little visitors

I've had the cutest little visitors in 
my yard for the last few weeks!

a set of twins!
Their mother is never far away.
We live on two acres and are used to seeing adult deer....
but these babies are precious!
When they got a little too close to the hydrangeas,
I walked outside to shoo them away.

Yesterday, in the late afternoon,
we watched them running & playing 
in our backyard.

They wandered too far & the mother was worried.
She stood looking in all directions for her two little ones.
Finally, they bounced back into view.
She then led them back into the trees.

Have a great weekend!

a visit to Newport

Joining Mosaic Monday @ Little Red House
So many lovely mosaics to see there!
I'm also linking to Sally's Blue Monday.

Last week, my daughter & I took a long-awaited trip to
Newport, RI.
Well worth the wait!
The mansions were gorgeous, the scenery was spectacular,
my favorite hydrangeas were in bloom!

Thanks for visiting me 
and have a great week!

new little painting


Blue Hydrangea

Is there any flower
more soft & summery 
than a blue hydrangea?

Have a great weekend!

I have not fallen off the face of the earth.
Just got back 
from a nice little trip
a computer mess
think I fixed it.
Be back soon.
