I had another post on Rome in the armchair series ready to go. All I had to do was hit the publish button. And then Floppy brought by her twins late yesterday. She has had them well hidden ever since the bear made an appearance. But he hasn’t been around for several days. Apparently it is safe now. Anyway, I promised you photos of Floppy’s babies. Here they are. Enjoy. Peggy and I kept handing the camera back and forth so these pictures are from both of us.
NEXT POST: It’s back to Rome, unless, of course…

Darlings. You are very privileged.
Yes we are, Annie. 🙂
That says it. 🙂
Love the ears.
Aren’t they special! “The better to hear you, my deer! 🙂
Thanks for my quota of ‘cute’! 😀
You are welcome, Gunta! 🙂
I wonder if deer parents ever get stressed? The kids certainly have large enough ears in case a dominant mother is tempted to pull on them.
Moms can be pretty bossy, Gerard. Especially when the fawns are really small. The does insist that the babies stay in one place, don’t move, and don’t make any noise. It’s critical for their survival. When they do make noise, the moms make a bee line to their hiding place. To feed the little tikes, I assume, and to reinforce discipline. –Curt
Thank you for this top-up of my cute tanks! Heart melting. And those ears! So enormous.
Filling up cute tanks is good on occasion. 🙂 Thanks, Alison. –Curt
This really is a lot of cute in one post . . . but aren’t we lucky you shared it with us! I would LOVE to see fawns — just maybe not in my yard, of course.
Not in you yard? Gee, Rusha. I am pretty sure they would test all of your flowers to see if they are edible.:) Then you would know. –Curt
I have friends who say they can grow nothing because the deer eat everything in their yards. So I’m glad to see yours at a distance!!
Peggy and I laugh when we look at books on deer resistant plants. The authors always put in a statement that deer may eat the plants. Depends on how hungry they are usually. 🙂 But we’ve found that the ones living around here leave our daffodils, poppies, lavender and spices alone. It might be different five miles down the road. –Curt
Many of our friends who garden have chicken wire fences around the whole plot. They’ve tried a variety of things but have given in to fencing!
Ultimately, the best answer, but we have learned that the plants the deer don’t eat are more or less avoided by other wildlife as well. 🙂
Just heart-meltingly sweet. If those deer were around my place, I’m not sure I’d ever get anything done! Wonderful photos, Curt.
Thanks, Linda. The fawns are an absolute delight. When they are around, things pretty much come to a halt in our household and the cameras come out. –Curt
We need to attentively treat our nature and its creatures. It is important. Do something nice, and they will thank you for it.
Yes they will. It is very much mutual. Thanks. –Curt
I can see why you fawn over your critters…
🙂 Even more so when they get to playing out in our yard.
