Fawns are definitely out and about and some have hit the ground running. They are the cutest!

Well Looky Here!

We spotted our first fawn this weekend. I wasn’t sure if I’d ever get to see them here at our new place but sure enough, this doe and her baby passed through the meadows yesterday afternoon. I am giddy with excitement but I did keep my distance. I want her to feel safe to come back.

She stopped for a little sip of mother’s milk. So sweet!


Showdown in the Meadow

Earlier this summer, Peekaboo Fawn  caused a ruckus in the meadow.

A cute ruckus I must add.

With a glance to her right, she took off to her left like something was after her.

Turns out she was after something. Chasing turkeys was the name of the game. While mom was grazing, Peekaboo was nipping at the gobblers while they were feasting on bugs.

She stalked and harassed them like a cat hunts a mouse.

She’d get down low, wiggle her booty then jump in the air running them all in different directions.

She’d give them a break…

…and then go at them again. This went on for several minutes until she heard my quiet giggles.

Her curiosity led her closer to me.

We stared at each other for a little while and then she took off to play, er um, to harass the turkeys until bedtime.

Here’s hoping you make room in your day for a little fun. It’ll put a smile on your face every time. 🙂


Goodnight Precious

Look who stopped by the porch for a visit last evening.

And then ran to momma before bedding down near the hay stack. ♥

My little Peekaboo Fawn is a whitetail deer fawn.

Here is a shaggy little mule deer fawn. This is my first sighting of one.

Grazing right by the road isn’t the smartest of ideas.

Thankfully, his big ears heard momma’s snort in the distance and he took off to her. Still got some learnin’ to do.
Oh, but don’t we all.

Now you see me.

Now you don’t.

I feel so lucky that this little fawn and it’s mother have taken up residence in the front meadow.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends.♥


Peace is a Mother’s Love

I spotted our little fawn a few mornings ago hopping and frolicking in the tall grass by the house.

Image

Bambi would quickly check in with mom for a bath…

Image

…and a scrub behind the ears.

Image

There is always time for a suckle.

Image

She spotted me on the porch so she told the little one to take off and hide for the day.

Bambi is getting bigger so traveling with mom is happening more and more.  I’ve seen them by the river and in the meadows further out. But she does check in beside the house every once in a while. Such peaceful beauty just outside the front door makes my heart melt.
I hope this mid-week case of motherly love helps you get through the week. We’ve had our fair share of fires and then wind in the form of funnels so we sure could use some comfort from mother nature… for the rest of the summer please ma’am. 😉
