I have to share with you the baby we had resting in our lawn. Mama deer had twins and we watched them get up right after they’d been born but apparently one didn’t make it so this adorable twin is without it’s brother or sister. Every year mama brings her babies, almost to the exact spot, and instructs the fawn to nap all day, and she’ll be back for it. Deer do that to their young you know? Just when you think mama is never coming back she finally arrives and takes her baby into the woods. This year the baby was sleeping in the lawn for about 16 hours.
And wouldn’t you know it, it was only feet from the house on the side I had planned to paint and hanger shutters on that day. Well that didn’t happen, I let the baby sleep all day and decided I would resume my painting the following day. Just about dusk mama returned and they both meandered back into the woods. I have spent more time this year changing my plans due to critters. In an upcoming post I’ll share with you the Robin nest just outside my door. I spent weeks using another entrance just to avoid disturbing the nesting mama. I must say I have a soft spot when it comes to critters and tend to cater to their needs.
