The doe has been using Oakland Cemetery as her daycare, and my wife walks in here during the day, and reminisces on her walks about some of the people we knew that retired, and thereafter retired here. There is new life here.

These fawns look so vulnerable.

They are vulnerable. It apparently is not uncommon for does to leave their fawns much of the day.

It is possible we could have walked up and touched the one lying alert between the three stones. But, I didn't want to to risk having them run and getting too far afield from where their mother left them lest she permanently lose track of them. They acted as if they were told to stay still until I get back. My wife became so obsessed, she hung out at the cemetery a few hours in hopes she would see the mother come back for them. One of the other walkers told her the time range he has seen the doe return for them.
