As I walked around the corner I ran into a beautiful baby deer, not much older than a couple of weeks. I don’t know who was more surprised, me or Bambi.
Following right behind was a sibling.
If you remembr my post about Petunia a few weeks ago, my suspicions that she was was pregnant were right on. She has been away for a few weeks, obviously up in the back of the farm busy giving birth to twins. They could not be sweeter. Now that they are a few weeks old she has brought them down to show off. I expected Petunia to be a bit nervous when she saw how close I was to her fawns, and I was definitely being careful as a mother deer can be very protective. However, after a few looks in our direction, she just dropped her head and continued feasting on my raspberries. I guess she knows a good situation when she sees one. After a few moments the fawns became a bit nervous and scurried over and under the fence to join their Mother.
There is no doubt in my mind that we will be seeing this little family every day. It’s worth a few chewed plants to be part of such a miracle!
