Yes. I do live in SnowWhiteLand (*robblerobble*).

Yesterday morn, I was telling Don how our bird feeder has been attracting quite the avian crowd. The most recent guests were a pair of goldfinches (male and female). As I described how amazingly vivid they were, I looked out the kitchen door to see a pair of wild turkeys ambling along the back fence.

"And look at that," he replied, pointing out the side kitchen window. A deer was strolling up the driveway; another was nibbling the grass near the Goa'uld's Gym.

About twenty minutes later, as I was leaving for Connecticut, one of the deer had made it to my back patio and was hanging out by the firepit. "Hey!" I said. "Don't mind me. I'm just getting in my car. You can stay." And damned if it didn't hang out, not ten feet away, watching as I got into Moya.

And then a rabbit brought me a cup of tea, and several mice started taking measurements for my new ballgown.

*** I should also add that there are fireflies glittering in the line of hemlocks. Fireflies are magical. Truly.

yeah, i've found that the Deer are pretty tame if ya just talk to them and don't do anything threatening. heh, the other day i saw one strolling along the road by the lake by me. Just walking along like anyone would. it wasn't until i stopped the car to watch him that he wandered off into the woods.

I've found the deer in this area tend not to bolt as long as it doesn't look like you are walking directly towards them. If you go past them towards something else (even if it's an imaginary target you pick out), they don't perceive you as a threat. Pretending you aren't looking at them much helps too. :)

Yea for fireflies -- they're actually a sign that the environment around you is not filled with nasty toxic stuff. I really miss the abundance of fireflies I used to see when I was young -- glad to hear the re-emerging around your home.

Was there spontaneous singing?! Y'know, and dancing with small miners and the like?

Oh, and fireflies are magical. They can make a gross strip of new jersey highway look mystical. That? Takes nothing short of a miracle.
