resting up from mischief

twin fawns eyeing my kitchen garden
~~
a nibble here, a tiny footprint there...just opening rosebuds nipped clean...
the raspberry patch looking a little like a mouse had clumb up the stems and taken only the most succulent of the berries.
The telltale tiny bite from a yellow cherry tomato, still on the vine.
~~ I had nearly given up hope of seeing fawns down in the trees after this odd year of not many wild things coming into the fields and yard. There hasn't been the usual flurry of quail and pheasant, no large herds of deer coming down from the hills in the evenings to the cool green hay fields.
~~
This morning I was so glad to see these 2 little ones playing in my garden.
Somehow it makes everything right with the world.
and here they are...the naughty twin fawns. they nibble my lettuce and paw out newly planted peas. and even so, it makes me happy to see them again.

Those little rascals; but they're so darn cute! I wonder what they're discussing while eyeing your kitchen garden? Dessert maybe? or "Let's not tell the others."

They are so wonderful to watch.
We can not blame those that need to provide for their families, just like our forefathers did.
Nature has always been so giving as long as we don't take too much.

Oh Goodness what little sweethearts.

This economy is a difficult one and I feel awful for those that are struggling deeply right now. We all are doing what we can to keep our families going.

The blessing of Twinnies again! We've seen quite a few deer here this year, but not fawns. I have a little bunny family that dance around the back yard at night... it's been awhile. such goode things in life.
