Summer: Fawns & Flowers

At a time when landscapes shimmer under the afternoon heat, early morning is the best time to see natures beauty unfold.  Black-eyed Susan's brighten our landscape most anywhere that has escaped the blade of the mower.

Wild Morning Glories dot overgrown fields and roadsides.  The blooms are short lived, closing their fragile petals soon after sunrise.

A close-up of the Morning Glory reveals dew drops glistening like jewels in the diffused sunlight shining through the silken bloom.

Whitetail fawns are also very active during the cool of the morning.  Exploring their new world and cavorting about, must at times, take second place to a refueling stop.

Appearing almost as Siamese twins, a pair of fawns graze while the grass remains wet with dew.

I appreciate everyone's comments and well wishes concerning my illness.  I have had a nearly complete recovery since my body temperature returned to normal.  The rash is nearly gone but I tire more easily than before.  I am awaiting to hear the outcome of lab test and then expect to consult with my doctor concerning whether more treatment is required.

Very nice photos, Coy.

I had forgotten about Lyme disease. Hope you got through it OK.

Yes, it is a bitch to have city ordinances about the lawns but we got them. We don't have to have grass. It can even be flowers but those have to be kept under 18inches in height. So I have a little of many different kinds of grasses, with none that compare with the neighbor's lawns who are kept perfect by paying for a lawn service once a month. I don't do that.

Mother said if it was green it was lawn. I pretty much still agree with her.

I don't ever tire of your whitetail photos! I read the post about your lyme rash. How frightening! I'm so glad you were on the right anti-biotics to start with and I'll pray you recover from the fatigue part quickly, too!
