Saturday Sparks Link Party 513

Welcome to Saturday Sparks 513! 

 Starting off today's party with this bristly little guy!

Porcupine at Pieced Pastimes

We have two porcupines that wander about our property all the time.

One is quite large and this is the smaller of the pair.

In recent days, a pair of black labs got loose from just down the road.

Luckily, they were found after being missing for a couple of days.

Unfortunately, they were both found with their faces covered in quills.

I suspect our prickly pair may have been involved.

They are gentle creatures but are more than ready if trouble finds them.

  1. Suzanne, porcupines are one animal that aren’t residing here, yet (lol)! It wasn’t that long ago when armadillos didn’t live here, either. Unfortunately, we have been inundated by them. Thanks so much for the wonderful party and featuring my Simple + Southern Sunday! Happy Weekend dear one!

    1. That's so interesting about the armadillos, Pam! They say we don't have mountain lions here in NH, but there seems to be an awful lot of sitings of them. Urban development changes everything. Happy to have featured you. Wishing you a beautiful week, Suzanne.

  2. Oh my goodness those poor labs! And that's the SMALLER of the two porcupines?! Thankful we don't have porcupines or armadillos...yet. Just beavers, coyotes and bears that are the most nuisance (I've only encountered beaver destruction personally to nymph trees on our riverbank). Happy Mother's Day Suzanne!

    1. Yes, Rita - those poor labs! I am thinking they learned a hard lesson. Our beavers were giving us a run for our money, as they had wandered into the fields and took down some of our aspens and poplars. We ended up wrapping the trees in wire and it seems to have cured the problem. 🤞 Wishing you a Very Happy Mother's Day as well - Suzanne.

  3. Thanks again for hosting this lovely party every week! I know how much time goes into doing so and I want you to know that it is greatly appreciated!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!

    1. You are very welcome, Debbie! Have a wonderful Mother's Day - Suzanne.

  4. Thank you for hosting the party. Hope you have a great Mother's Day!

    1. Wishing you a beautiful Mother's Day as well, Virginia - Suzanne.

  5. I am amazed at the constant wild life around your property. SO awesome. Those poor labs! You know they just wanted to play. Thank you for hosting and have a wonderful Mother's Day. XO- MaryJo

    1. Thank-you, MaryJo! We feel blessed to be surrounded by so many of God's creatures. Have a wonderful Mother's Day - Suzanne.

  6. Thank you for the feature and the party! Happy Mother's Day to you!!
