Last weekend, I was home with my parents hanging out for a few days and decided to spend the night with one of my old friends, Vicki. We have been friends since high school, so we go way back. She is like a sister to me. She and her hubby live on a small mountain in North Cobb County, GA (they are actually just over the line in Paulding County) and when they moved out there over 20 years ago, it was way out in the country and away from it all.
Not any more. The hustle and bustle have slowly creeped out their way too, but when you are on their little mountain, it’s still just like being in the North Georgia or North Carolina mountains.Her hubby went out to walk the dog that evening, just before dusk and this is what he saw. He called us out to look and I grabbed my camera to capture the beauty. I think there were 5 total out there grazing on the grass, sunlight dappling in on them and making for a beautiful sight. They said this is a normal occurrence in their backyard. They were eating dinner, not too concerned about the people watching from a distance. This one would pop her head up and watch me taking pics.
Not a lot of concern at all with the humans.They are beautiful creatures. Just doing what comes naturally. With sweet little white tails. How cute is this? Once this cute girl, Dixie, was allowed to start her walk, they all went running down the hill, but it was fun to watch them for a few minutes.
It reminded me how peaceful and serene God’s nature really is if we stop and take a look occasionally.
You can’t experience all of this inside the house! Do you live in an area where the deer come up and eat dinner?
I know I’ve heard many homeowners complain about them eating shrubs and flowers, but Vicki and her hubs don’t have to worry about that on their mountain.
