What a View!

Last weekend we went to a family reunion in North Georgia. We sat outside on one of the decks most of the time eating and talking (it was so much fun to all be together). This year all of our children and grandchildren got to go so it was really lots of fun to have them there with all the cousins and for the family to meet our newest member, Addison, and to see our other grandchildren again. It made this mamma proud!

The view from my cousin's deck is unbelievable. Throughout the time we were there, deer would wander into their backyard to graze or eat the watermelon that had been tossed back there. Occasionally a bear visits them and climbs up on one of the decks to eat the bird seed but not while we were there. We were making far too much noise for a bear, I'm sure.

Below are some pictures taken from their deck. Also, be sure to visit Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for more outdoor pictures.


  1. i love family reunions! and it looks like this deer would like to join you guys.:p

  2. What beauty comes to fill her garden -- a blessing for sure when someone lets wild life come and be at peace in the garden I am sure the bears are happy. Maybe the birds don't mind too much sharing knowing it will be filled tomorrow.

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday,
