Remember when we complained about it being too cold?

Jeez Lousie it's hot outside today! Lars and I are down in the underground bunker, uh, office drafting (he's sleeping) where it's cooler. According to Weather Bug, it's 92 outside. Welcome back summer!

Hmph....I had a post already figured out and I was going to have a discussion about an atrocity I had seen a landscape "professional" do. I can't seem to find the photo of some seriously bad pruning complete with orange, dyed mulch. Bummer. I was in the mood to be snarky too.
I guess I must wing my post today then!

Earlier this year I had mentioned the foxes that have come to our neighborhood. A couple of weeks ago, I had gotten some great photos from the safety of our living room window. These guys, I think, are youngsters and the numbers of them are making think they are litter mates. Lars was causing a ruckus that would pierce through 3" lead and they didn't seem to be too bothered by it.

They were playing almost like young dogs do out there and I took these around 7:30/8 pm at night. They haven't been as high profile since I took these and my sightings have been sporadic. But I did see a spike buck white deer on the side yard where the picket fence it one morning as I was making my coffee. I ran to get my camera and by the time I got back, he was gone. Hopefully, he won't be back because I really don't want to have to deal with deer damage in my yard full of non deer tolerant plants.
