Unexpected Lunch Guest

What a beautiful October day. Ed had just come inside for lunch when I spotted the fox in the garden. Usually fox sightings are made  in the morning or early evening, but not this time. We watched as the fox wandered among the plants. He sat down and gave the back of his head a good scratch.  We wondered if the fox is healthy. He looked rather lanky and seemed to be without his thick  winter coat. Perhaps the lack of cold weather has made a difference. When the fox decided to leave, he ran off quickly into the pines. He certainly looked like he was feeling fine then.

Ed finished planting the last of his garlic in the wilderness garden. It's good to have that done. Rain is forecast and the hunters are out and about. Bow season for deer starts on Saturday.
