Oh dear deer

The time has really gotten away from me. I don't know how the whole day flies by and I don't get the things done that I WANT to do in between all the things that MUST be done. Wait.....hhhmmm...I sense a real pattern here.


We have a group of 6 deer that live behind our yard in the woods. They stroll through and wink at us and know they are kept safe in their territory. 

The other day I was backing out of the driveway and there were 5 of them just standing in the road in front of our house. They looked at me and then casually walked towards the woods. Our next door neighbor's son was driving on the street behind us last week during a ice storm and one ran out in front of him. He swerved to avoid hitting it and ended up hitting a tree and breaking the back axle on his Jeep . Luckily he was not hurt; nor was the deer.
My friend a few houses away was having trouble with the deer eating her garden last summer. They jumped over her fence to help themselves and jumped over again into the woods, leaving a mess. I don't have that problem though we have a garden each summer too. We have two big dogs that the deer are not afraid of, but it seems to be enough to keep them out of the yard. Or it could be the fact that my hunter husband looks at them kinda funny sometimes!!

Amy, I'm glad to see you back! What a beautiful area. We have possums once in awhile. That's as close as we get to wildlife here. My brother lives in the mountains and deer are frequent visitors though. They're such quiet creatures.
