I was looking for a picture of Arlington all decked out with flags for Memorial Day, but this one shook me to my core. This is the reality of the day.
God Bless America and our brave young men and women who serve.
Here in Central Texas it’s celebration time…of course, we’re so proud to be part Pink Saturday and we’re so grateful that Miz Beverly devised her weekly party to celebrate all things PINK .
My contribution this week is Pink in attitude and in sweetness rather than actual Pink… it’s a precious fawn who hangs around our lawn…The Fawn in the Lawn we call her…usually she hunkers down in a flower bed, but on this sunny morning, she was out in the open side yard beside the driveway…no cover, no brush, no bushes…
She thinks if she nestles down into the grass that nobody can see her…I guess the principles of protective coloring have not been fully explained to her…when she is in the thicket, she just about disappears…
See what I mean? But then she heads out into the meadow and just plops down right out in the open…she certainly is a city deer…they don’t have the fear factor of fawns who are surrounded by predators.
Isn’t she darling? We have several fawns that we have seen. We have no idea how many new babies we have out in the brush this spring…when they are still, even in light cover, they disappear... she has a little cousin fawn who is younger and even smaller…but I’ve never had camera at hand when she has been out in the open. I’ll try to chronicle their growth this year even if I have to hang my camera around my neck like some perpetual tourist. But now, I’m off to join the party that’s gathered around Miz Beverly over at How Sweet The Sound
