Freshly Mown

With all the rain we've been having the last couple of weeks, it's been hard to keep up with the mowing. I did get my front yard mowed last evening after work. Even though it's nothing more than field grass, it looks pretty right after I mow it. It's nice to look through pictures of my property and watch it go from an empty field to this.

My hydrangeas look better than they have in years :)

I have the prettiest bee balm this year and the bumble bees love it. I haven't seen a single honeybee anywhere on my property. The other night there was a documentary on PBS and they said that 90-95% of all wild honeybees have been wiped out. If we see any, they are likely from a farmer's hive somewhere.

A little while ago while watching a movie I rented, I saw a doe walk right by the window. I wish I had my camera ready because right by her heels was a tiny fawn - the first one I've seen of the season. It was so incredibly precious trotting along with her...a little unsure of its steps. I doubt it weighed 15 pounds! What a precious site it was to me.
