Morning peace, sweet visitors and pastoral scene

- Morning peace at the house by the river in western North Carolina.  The back porch temperature was a very cool 60 degrees, so I watched the morning news and had some coffee in one of the mountain pottery mugs my sister's late mother-in-law filled this home with. 

- And there were some very sweet visitors the first morning.  What a treat!  The young deer in the foreground had antlers just coming in.  He was alone for several minutes, drinking water, until his sister wandered out cautiously.  A lovely few minutes, until something spooked them and they retreated back into the forest.

- The cows grazing on the hillside looked so peaceful, that I turned around to snap this photo as I was leaving town.  I cropped out the pesky power lines to capture this pastoral scene.

Click to enlarge, if you can.  Friday - photos from my walk at the river walk park in Murphy, NC., where I got lost, but then found my way back to my car.  :)

Glorious! Peace and tranquility personified!

I love the pottery coffee mug. I have a hand-made coffee mug that is my everyday favourit mug. The one I always drink my coffee from. I'll be devastated if it ever gets broken! Touch wood (or clay) that it doesn't!

It's lovely seeing deer isn't it? Such graceful animals on their spindly legs. We have a family of them that are often in our back garden. They are less appealing when they chew the flowers in the pots. :D
