While I was making lunch, I spotted a doe grazing her way across the lawn. I took a few pictures and put the camera away. Then I noticed a yearling following her. The doe saw me move and they both scampered into the undergrowth. It looks like she has not yet dropped this year's fawn. They'll find plenty of hiding places in my mostly uncut grounds.

|Are there prettier lawn ornaments? I think not!|
|And I do appreciate her help in mowing the lawn.|
A friend once told me, "If the only reason you're hanging on to something is sentimentality, then take photos and move on."
And so I took pictures of my four outside doors which ushered in and out so much of our family history. They are familiar and lovely old things, but --- they let in a lot of cold drafts and last winter's propane bills were wicked. Fuel prices are unlikely to reduce so I've ordered four new entry doors that are Energy Star rated. The supplier said that I'll have a nine month wait for them due to demand, the supply chain and labour shortages. So I'll have one more winter of chinking the dear old slammers against the cold.
