Friday the moose were on patrol on the old logging road that runs through our property ... right behind one of our gardens. They were too quick to snap their picture.

Now that summer is winding down, and 'food' is drying up, the forest critters are visiting our yard more often. I see that my newly planted grapevine will need to be moved or better protected. It's an expensive venture to garden in the woods. Without proper backyard fencing, the animals seem to graze here and there. Our veggie gardens have some protection with fencing immediately around them, which will have to do as we live in a an area heavily populated with wild creatures.

I'm sure this mama deer and her fawn have a place they bed down in our yard as I've seen soft impressions under a little low growing fir tree.
