Sometimes Life Feels Like A Disney Movie

If you have been following my blog some of this will seem familiar.

Like the baby bunnies we found in the nest in our blueberry patch.

and of course the family of skunks we encountered recently.

Nothing could be farther from the truth. One day last week my husband was going to attempt to till up the front garden bed. I was talking to him on the phone when he said, “what the heck is that?” I waited for him to tell me what he saw. Then he said “oh, it’s a baby deer.” He at first thought that it was dead, but then it jumped to it’s feet and scurried off running into a tree stump before disappearing amongst high weeds and trees. I am certain it didn’t go far and momma was somewhere in the area and would return before long.

I don’t have any pictures of that baby because my husband doesn’t carry a camera, but a few days later I spotted this doe dinning on chicken scratch in the driveway. This is quite possibly momma.

“Bambi’s” or white tail deer are quite at home on our farm and in the spring it is common to see momma’s with their young, often twins or triplets.

The photo below is a set of triplets that were born last spring.

Have you every felt like your life was like a Disney movie? Which Disney movie would you want to live?

Happy Mother’s Day

I didn’t plan on posting anything today until my husband showed me what he discovered next to one of the blueberry bushes.

It’s hard to make out, but there are 4 baby bunnies in this nest. They are only two or three inches long. We left the nest undisturbed and did not touch any of the babies so Momma will come back and care for them.
