And raccoons can climb



There I was, out in the garden, laying more mulch and pulling weeds in the last minutes of daylight when I felt the stare from the raspberry bushes.

A large raccoon sauntered out. Then 3 babes. My son and I talked watched them awhile then went into the house for a camera.





Later they reappeared out from underneath the next-door neighbor's deck - Mama and 5 babes - climbing the apricot tree and ...





learning to climb stairs the hard way. Typical kids.






I've asked them kindly to not dig up the grass and flowers. We'll see.

Awww.

Nice landscaping work.

Hey ... your stone flower beds make a big old smiley face. With one big wavy hair.

Is that intentional? Or perhaps a sign from the beyond?

Definitely a sign from beyond. What it's trying to tell me, I'm not sure. I think I better go home, grab a cold one, sit in the shade garden and contemplate.

Nice layback on that banister. This 'coon has some technique.

Do you see the face?

Turn the photo upside down.

So THAT'S why the neighbors smile when looking down into the yard!

You could have a bear living under that crap in the neighbor's yard! Love the raccoons and your yard! Mom
