May, has to be one of my favorite months!Spring has sprung and those visions I had in the dead of winter are starting to appear!Before I get to far into the garden I must tell you all about the dear ,dear, deer update.The Lindsay Museum kept her!All my ranting and raving and my high-pitched voice wailing should I come back and get her worked!To brief those who perhaps just jumped onboard at VINTAGE HEN HOUSE I found a very young deer in the middle of a four lane road……..I got her to the side where she waited patiently for her MAMA to appear, which never did happen so ,(she decided to go for another walk and find her MAMA……….this time down to the grocery store!As numerous people gawked , (so I was told )another call was made to the WILDLIFE SANCTUARY for assistance.They were NOT coming ,I closed up shop at 11:15 am and went to fetch her.A brief run about back into the busy road under a huge parked truck she did dive ;only to end up in the shrubbery hidden from view.Amazing how well they blend in even if you know they are there!I reached in and picked her up to her wails of wonderment of is this going to be okay??She did not fight me nor try to get out of my arms.She new she was safe and I felt confident about taking her home to the CASA where other four-legged creatures would greet with big eyes, wet noses and licks of affection and concern. I should have kept her but listen to that ITALIAN I MARRIED 27 years ago……….I suppose I did the right thing………….MAYBE!A cute ending to this story was when I told my 87 year old Mother she said,”Why didn’t you bring it to me! Why did you listen to him!”Sometimes,some often Mother knows BEST!
