Dug into the archives again for this one—a fawn seemed appropriate, it being the day after Easter and the first day of April.
The fawn was actually one of twins I saw wandering around in a southwestern Pennsylvania cemetery.
As a gardener and Michigander, I’m fully aware that deer, no matter how graceful, are really just enormous rats that kill about 150 people on the roads every year (they cause about 1.5 million collisions, and if you’ve ever hit a deer or know someone who has, it’s never good, for the human, the deer, or the car), and less importantly, ravage our vegetable and flower gardens.
These babies, however, probably hadn’t quite entered the realm of offenders yet—and they are lovely creatures. No doubt the cemetery was a very safe place for them to be born and live.
Have a great Monday!
