Finally! A LITTLE Scythe Work (and a fawn)

It only took me 10 minutes mow around a stump and some grapes and blackberries at the south edge of the yard. It tells a sad story, though, that it SHOULD have taken me only FIVE minutes. Oh well, it's better than nothing. I waited until the day had cooled some; luckily, the humidity wasn't too bad today, though I still ended up raising a good sweat.

I notice that since I cut the early grass, the little white clover is all through the lawn. The small bumblebees are working it hard, and I suspect the deer are trying to eat it. The doe was in the lawn again this evening with her fawn. I think she's hiding it in the brush between here and the road on the north edge of the lawn. I managed to get my wife's attention and she was able to come to the door and see the fawn for the first time. The Mighty Dachshund wanted to growl, of course, but I said "hush" her and she minded. She eventually hid the fawn again and came back out alone to graze.

I like see fawns. They are such a quiet creature.

Yes, I enjoy them, too, LL.
