Thankful for Stunning Visitors

The coolest photos are at the end, so keep scrolling!

It started off with a foxy stare….

This was the first time I’d ever seen a fox, and I told him that he was welcome here.  Little did I know he understood English.  A few hours later he was lounging under my favorite tree.


Foxy lady made an appearance a few days later



And to my great surprise, along came squee fox!

He may look peaceful, but this little bugger is a perpetual motion machine.  I don’t know how old he is, but I am quite sure he is less than a month because he wasn’t around when his momma and daddy moved in.  I’m also uncertain how red fox+ red fox=grey fox.  Mailman fox?  Or maybe he’ll turn red as he ages.







I am so grateful to see these majestic creatures doing their thing.  Clearly, we are taking this visit as a testament to our fantastic characters and not a reflection of the number of squirrels and chipmunks that used to live here and mysteriously went on vacation in the past month (RIP Fred the squirrel!)

They  get very disturbed by noise, and our construction is not yet 100% complete, so I do hope they stick around.  But even if they don’t, I’ve been awed and amazed by their presence and beauty.  It’s been such a gift, and my understanding is, seeing a baby fox is quite rare.

I’m submitting this to Thankful Thursdays over at InspiredRD and I feel so lucky to be able to share these beauties!

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

    Wait, that’s in your backyard? How cool! I one of those suckers for pictures of baby animals. Or really just any pictures of animals being cute. They must be fun to watch.

  2. Kalinda, It’s been a blast! Yes, they’re in our backyard. No sighting since Weds, though, so we’ll see.

  3. What fun photos Cheryl! Lots’ of birds and bees in my yard, and an occasional raccoon who likes to run around on our roof, but I’ve yet to see a fox. Very cool! BTW-Happy belated bloggaverary to you!!

  4. lololol! Mailman fox? literally lol! Somehow I missed the progression of these photos (saw the first) but read the whole post today! What a wonderful thing to witness! I hope with the new plants we put in the back yard over the weekend we’ll see more butterflies and birds. Michael says he’s seen a fox in our neighborhood before, but I’ve never seen him! I love these pictures!

  5. EA, thanks a bunch! It’s been a great treat.

    Carrie, we had a butterfly bush at the old house and it worked like a charm. Will need one here, too!
