Newborn Twins

Whitetailed FawnWhitetailed FawnMy sister took these two photos of newborn white-tailed deer fawns in the woods near her house. They were still wet!

They were well camouflaged amidst the beech leaves and didn’t move a muscle. Apparently, newborns do not have a scent in order to avoid detection from predators.

Their mama did come back for them as they were gone when she returned to check on them later. Off into the world– Bon chance, wee ones!

Primrose Yellow

In my gardens, I have three colors of Cowslips (Primula veris): red/orange, deep yellow and pale yellow, which is my favorite. I’ve arranged it with the lovely sky-blue Grape Hyacinth (Muscari armeniacum) ‘Valerie Finnis’a sprig of Euphorbia ‘Diamond Frost’ and Barrenwort (Epimedium x versicolor ‘Sulphureum’).

How nice it is to have blooming flowers from my own garden to arrange once again!
