OK~ We had a very wet summer early on, and now it has turned very dry here in Northern Iowa. Our lawn is pretty much toast, and due to the rains early on, our garden has been very fruitful. And I'm also observing the fruitfulness of the critters that roam. From the skunks, to the raccoons, and field mice~ it looks to have been a very fruitful season for them as well. There's something about those smelly skunks that just drives this Mom nuts! Could it be that our two dogs, along with a 16 year old son, are just drawn in by the scent of one of those black/white critters?
And the deer population has also exploded. It's not uncommon to sight more than four dear in one mile, on the way to our home. So, once those corn fields begin leaving the landscape, we will have those crazy four legged creatures galavanting all over the place. It looks to have been a fruitful season in Iowa when it comes to these lovely critters....One has to love the great Iowa out-doors and all that goes with it! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
