Having the baby deer visiting in our backyard is a glorious way to commence our summer. They are just so darn cute and seemingly always full of energy and curiosity!
Not sure how they’ll take to all our work in the backyard over the summer but hopefully they’ll approve. These little cuties at least should prove to be fabulous mascots. There’s a lot, and I mean a LOT, of work planned for our backyard over the summer with fences, stairs, and leveling hoping to be ticked off the list.
Consequently all this work will have me away from the computer for a good part, if not all, of the summer. With that in mind I wish you all a safe and happy summer creating wonderful memories however you choose to spend your time, and I look forward to catching up with you again in the fall!
The mother deer who gave birth to twins in our backyard last May, often brings her two babies back for visit. No matter how quickly they grow, they are still to us our babies.
Now the two fawns are much bigger, only one at a time will ever rest near their mother. Perhaps this is a “deer thing” or it could simply be a case of this mound in our backyard really is just big enough for two!
This young lad had us smiling out loud when he stopped by Christmas morning to complete our picture of a white, albeit a very light white, Christmas complete with (rein)deer. Bless him, the lone antler lad.

This is Herbert. I’d popped into the grocery store last month to simply pick up some milk and came away with Herbert. Herbert being the name the woman behind me in line named him. It stuck. He looks like a Herbert.
Herbert really is rockin’ the rustic vibe with all those pine-cones, twigs and burlap. His facial expression though for me is priceless. He really does appear to be quite shocked at being called a Llama.
Llama is the One Word Photo Challenge from Tourmaline this week.
