I changed GAST "Mulberry" to "Cranberry" as I found the original color far too orange/brown for my tastes.
On my walk earlier last week, I startled a group of five deer including a doe with twin fawns.
A curious young buck held ground for a moment to give me a once over.
Then he too dashed off. When I headed up the driveway the doe and bedded down in a meadow with the twins and I startled them all over again. My sister said that young family was bedded down in our backyard Thursday night.
We have three young bucks at the moment.
They are all in velvet.
The dandelions are very popular with the deer and the bunnies.
This doe seems to find something or someone amusing!
Here's the third buck with just the littlest of nubbins!
After getting this post ready for publication Sunday afternoon, look who showed up Sunday evening!
Yep, the doe and the twins.
What's the one fawn looking at you ask?
Quail - very curious about the quail.
The twins are pretty good-sized.
The spots have faded a bit, but they are still adorable.
Time for an afternoon nap! Sounds like a good plan to me!
One year ago today Mom and I visited the Courtauld Gallery.
