So, I get this email from my friend Jim Bessey, (He's also that dude over at Just Camping, a blog for avid camping enthusiasts, just in case you wanted to know) and he says, "Betcha you don't have what I have growing in my backyard."
Well, that sounded rather smug to me and a bit like a challenge! --Yes, I can plainly hear smugness even in emails!-- "You mean other than the seeds from your Phlox paniculata you promised me last year which you still haven't sent me?" I said.
That's when he told me the seeds were on his workbench with my name clearly printed in bold ink, which does me no good whatsoever! But I digress.
"You think you have something growing in your yard that I can't grow in mine???" I said, quite indignant. So, I say, "Do tell, Jim! What do you have in your garden that I don't." And this is what he sent me...
And there was the tiny fawn sitting among the Lily-of-the-Valley and other sundry plants.
tile guy, (in case you didn't know) and a procrastinator --I am still awaiting those seeds!-- but he ain't no dummy! He knows a good photo opportunity when he sees one.
The fawn wandered around a bit allowing them plenty of time for pictures.
Bravo, Jimmy-boy! Thanks so much for the pictures!
