living under the porch again this year?




They crawled all over each other trying to occupy each other's space on the beam.



They will be mischief makers when they get bigger.  I wonder if we will see them again?

Hi Marcia, what gorgeous photographs! How wonderful that they let you get so close to them... they obviously haven't learned fear yet :-)

They're cute! We have some that think they're pets, not because they're tame, but because they think we put the dog food out for them!

They are so cute....too bad they will become mishief makers.

We live in a parallel universe and I've just found your garden blog via my friend Holley.
I'm a gardener, you're a gardener.
I'm a teacher, you're a teacher.
I ought to be retired (after 31 years, but I'm not), you're retired.
I have raccoons and baby raccoons in my garden, so do you.
I can't seem to outsmart them either.
I have a garden blog, you have a garden blog.
Wow! Come visit, won't you?
