"Country" Living

We have been having trouble getting our entire backyard mowed since it's been super rainy and when it wasn't, we were out of town. (Also we live on two acres and most of that seems to be grass.) So we have this patch that is pretty tall. Yesterday, when Chris was mowing, he noticed something hidden in the grass.

A tiny fawn.

We looked it up and apparently a fawn has almost no scent, so the mother will leave it in a safe place all day in order to not attract predators to it with her scent. And I guess our backyard looked like a safe place. At least until the mowing. Now it seems that the lawn near the driveway appears safer since that's where the fawn is today.
