Within hours of returning back home from our trip down to the Devonshire/Somerset border, a small miracle of new birth happened in our garden. One of our many rogue Roe deer, possibly one of those that have been demolishing our flowers, gave birth to the sweetish, prettiest little fawn that you have ever seen - we could hardly believe what we were witnessing.Here she is licking her baby to encourage her to stand up and feed. We have decided that she is a girl, and named her 'Blossom'. After all her mother may have been one of those 'dining out' on our flowers throughout much of the Spring.
Wobbling up onto her feet was not an easy task, she would feed for a couple of minutes before then collapsing back down on to the ground again.
Whilst mother demolished more of our plants. However, their requirements are far greater than ours, needing all of the extra nourishment that they can both get.
