Where The Does Go, Young bucks Follow
Earlier in the week herds of does passed through our yard, last night the bucks came sniffing after them. This one came out in the open and paused to have his picture taken. With such bravdo, he'll do well with the ladies. I have no idea when deer mate, but I am hearing some horns clashing in the woods.
These deer are protected; they live in my neighborhood, a nature preserve. They seem quite at home coming and going and eating my holly bushes. I imagine I'll be seeing quite a few fawns come spring. When do deers mate? What's the gestation period for deer? Dear didn't know.
Does not matter. It was a good day all around: biked to work, revised my client's kitchen, finished a troublesome section of a painting, biked home, got the blinds repaired in the guest room, paused to watch nature in my backyard and went out on the town with old friends to share carrot cake. A little of this, a little of that is what makes this Jill happy. What kind of days make you happy?
ENJOY THE WEEKEND. STAY AWAY FROM THE MALLS
