Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Blooming Flowers

Our azalea bush is in full bloom now and looks spectacular!

In our backyard we have these pretty purple flowers. Do not know the name of them. They were here when we moved into our home back in April 1991. I have really enjoyed them every year since.

Last year I received a lily for Easter and potted it in a big container in the backyard. It want be long and I will have a beautiful Easter lily blooming.

I sure do like Azaleas...mine bloom in late winter and are already gone until next year! But I do have some Hibiscus coming back...thought the hard winter had got them...and hope they will be in bloom come summer. Also have some Rose of Sharon I put in last year that should bloom this summer...and of course the annuals I plant every year are in bloom.

One of the numerous things I like about the south is that we can have some kind of color in our flower beds all year long!

Glad to see the flowers are blooming so well in your area. They are starting here in CT. but it is slow coming.
I do like the purple flowers although I am biased because that is my favorite color.
