The other evening while doing dishes (my dishwasher is attached to my arms) I noticed a little activity out by the compose pile. Sure enough, my resident raccoon was out there, and then I noticed a bit of movement behind the lilies. The fox was checking out what we had had for supper.
The fox was so intent on eating, i was able to get pretty close.
We call the raccoons Coonie-bears as a way of reminding the kids that raccoons are actually members of the bear family. And for those of you who have never seen a gray fox – here she is. The purple flower is sage. The pink one is a young azalea.
