Unusual Hot February Days and Unusual Visitors


Here in Texas the February days have been up to 86 degrees.  The Italian Jasmine
is glimmering in the sunshine and is full of buzzing honey bees. 
One day we got a large rain .  Along came the same coyote that I have shown to  you 
in previous posts.  It looks pretty wet this day.  There is a large section of woods that surround our home and for years ,I have taken the kitchen scraps out to the woods.  I no longer have chickens to eat the scraps.
The coyotes and the raccoons enjoy this feast. I have noticed now, 
when I bang the scrap bucket, in just a few moments, the coyote has shown up to 
eat.  If I dare say hello ......it runs away.  It is good that it is scared of me. 
This morning we had two unusual visitors to the feed and water spot.  I am braver to greet a pack of wild coyote compared to these two wild hogs.  They have razor teeth, courage,  and extremely angry attitudes. They can be very dangerous.

I let them hang around just long enough to get a few good photos then I yelled at them
very loudly and thankfully they ran away.  I hope they don't come back for another visit, but now that they have found water and feed, they will more than likely stop by again. 
While these days are almost like days of summer.......we who live in this area know that in a blink of an eye, Texas can get a big snow.  We don't dare plant anything at this time because of this unpredictable weather. 
Are you enjoying sunny and pretty days?  Are snowflakes still falling by your window?
Have you had any unusual backyard visitors?
I would love to hear!
