Scenes from a Mountain Cabin

Here are some lovely flowers and faces from our mountain property.  The flowers are courtesy of an unusually wet year.

    These are just beautiful, Monica. Love the furtive moose 😀 What a wonderful place.

    Thanks for sharing.

      We don’t know if the bull had anything to do with the calf. We can only guess. We never see them together. He likes to hide his face – usually – with the rest of him in full view.

    Hey, I love your neighbors! Nothing prettier than flowers in the wild.

    The hide and seek Moose shots are perfectly posed, Monica, he seems to be sending ‘come hither’ looks your way… 😉 … and the array of flowers are enough to lighten any mood… If I need an uplift I always step out into the garden, as Natures abundance of colours are such a joy to appreciate, with the smallest flower perfect in every detail.. I do so envy you your Cabin and it’s surroundings, breathe a deep breath of sweet air in, just for me… xPenx

    • Monica says:

      Dear Pen, It is a wild place, at the end of a road inaccessible to cars in winter. The creatures seem to feel secure there in hunting season – and I hope they are. We have federal land – where hunting is permitted – very close. I’m sure your English garden is magnificent, with flowers in profusion.

      • penpusherpen says:

        The flowers are dying off now Monica, we’re moving into Winter and most of the leaves will be dropping soon, some are quite late falling as the Autumn has been strangely mild this year. Thanks for dropping by my friend and it’s always a pleasure to read your comments. You made me giggle with your response on the Graveyard Poem… I must admit.. I’d say the same (in fact I have done on many times whilst watching a scary movie… ‘don’t go in there!!!’ BUT do they listen?… nope!! 😉 ) … Hope you and yours are having a wonderful week … xPenx

        Dear Pen, Ah WordPress – I have to “reply” before your comment. Oh, well. I love your comments, too. Sometimes I leave a comment and then wonder, how will that be taken? You always take my comments the way they are meant! Thank you. Your winters are probably rainy, rather than snowy. We wouldn’t know what to do with rain in the winter – certainly blame global warming. Snow at our mountain cabin – can’t drive the car in for several months. Winter lasts so long! Tracked some hunters who had walked through the property. Found them on a hill, waiting for the elk to walk by. They saw us and skedaddled.

    For some reason I’m thinking Thoreau’s “Walden” when I’m looking at these pictures. Beautiful and serene images …

    Beautiful photos. Always nice to be close to nature.

  7. jacsprat says:

    Looking at your pictures makes me feel like I’ve gone on a vacation myself. Beautiful flowers!

  8. Androgoth says:

    These photographs are truly excellent Monica,
    I especially like the one of the Bull Moose in the
    trees, he looks a bit startled but still a friendly
    one nonetheless 🙂

    The lovely photographs of those flowers are nice
    too and thank you for sharing this experience with
    us all Monica 🙂

    • Monica says:

      Dear Androgoth, Thank you so much. The bull moose is quite a character. It always gives me a lift to see him. I’m off to check out what’s new with you!

      • Androgoth says:

        I hope that your week is going very smoothly
        and that you will be having a delightful Wednesday 🙂

    Dear Androgoth, Thank you and good wishes to you as well for a fine week.

    Hello Monica.
    Yes ti’s I, Kenny. Feeling very much alive and much like my old self again. So beware I may just sneak up on you when you leased expect it. “Like a Wolf in the night” lol.
    Love your photo’s , the silver birch wood must be delightful to stroll through.
    Take care my friend.
    Kenny !!!

    • Monica says:

      Dear Kenny, I was so happy to see your blog post – hurray for good health – and love having you visit. I have been visiting family on the East Coast and just got back to see your message. I look forward very much to being back in touch! Very best to you!

  12. SandySays1 says:

    Absolutely love the pics! It’s so different than the flat palmetto scrub and palm-lined beaches we are accustom to. Thanks for sharing them. It’s getting close – so – Happy Holidays!
    Sandy

    • Monica says:

      Hi Sandy, Thank you and Happy Holidays to you and your geezer! I can’t feel too sorry for you, with your palm-lined beaches. It is a different world, though – as I realize while reading your book. No canoe trips through the bayou for me, I’m afraid. By the way, why weren’t you in the canoe?

  13. SandySays1 says:

    Remember “Blazing Saddles?” I paraphrase Mongo – Gator love Doggy! I stay out of boats that aren’t Gator proff.

  14. Orel Di Angelo says:

    The photos of the moose are amazing! The moose seems really mysterious, like wanting you to follow him and then loose you in the forest.

    • Monica says:

      Hello Orel, I haven’t seen the moose lately but do see their tracks in the snow. Hunting season has recently closed, so perhaps they will show themselves again soon. Thanks so much for visiting.
