JK captured this beautiful shot of the sun rising over the Martin tract – and dozens of sheep and lambs greeting the day…
Over on the other side of Hopewell, another nature scene was playing itself out on my front lawn. For starters, I thought we had a deranged fox on our property because we would see it every day, very close to the house. And it looked pretty shaggy.
But as I was pulling out of the driveway this morning, I noticed the fox again. She wasn’t moving, and there was something squirming underneath her. I thought she was perhaps sitting on a groundhog, which would have been perfectly ok with this farmer. But suddenly three little kits bolted from underneath the her and into the den!
As expected, the fox was not happy to be discovered and she grabbed one of the kits and ran.
But she left the other two by the bee hives – playing happily!
She was not pleased with this situation, to say the least.
When I left, she came back and got the the other two kits. I’m sure they’ll be back to the den, but seriously, Mrs. Fox – location is everything! Her den is 50 feet from the front door and 10 feet from the driveway!
