Urban Fawn Spent the Day in the Weeds

My friend reassured me the mother would return, that they leave them in a safe place. I’m hoping that reunion occurred in the night. It was certainly a surprise to find the little fawn looking at me when I went out to get in the car to go to the post office. The fawn spent the day in my backyard, under the apple tree, hidden in some tall weeds. My next door neighbor had helped me plant some heirloom tomato plants and went with me to the very back yard and confirmed it was still lying there. I was concerned it was abandoned but when I called the city help line they said non-threatening wildlife is left to nature. Leave it alone. So I did.

The Redbud is in Bloom for Easter

Eastern Redbud tree. It was a beautiful day today before the downpour of rain arrived Saturday night. Just look at that blue sky.

A friend planted the Redbud  in my backyard as a memorial to my parents after they’d passed. Thanks, Ginny.

It was my parents favorite type of tree. The way the pink blossoms emerge along the entire branch makes it a stand out amongst the flowering trees.

4 Cosmic Hula Hoops from Cambridge OHIO

I stopped at Exit 178- Cambridge and popped into the K-Mart to get a phone cord charger.

Saw these Cosmic Hula Hoops and bought 4 for the grandkids as I was on my way.  Had a repeat light writing blog in mind as I drove the rest of the way to Columbus.

So four hula hoops, with blinking lights, plus four grandchildren willing to experiment with light equals a fun night photography effort

They helped Grandma capture a different kind of light writing in the backyard when it got dark outside.

I’d say the first day of retirement was a good one!

We used lightning sticks before which might have been easier to maneuver but not as bright.
