Now that the weather has settled down and some melt has taken place, the deer are coming out of the golf course behind my property.
These four browsed on the pine tree tips and paid much attention to a spot under an evergreen where the turf was exposed. They've been back there now for a couple of hours and we gaze at each other through the kitchen window.
I enjoy watching them this time of year, but I do not encourage them. I've had summer's where most all of my veg plants were eaten to nubs by these tawny beasts.
Still, they are beautiful, graceful creatures so I cannot feel ill toward them (unlike groundhogs - honestly, don't even get me started! ;-D )
