That was some weekend. Lots and lots of sun. Warm temperatures. Little if any humidity. The kind of weekend we dream about from November through May.
Occasionally on Sunday there’d be enough clouds to cover the sun temporarily for some nice relief. Throughout my back yard and retention pond, there were enough birds to fill an aviary and form their own wondrous chirping symphony.
Late Sunday afternoon, I couldn’t believe my eyes as I gazed across the pond to the next street over. Sprinting like an Olympic racer was a beautiful deer. Seeing an oncoming car into the subdivision, it immediately left the road to take refuge under a tree. Once the vehicle sped past, the deer took off, headed to a very busy street.
About an hour later, another deer, this time accompanied by a much smaller fry could be seen, again, blazing down the same street and heading toward that same street sure to be filled with motorists.
Check the calendar, then check the roads.
They’re out there.
