Our little nursery in the holler...





I just have to post these pictures of our new guests we've had in the holler the last few days. One day this week I told JP that there was a momma deer with twins and I saw them grazing up the hill in the area behind the dog yard. For the last couple of days we've noticed just the babies were hanging out in the front yard with the turkey clan. I hadn't seen the momma and thought either they might be orphaned or just maybe she was doing like I've seen cattle do with their little ones, park them in the shade during the heat of the day while she grazes.



They were in our front yard all day today and they kept moving closer to the house. At first they were down by the creek, then they moved to the shade of one of the trees lining our driveway. Well, happy ending, the mom came and picked them up and we watched them go off into the field. I guess we've been given the honor of watching the babies while she goes off on her errands for the day. It's a tough life in the holler--blessings to you all...

Oh that is so beautiful. What a joy and a privilege to be able to witness these little ones. You have no idea how lucky you are (probably a better word - blessed) to have these two in your company. I really hope they stay. It will be lovely to follow their progress.
BTW Thank you again for your prayers, S....you are doing an amazing job.
Sending lotsaluv,

Too cute. I love to see deer! I see them driving home at night sometimes, so I have to drive very slow up the street from my house!
Happy Labor Day weekend!
