Aspen Holiday - Ruth Andre

As I set in my office looking out on the horses and the tree line following the creek I can see two deer moving quickly to the horse corral and scooting in with my oldest mare, Mystery. The deer seem to be accepted by the horses. None of them seem to care that two wild deer are sharing their dinner. I am sure the deer were watching my every move and were just waiting for me to leave the corral and walk to the house. It makes me wonder what else is just out of sight, hidden by the canopy of wild blackberries and old oaks. The painting today is a small forest of Aspen trees and they remind me of where I would like to visit sometime soon. Thinking of an Aspen Holiday has made for, "A Painting Day".

Your painting is lovely, and it makes me wonder just what else might be there among the aspens!
This post inspires me to tell you my story of things lurking in the woods. We have a small patch of forest behind our very suburban home. One recent morning a half grown bobcat walked across our deck, twitched his stubby little tail, surveyed our backyard clover patch,then jumped down among the blossoms. No doubt he was looking for bunnies which have been in very short supply since his visit!
