Oh dear, deer me!

I was doing a few things in the kitchen when I glanced out the window and spotted this girl meandering in the back. She was helping to weed eat around the pond and we thank her for that effort! She finally got out of the shadows and into the light where I could get a photo....then she spotted another deer eating corn and she flew in that direction. Unfortunately, the other deer is not good at sharing and chased this girl off. Not that a deer is afraid of what I say, but I did yell at the other deer to stop being so nasty! My husband gets a kick out of it when I talk to the deer, and more so when I reprimand them! Photo is mine obviously!

I am sure they come close to the house in the front - my husband sees their prints in the dirt in front. In back they stay behind the fence. She is a good size but we have a few 'moms' that are huge. They were out this morning, one has twins and one has a single.

When I lived in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania, we had so many deer in our yard. At one time we had almost 10, some moms and some babies. I always talked to them and some would be in my yard as I was gardening. I learned how to plant the right things that the deer did not like. It was challenging until I figured it out. I spent a lot of money on plants before I got it right.
