Harriet's Early Morning Surprise

Imagine Harriet's surprise when I went to let her out the back door of the gift shop and she laid eyes on these beautiful creatures. They were very content munching away on some of the over wintering perennials not ten feet from the door ~~ guess we will have more to plant in the display gardens in the spring. Before I could get back to the office and get my camera they had high tailed it down to the river. When I looked over to the left there were 6 or 7 more over behind the gazebo in the River Garden. Such an amazing sight. Now, I know that those of you that have to deal with these creatures eating your plants every day probably don't feel the same. But on a cold morning in February it was a wonderful way to start the day. And Harriet, she decided to sleep inside today. Take care and stay warm. Susan
