    Well I did sew a small curtain today for the master bathroom. It needed some color in their but something that was still opaque enough. I think you'll like my choice.

    And then to my backyard being the haven for the local deer population. They are now constantly tracking thru my yard since the big development is going on behind my house on the next road where they cleared a LOT of land that the deer used to call home. So again this year I am not mowing my backyard so they will have something to eat. ( I border the river anyways so its no big deal if I don't cut the backyard).

    The simple curtain I made to bring some color to the master bathroom.

    Although it would have been nice had the deer not eaten the rosebush. Ah well.

    Lovely curtain Henry! I like that border print :D
    And I like your neighbors too. I think it's wonderful of you to leave the back for them to enjoy. :wink:

    Thanks Sue.
    Yea I think it is just sad that all of these animals are being pushed from their homes because of my areas insane need to build up every piece of available land it seems. At least it seems like that to me.

    I love your deer pics, Henry. We are building at 2600 feet, lots of oak trees, pine trees, cedar trees, manzanita and of course lots of deer. We buy corn (in 50 pound bags) and feed them frequently. There are several familiar ones that drop by our "yard" and we so enjoy watching them particularly when the babies start showing up. Last summer, I planted big marigolds in a half barrel and felt so smart that the deer didn't touch them. Oh, I enjoyed those flowers and was sure "our" deer knew we feed them and wouldn't bother them.... Yea, right! One night about six weeks after they had been planted, some critter ate every last bloom.....(we still love our deer, even so......)

    Thanks Amma.

    I like that the wildlife come visit my back yard. It is why I keep it as natural looking as possible. There is a small section of it that i do keep cut so the dogs go out back there and me without having to worry about snakes.

    I'm so disappointed...i really thought you were "sewing" a couple of deer, you know, applique deer, quilting, forest scene, etc., but, i truly could not be disappointed, what a gorgeous back yard, to have a forest right outside your door, gorgeous!

    Love the deer in the back yard! We get an occasional moose. My brother always swore he wasn't going to landscape his yard, just put a sign up that says, "Natural habitat preserved for wildlife." Don't think the homeowners' associations would go for it, however. :D

    Luckily we do not have a crazy home owners association. To me Homeowners associations are a bunch of crazy people with nothing but time on their hands and nothing but busybody, noisy people ( just my opinion and if any of you are on your homeowner associations board or whatever, forgive me.)

    I love the curtain!
    The deer are nice too!
    When we lived in GA, I had them in my backyard. Would toss out the old fruit to them.

    That is a pretty cutain!

    Those are beautiful deer to complement the yard. I love the green! This time of year is our brown season.

    If you want to talk building, you should see around here! It's all 4 story apartments and I swear they want practically this whole area of S Main St to be that way! My parents have had real estate people sniffing around, hoping he'll retire and let them broker the deal for them. It's so sad. Don't get me wrong, the money will be good, but I know he'd prefer to sell the business and see the hospital go on. Nowadays, the veterinarians are in shopping malls!


    I agree about Homeowners associations, and on top of that you have to pay, out here, hundreds of dollars a month in fees!

    We are getting deer all over because they are logging and building housing developments all over the mountains. Mason was waiting for the bus at 7 am and deer cross the road a short ways from them. All kinds of wild animals are coming down. I have never seen so many birds and circling hawks. I hope they save some space :D

    Henry, we buy bags of cracked corn at our local feed store. (even the cost of it has just gone up dramatically---we're probably not going to be able to be so generous....LOL) We also have wild turkeys and you just haven't lived until you see a proud mama with all her little ones behind her, sometimes as many as 13. Maybe, I can get a good pic to post this summer.......

    The homeowners' association he's in now is even worse. There is a couple there I like to call the "Rosenbergs" as they seem to do nothing other than rat out "infractions" on the convenances. It's pathetic.

    However, in another neighborhood close to where he used to live, there were strict rules put up by the association. One of them was the houses MUST be painted an earth tone. So one guy painted his house bright blue. The association pitched a fit, told him he had to repaint his house an appropriate color. He didn't. So they hauled him off to court, where he represented himself. His course of action included a slide projector and screen along with an image of the earth from space. His explanation was that if the earth was over 75% water, and the water appeared blue (the same blue as his house) then it would stand to reason that his house was indeed and "earth tone." He won, he got to keep his house blue and the homeowners' association changed the rules to list specific colors for those in question in the future.
