Monday, Monday

What a day last Monday was!

I was greeted at school by this beautiful doe

and the rest of the buck's harem enjoying their morning meal

as this voyeur looked on.

After class I went for a drive through the corn fields to visit the Lady M.,
owner of two American Chateaux!
Chateau "O" where the Lady will celebrate the autumnal equinox

and Halloween!

And chateau "A" at which I was to meet m'Lady.

The Lady M's bloomers...

what did you think I meant?

The Lady M's Civil War era mountain howitzer...any more smart remarks?

She grew up here

in this valley Cornstalk's people once called home.

This her castle and her throne,

this the "bedrock" on which her dolls had their naps.

Her barn quilt, symbolic

of her towering family legacy.

What a nice tribute to the chateaux! It really is pretty up there - and Lady M is a hoot!

It's glorious picture like these that make me bitter about living in the city! How lucky you are to be surrounded by such beautiful wildlife and such majestic buildings, and thank you for sharing them with us :)

What fascinating structures. I would have to rush to work every day to be in time to see that buck and his harem. What a lovely way to start the day!

The buck was all by his lonesome this morning, Jayne. Didn't have a chance for a pic, but he is magnificent! I'll see what I can do, and yes, it is fun to teach on a campus where the deer, if not the antelope, play...along with squirrels and groundhogs and such :-D

So you're a dislocated Southerner, huh? Sounds more like someone from Georgia with a bum collarbone :)
