Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis) plants seem to be flowering abundantly this year, although until this one, I've had trouble getting a good photo of one.

Lots of Deer This Year

This photo, taken through the screen on our back porch, shows a doe and what appear to be twin fawns. At least one other doe, this with a single fawn, shows up with them sometimes. For the most part they are quite tame. Our dog pays them little heed, and they aren't intimidated by him. One possible reason they have been hanging out in our lawns is to get out of the woods and away from the mosquitoes, which have been very bad since Tropical Storm Debby.
