I seem to be discovering
something in nature just about every day at the new house. One day, it was that
8 of the huge pots in the garden have a variety of orchid planted in them. They
are severely crowded and need some love. I’m hesitant to touch them; I tend to
kill plants I try to love.

Yesterday I was taking a break
from trying to figure out how to notate the pattern for the skirt of the angel.
Right there, in the middle of the street, stood a white deer! I know that not
all animals with white coats are true albinos. I had never seen a white deer.
Just read about King Arthur chasing the white stag; the Kings and Queens
chasing a white stag and ending up in a wardrobe; the Ghost Stag of some
fairytale my son was reading; you get the picture. But, there…..just feet from
A white doe.
Neighbors I occasionally walk
with confirmed I wasn’t imagining it. Seems it was born 3 seasons ago. It
warmed my heart to think that it has thrived here in a rather urban setting. If
you search the local tv station archive, you’ll find a couple of stories with
good pictures. I have to wonder, as a mom, if she has raised any fauns and what
color their coat is.
Ok. Enough distraction. I must
finish this pattern. There are other tatters waiting to tat these angels for
shawls. I also need to get started on Christmas presents
