Breakfast

Plain homemade yogurt with honey, blueberries, and homemade granola on top.

Someone else came for breakfast. This fawn is a twin. They were about six feet off the front porch when I looked up. So much for the hostas in the front yard..

We have twin fawns this summer too! Of course my twin girls LOVE to watch them. Which is why they each got binoculars for their birthday -- so the elbows will stop flying when the babies and their mama appear in the meadow. So far the deer have not come close enough to munch on our hostas (or roses or hollyhocks). But the tree porcupines are still eating the black locusts, so it's not like I don't know your pain. I know. I know.

That breakfast looks delish! How's the water alarm working with the wildlife?

Gonna have to step away from the computer - your breakfast is making me hungry. Beautiful.

And the deer is adorable. We have a fawn too. But I'm having a hard time thinking it cute. It's eaten new growth off my fruit trees. It calls for its mama just as I'm falling asleep and scares the living daylights out of me. I've found its footprints in the garden. And I know that this cute little fawn is growing everyday into a plant-eating machine...

I forgot to ask yesterday...Have you ever dehydrated your blueberries? If so, how did that work for you?

breakfast looks gorgeous, fawn is adorable, was worried you'd had him for breakfast too! Wish we had fawns round here - imagining it's like Snow White at your house with birds flying in the windows to help you clean up!! (and bees doing the washing.. that kind of thing!)

Oh my gosh...that yogurt and granola looks so GOOD. Don't you just love that it is ALL homemade?! I would love that! (Do you use a yogurt maker?)

The fawn is beautiful...wow. What a blessing to be so close. A shame about the hostas...but what do you do?!

i can't believe you got such a good picture of that fawn - I am going to attempt homemade yogurt either today or tomorrow. Blueberries are not quite ready here yet but hopefully next week.

thank you for your comment on canning. I'm just going to have to get brave and do it!

They say hostas are highly over-rated. I hope that eases your pain. I have given the rabbits a lot of beets, soybeans and kale ... but not willingly.

Still have not eaten breakfast yet this morning. Your photo put me in to hunger mode.
Yum!
I have raspberries fresh picked early this a.m. ..I am thinking muffins.
