New life

The other day a mama left her newborn “hidden” in the mulch by our house, while she got some nourishment. I read the mother will leave her fawn well-hidden for hours at a time while feeding. If she has more than one fawn, she hides them in separate places. While they are waiting for their mother to return, the fawns lay on the ground with their heads and necks stretched out flat on the ground. This makes it harder for predators to find them. In this case, the mom left this little one only a short while and it was gone within a couple of hours. But am so happy I was able to get a few photos of it! Even living in the woods we don’t see this very often.

Path to enlightenment…

One time one his followers asked the Buddha what to do until they gained enlightenment. He answered, “Tote water; chop wood.” And what, they asked, would they do after they achieved enlightenment? He answered, “Tote water, chop wood.”

Busy days

I’ve been having such busy days, spring cleaning in the yard and house, I’ve had very little time to post. But thought I’d share a little spring today. I love bluebells, one of my favorite spring flowers. Unfortunately their bloom time is too short, as are so many things in life….so you have to soak up their beauty while you can. Take a few minutes today away from technology, stresses, worries and enjoy something you find beautiful. Feeding the soul is just as important as feeding out bodies.
