Last night's visitor
These were taken around 7 pm last night.
She did not have her baby with her.
Not too many years ago, 3 maybe, we put down black
gold manure (manure that had aged 5 years or more
and was pure black) and a Hayland grass mix that we
purchased from Henniker Farm and Country Store.
While it is loaded with great grass and also has quite
a bit of clover in it. This was planted mainly as pasture
for our sheep, secondly as it makes a nice looking
lawn when mowed. But, Miss Porcupine is pretty
sure that we planted the clover just for her.
She just realized that I was talking to HER!
OH NO!! A HUMAN!
Look how big her eyes look.
Quick! I need to get into the tree to hide.
From here she stayed on the backside of the tree.
At the angle I was at up on the farmer's porch, I was
unable to get any more pictures of her. Generally,
I am on the ground taking pictures. Husband says
that she has a WHITE baby that he has seen 2 out
of 3 nights, including last night. If I can I will get
pictures of the baby as well. A couple of months ago,
we saw a large adult WHITE porcupine about a mile
from the farm crossing the road in front of us from the
farm side of the road. I wonder if that is daddy.
