Friends I've made at the Log Cabin


































I've made several friends at our log cabin. Being in a wooded setting, all sorts of great creatures come your way. My noisiest friends are by far the Chickadees and the Nuthatches who clearly like to inform me when to fill my bird feeder. The black and gray squirrel need some manners about the bird feeders but they do make up for it with all their chases and amusing antics. My turtle is a little shy but does make an appearance here and there. The Bald Eagles that fly over the lake are great teachers of beauty and freedom. The Loons treat me to the most beautiful, haunting music on the lake. The chipmunk has shown me how the dead tree in our yard is actually the "tree of life" for him and the birds. For that, I will never cut it down. I'm looking forward to the many more friends I will make and the lessons they will teach me...

I think your new friends are great! The bald eagles are breath taking aren't they? We have seen a lot this spring, but they never cease to take my breath away each time.

Great story!! Good thing Noah listened to God and loaded up that ark!

We just finally got a bird feeder up where I can watch all different kinds come and go all day, and I love it. We also have three does that live right around the house and are always out there, nibbling at something. Hubby loves to watch for them, and we call them his girls. Don't you just love living somewhere where observing the wildlife is more interesting than rats on the wires and possums in the trees?!

I'm so glad you discovered the Rosehaven Cottage blog so I could come over and discover yours! For about 4 years during my childhood, we lived in the mountains of Colorado with lots of critters so your blog brings back some wonderful memories!
